Write Out Loud – an organization with a commitment to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading short stories aloud for a live audience to continue their 16th Season of Story Concerts with “SCI-FI What Else Might There Be?” At 7 p.m., Monday, April 10 at the Old Town Theatre, located at 4040 Twiggs Street in Old Town San Diego. Write Out Loud Story Concerts bring literature to life – aloud – with rehearsed readings by professional actors. Each program explores specific themes by weaving a variety of stories, poems, and sometimes music, together into a literary tapestry. Performers for this concert include Megan Carmitchel, Steven Lone, Brian Mackey, Walter Ritter and Rachael VanWormer.

Write Out Loud Associate Artistic Director Rachael VanWormer, shared “The brilliance of science fiction is that it perpetually asks us to consider possibilities outside and beyond what we are and what we know, while – at the exact same time – asking us to reflect on and examine what we currently are and currently know. Is the proposed alternative better or worse? That answer may vary, but the question is always worth asking.”

Stories to be presented, include:

  • “Cain” (excerpt) by Lord Byron Read by Rachael VanWormer
  • “The Wretched and the Beautiful” by E Lily Yu Read by Rachael VanWormer
  • “The Miniature Wife” by Manuel Gonzales Read by Steven Lone
