Oral Fixation: An Obsession with True Life Tales
© The Flash List
2403 Flora St. |
A woman’s hilarious account of the surprises related to giving birth, a father’s emotional tale of a risky delivery, along with Jay Jerrier’s culinary journey to becoming the “Pope of Pizza” … these intriguing true-life tales were all part of “Bun in the Oven,” the season three opening performance of Oral Fixation’s storytelling series which takes place in Hamon Hall at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.
From “heartwarming to hilarious,” the series features personal stories that each correspond with a particular theme. Oral Fixation's creator and TEDxSMU speaker Nicole Stewart is a fifth generation Dallasite with a deeply-rooted love of the city and the arts (her grandparents Juanita and Henry S. Miller, Jr. founded The Dallas Opera and contributed to the creation of the Dallas Theater Center and the Dallas Symphony). Nicole is acutely aware of the healing properties associated with sharing one’s struggles and triumphs as well as the benefits of being drawn into the unique experiences of others.
If you love to hear real-life stories …
Pick a theme that interests you, and purchase tickets online. You may buy tickets at the door as well, but since this local event is quickly becoming increasingly popular, advanced arrangements are strongly suggested.
If you have a great story to share …
Oral Fixation takes story submissions on a continuous basis. You don't have to be a professional writer or performer to be cast in one of the shows. Previous acting experience is not required; you simply read your own story off a piece of paper (with editing/refining assistance and performance coaching readily available when necessary).
