Storytelling Date Night for Parents

Date Night in Fairfax for Parents

Local Storytelling Group Offers Childcare for its May Show


In honor of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we suggest parents take a night off!  For its May show, “The Mamas and the Papas: stories about moms, dads, and kids,” Better Said Than Done is offering a night of true, personal stories ranging from hilarious to poignant AND making childcare available for an easy and entertaining date night.  The show will be Saturday, May 30, 2015, at 7:00 PM, downstairs at The Auld Shebeen, 3971 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, Virginia.  Doors open at 6:00 PM and tickets are $10 per person; tickets can be purchased online at www.bettersaidthandone.com or at the door.  A full dinner and bar menu will be available; seating is first come, first served.  (This show is intended for adults.)  Childcare must be reserved in advance, by May 25, 2015.  To make reservations or for more information about the show, visit www.bettersaidthandone.com.



Parents can enjoy a great night out — without their kids — to see true, personal stories performed on stage by Better Said Than Done’s experienced storytellers, rather than reading them from a storybook to their kids.  Childcare will be provided for children from age 3 months to 12 years by a CPR-trained professional daycare provider — the very same one who cares for the little one of Jessica Piscitelli Robinson, Better Said Than Done’s Founder — in a rented facility just a 4-minute drive from The Auld Shebeen.  (Location will be provided after childcare reservation has been completed; additional childcare professionals will be provided if needed based on the number of children attending.)  Childcare will be available the night of the show, May 30, 2015, from 6:15 PM to 9:30 PM and costs $30 for the first child and $15 per additional child from the same family (pizza will be available for the kids at no extra cost).  Reservations for childcare must be made by 5 PM on May 25, 2015.



Of course, you don’t have to be a parent to enjoy the engaging stories featured in “The Mamas and the Papas,” hosted by Kathy Baird, and including storytellers Ann Cavazos, Dustin Fisher, Derek Hills, Alison Hughes, Mike Kane, Colleen Pellar, and Cathy Smith.

Better Said Than Done defines storytelling as the art of performing a true, personal story in front of a live audience. Our stories are personal. Each storyteller writes about his or her own experiences. They are true, though, like every good story, they sometimes come with enhanced details. And they are a story, meaning they have a beginning, middle, and end.  Most importantly, storytelling is a performance, an art, a form of entertainment, and, from our mouths, a reality the audience will not forget.  Better Said Than Done, Inc., was launched in May 2011, by Jessica Piscitelli, to bring the art of storytelling to Northern Virginia.  For more information on upcoming shows, performers, or workshops, please visit www.bettersaidthandone.com.
