Expresso Yourself @ the Historic Meetinghouse September 28

Expresso Yourself @ the Historic Meetinghouse September 28

After taking the summer off, Expresso Yourself is coming back to Medfield with a new name, a new schedule, and a new format. The name is now Expresso Yourself @ the Historic Meetinghouse. And Expresso will start with a community dinner.
On September 28, Expresso Yourself will have the Backyard Chef serving up a mouth-watering barbeque dinner with all the fixings. The spoken word feature is Thea Iberall and the music feature is the Millis Berfield Band. The theme will be “Good times, good friends.”
The Millis-Berfield Band features three talented and fun performers with a diverse music list of covers and originals. "Uplifting and thoughtful songs; wicked tight harmonies. You'll love them." "A refreshing blend of originals and folk-rock classics, performed with gusto but without bombast. Their whole is more than the sum of its parts; their harmonies are a treat!"
Storyteller Thea Iberall has been called a shimmering bridge between heart and mind. StorySpace said, “Thea is the dream house at the four-way intersection of storytelling, poetry, science and spirit…she breathes grace into every evocative piece that leaps to life from her heart and mind to yours."
Doors open at 5:30pm. Dinner is at 6:00pm. The show starts at 7:00pm. Open mic performers have 6 minutes to share. Original or non-original poetry, stories, performance art, music or songs welcome. Sticking to theme encouraged. Teens and adults welcome. Dinner and show for $20 (children prices less) Tickets available at https://expressoyourself.bpt.me. All proceeds go to maintaining the historic meetinghouse, a fixture in Medfield’s community. Sign up for open mic at theaiberall@yahoo.com.

First Parish people say:

This past November, I watched a video online of a TED talk. This TED talk, given by Ash Beckham, was about coming out of the closet. In the opening of the talk, Beckham explains that the experience of coming out of the closet is not limited to the GLBTQ community, but rather, she suggests, that we all have closets, and that “all a closet is, is a hard conversation.” This definitely struck a chord with me.
