CLINTON — Kirkland Town Library, 9 1/2 E. Park Row, will hold an online performance of The Secret Life of Your Third Grade Teacher with Micaela Blei on Zoom at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 9. There will also be a storytelling workshop with Blei on Sunday, May 10, from 1-3 p.m.
About the show
In her award-winning solo show The Secret Life of Your Third Grade Teacher, Blei — a former elementary school teacher and a two-time Moth Grand SLAM champion — comes clean about classroom disasters and secret loves. It’s a story for grown-ups about the dangers of playing pretend.
“Micaela Blei’s solo show about teaching third grade is fresh, hilarious, and surprisingly moving,” said Sarah Moore, of Theater is Easy.
About the workshop
Join Micaela Blei on Zoom for an afternoon of storytelling. Whether it’s a story for a slam, a wedding toast, a mission statement or the beginnings of a memoir — Blei can help participants find their story’s focus, and the confidence to captivate their audience. The workshop is for everyone from beginners who want to build confidence and find their stories, to storytellers who want new tools for their toolbox.
