The Best Story Tellers by Paola Manrras

The performance I attended was Stories around the World at the Logan Center the performers were Jasmin Cardenas, Anne Shimojima, and Oba King. Each performer told two very short stories that had a message at the end.
The performers told the story with a lot of enthusiasm and facial expression. They didn’t have a play or read it from a book they had it memorized I think which was pretty cool. They were all so excited about the show. Jasmin, Anne, and Oba had a clear voice when they were talking you were able to understand their speaking even if you were at the back they had a clear voice.
When Jasmin Cardenas was telling her stories they were funny and interesting which made me feel happy. In Anne Shimojima stories one story was really funny which made me laugh and then there was this storiy that she told that made me feel sad. Finally in Oba King his story he only told one story which I think had a really good message.
All three performers had an overall message. Jasmin was “Different isn’t bad it’s just being different”. Anne was “Be kind to others and they will be kind to you.” Oba King was “Color in the outside doesn’t matter. What matters is what’s inside.”
