Stories to be shared at ‘Shots in the Dark’

Students in Nancy McDonald’s How to Tell Your Story class offered through Lakewood Theatre Company will present “Shots in the Dark” Monday at 7:30 p.m.

“Shots in the Dark” is a free performance open to the public that takes place around a kitchen table that just happens to be at the front of the Lakewood stage, reminding us of a time when people shared the deep thoughts and feelings they experienced in their lives as stories,” said McDonald, a West Linn resident and actor.

“These are stories that will warm the autumn chill and spur the audience to remember and share their own stories.”

Students Nancy Dunis, Norbert Murray, Harriet Walker and Melissa Coe will be telling their stories on stage.
