VAMP themes are the butter to our bread, the Cher to our Sonny, the Barack to our Biden.
We toiled endlessly. We laughed, we cried. We consumed endless cans of La Croix. But we’ve done it! We have finally come up with our VAMP storytelling showcase themes for 2016. Behold:

And, if you love VAMP, please consider donating as a part of our annual year-end fundraiser. So Say We All could not exist without your help, in both financial support and your tireless support as an audience member, a volunteer, an advocate (i.e. that person who tells her coworkers the next day about the killer storytelling thing they missed) or as a performer yourself.
We are here to help you tell your stories, and to help you tell them well. Throughout 2016, we’ll have many opportunities to help you develop your stories. The month before each theme’s submission deadline, there’ll be a Greenroom writing workshop catering to the theme, where you can start writing your story, as well as a Long Story Short with a complementary theme, where you can test the waters and try out a portion of your story.
We love you, and we can’t wait to see you at these shows and, better yet, hear your stories. Write us a little something. Tell us a story, won’t you?
