TRUE_birth logotrueBIRTH
Jan. 28

Featuring five storytellers who’ve seen it or done it and are gathering to tell a story about it. Join us for an evening of birth-themed stories. Hear from a woman who thought she was too young to have a child; another who thought she was prepared to; a nurse who’s seen it all; a doula who’s seeing a pattern; and a runaway (if you count running to her grandmother’s house). Five great stories told from the people who lived them. Join us for another FREE evening of “turning strangers into friends” as we continue our eleventh season.

  • Streaming Thu, Jan. 28 at 7:30pm

trueSUFFRAGE Online on July 23

July 23
Zoom & Facebook Live [Online]

With the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which states that the “right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex” coming up, we are honoring this historic event with a show dedicated entirely to stories of female empowerment. Be prepared to be moved and inspired at “trueSUFFRAGE”!

Now in their 10th season, True Theatre continues to produce quarterly one-night-only events featuring five people, from all walks of life, sharing true, personal stories, based on the theme of the evening.

Free Online trueFAKES on May 7

TRUE_trueFAKES logoTo our True friends,

EVERYBODY will have a chance to watch our next storytelling event, “trueFAKES,” this-coming Thursday (May 7) at 7:30 PM (live online!) for FREE, but only those who register to join the Zoom event will be able to be “in the audience” and answer polls and participate in the Q&A that we are adding at the end of the show (a first for us!).

Below, you will find the registration link, but our Zoom account limits attendance to 100 people, so spots are on a first-come-first-served basis.

If you register and get a message that the event is “at capacity” (or just don’t want to be “in the audience”) there is still a way to enjoy the show, live and for free: at 7:30pm on May 7, go to our Facebook page  (https://www.facebook.com/truetheatre) and look for the live-stream and you’ll see how you can start watching . If you join us that way, consider creating a “watch party” when you do so your friends will know you’re watching and can join you! (And if you haven’t done so already, be sure to “Like” us on Facebook so you get a notification when we go Live!)

Both the Zoom event and Facebook live-feed should begin about 10 minutes prior to the show starting, so join in, sit back, and get ready for Cincinnati storytelling at its finest!

To try to register for the Zoom event and be “in the audience,” follow this link:


However you do it, thanks in advance for joining us this-coming Thursday! We’ve got 5 great tellers lined up for you to share their “fake”-themed story. The stories are true, it’s just the theme that’s “fakes”!

Although a different experience than attending a show in-person, we are grateful for a chance to actually be seen by friends, family, and followers around the world and to help create connections and good will between people, even during this period of self-isolation/stay-at-home orders/quarantines.

Until Thursday, be true!
–Dave & your friends at True Theatre
