Tellin' Tales Theatre Presents
Six Stories Up in the Attic

Have you ever been curious about a dilapidated house? Is it haunted perhaps? Five curious middle school kids wonder just that as they find themselves across the street from an abandoned house in their neighborhood. One brave boy breaks a window and finds himself inside a magical attic where memories and personal stories are stored. When Artificial Intelligence threatens to take over all human stories, the boy and his friends must save the stories.

Six Stories Up in the Attic is the result of an annual mentoring program between middle school students and adult theater mentors now in its 26th year. 

November 3, 4, 5 and 10, 11, 12 (sign language interpretation and audio description available on November 5)

Tellin' Tales Theatre

Tellin’ Tales exists to create a bridge between children and adults with disabilities and those without disabilities through the nurturing and innovative performances of people’s personal stories. This is achieved through mentoring and collaboration. A key goal is to bring together diverse populations all the while helping them to recognize commonalities and build a strong sense of community in Chicago.

What makes Tellin’ Tales Theatre different from other organizations is not only its mission and methodology, but the remarkable balance of volunteers and mentors – with and without disabilities – dedicated to giving children and adults a forum for writing and performing transformative works.

The program is truly unique and its results are life-changing – for the students, the families, the siblings and the audience. At the 20th Anniversary Celebration in May 2016 numerous Six Stories Up “alumni” and siblings returned sharing how Tellin’ Tales has positively impacted their lives, their perspectives and career choices.
