EVENT HASHTAG: #FullCircleStories

THE PROMPT: ‘HAPPINESS IS...'

Happiness is finding a pencil/pizza with sausage/telling the time…
Happiness is learning to whistle/tying your shoes for the very first time…
Happiness is two kinds of ice cream/knowing a secret/climbing a tree…
Happiness is five different crayons/catching a firefly/setting him free…
Happiness is a warm gun.

While this unsettling “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”/Beatles mash-up gives us rather specific details about what “happiness is”, its true message lies in what happiness is not. Happiness is not the same to everyone. Join Wandering Aesthetics with emcee Drew Louis (Actor with Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. • Senior at Hudson High School (Ohio)) to share stories about what “Happiness Is…” for each of us.

Registration is encouraged (especially for storytellers), but not required. To register or for more information, please email benjamin@akronist.com or visit www.watheatre.com/FullCircle.
