Unheard LA’s will be back for our fourth season soon. You can see our past lineup of shows and salons below. Stay on top of everything we’re bringing you next season by signing up for our newsletter.
Check out a live storytelling show
Discover more about Los Angeles and the folks who call it home with Unheard LA as your guide. This live, community-driven storytelling series takes place at theaters around the greater Los Angeles area. Each show is free, unique, and features a curated lineup of real people sharing true stories of life here in Southern California.
You won’t be going on this journey alone. Theater artist and Watts native Bruce A. Lemon, Jr. will be your Unheard LA host, helping to connect each story, storyteller, and show venue along the way.
Stick around afterward for a postshow mixer to meet the storytellers, mingle with others, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and be inspired by your fellow Angelenos.
To be announced soon.
Share your story
When we say Unheard LA is community driven, we mean that the stories come from community members like you. In fact, we want to specifically hear from YOU. Some Unheard LA folks are seasoned storytellers. Many aren’t. Some have never done any kind of public speaking before. Not to worry, we’re here to work with you; we’ll help you develop your story so that you can sound your best.
Your story doesn’t have to be a Hollywood epic; we want to hear them all. Past stories have ranged from favorite neighborhood dive bars and helping someone to finish a marathon, to arm wrestling celebrities and celebrating birthdays on “Gilligan’s Island.” We just ask that it be genuine and something you personally experienced in Southern California.
Regardless of your experience, we need YOUR stories and personal narratives to make Unheard LA happen! Share yours.
Not sure yet?
Let’s figure it out together by joining us for an Unheard LA salon, where you can meet Unheard LA producers and past storytellers to help you develop your story idea. Check out available dates and venues for our salons below. You can also watch (or binge through) stories from our past shows.
And if you still have questions, you can email us at email@example.com.
We know that for many folks stepping onstage and into the spotlight can feel pretty intimidating. That’s why we're coming to neighborhoods around the region for a set of story salons: Past Unheard LA storytellers join KPCC In Person producers – and you – to share the stories they read (or sang or performed) as part of the show and to answer your questions. Next up: KPCC's Crawford Family Forum on March 17. More details here.More Information
