Pearls of Wisdom - Storyteller Auditions

Saturday, August 26, 2017 9:00 am — 12:00 pm



What Is Your Personal Story Relating to the Value of Parenthood or Mentorship?

Compassion Pregnancy Center is hosting its 3rd Annual Pearls of Wisdom Fundraiser which gives parenthood- in all of its forms- a voice!  The event offers men and women a platform to tell the story of their journey through life as a parent, mentor or outside observer from behind a microphone, and in front of a LIVE audience.  As a mother or father, son or daughter, foster parent, aunt or uncle, grandparent or just best friend, here is your opportunity to showcase your tale about the wisdom, humor, love or loss you have experienced.  

Compassion Pregnancy Center is a pro-life faith-based ministry. Each year, hundreds of women and men come through our doors for free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, options counseling, post-abortive healing, peer counseling and many material good items needed to care for a baby. 

Do you have an inspirational story that you would like to share with others in an effort to help raise vital funds for this ministry?  Please consider auditioning for one of the 10 storyteller positions for this year's event.  You can select the time slot of your choice from 2 available audition dates. 

Audition dates for Pearls of Wisdom storytellers are:

Saturday, August 12th & Saturday, August 26th from 9:00 AM- 12:00 PM at Compassion Pregnancy Center (address below)

***We ask that each storyteller's script be around 5 to 8 minutes long in length (memorization not required), and that he or she bring a typed copy of the story to hand to our panel.  Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before your audition time to get signed-in and prepared to read your speech to the selection committee. Please enter through the front office door and someone will be there to direct you where to go.  The finalists who are selected to speak at the event will be asked for a short bio and head shot for our event program.

The official Pearls of Wisdom fundraising event will take place on Sunday, October 8th at 3pm at the newly renovated Emerald Theatre in downtown Mount Clemens.
