Grown Folks Stories


The GreenLight Series presents Grown Folks Stories, created by Cara Brigandi and Eric Williams, founder and owner of The Silver Room. Grown Folks Stories is two hours of five minute stories that range from the hilarious to the absolutely somber. Come join this ever-popular gathering of nonprofessional, unrehearsed storytellers, who give us the real stories we live everyday. There is no theme, no judging, no poetry, no readings. It's storytelling that you've never experienced before. Hosted by Whitney Capps

Free and open to the public. Age 18+. Suggested $5 donation. Doors open and signups start at 6:30pm. Storytelling starts at 7pm.


The GreenLight Series illuminates the varied performing arts disciplines producing work in the Green Line Arts Performing Center. Arts + Public Life (APL) invites audiences to experience a rotating sample of storytelling, music performances, comedy, theater, and dance works presented by ensembles, collectives and individuals.
