‘The Telling Project’ aims to establish connections for veterans, community

By Dragons Eye

The Telling Project is a way for families and communities to gain a better understanding of their military veterans.

Saturday, Nov. 10, 7:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH— Chandler Center for the Arts welcomes “The Telling Project,” Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

Since 2008, “The Telling Project” has worked to deepen understanding between military veterans, their families, and their civilian friends and neighbors. The project turns stories of military service into a stage play, through which veterans and their family members enact their very own stories before a live theater audience. The Chandler production features nine of our neighbors sharing their personal narratives, spanning the years from the Vietnam War to the present-day conflicts in the Middle East. This powerful work provides veterans with an opportunity to engage with the community in deeply meaningful ways, breaking down barriers to mutual understanding and acceptance along the way.

Chandler Center is located at 71 North Main St., Randolph. Reserved seating is $25 for adults (buy one get one free); $28 the day of the show. Students and veterans are $10 per ticket. Purchase tickets or get more information at 802-728-6464 or chandler-arts.org.
