Solo Speak Presents – Everyone Has A Story

The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) & Grocery Outlet of Tillamook are pleased to present the special presentation of the one night only engagement of Solo Speak – “Everyone Has A Story”.  The art of storytelling can bring groups together, can bring understanding to people from different backgrounds and beliefs, can share pain, joy and laughter to let us know we are not alone.  The power of the story is real.

This one night only show of grown-up personal stories for grown-ups showcases Shay Knorr, Doral Vance and Rodney Dahl.

Shay Knorr filled in for a sick friend in a play at just 10 years old.  There was one line, the audience laughed, and she has been on stage ever since.  She has performed with many theatre companies and improv groups, commercials, TV, radio, and videos both in Portland and Los Angelas.  For 30 years, Shay was a commercial producer, director, playwright and is now a personal story performer and coach through her story telling group Solo Speak.

Doral Vance began performing in musical theater in Portland, which included working on several shows with the Mark Allen Players, Portland Parks productions in Washington Park Amphitheater, and in the 1975 Portland Company of HAIR. During her time at MHCC, she also performed in dramas and comedies, and was wardrobe manager for several plays. She performed previously at TAPA in BEER FOR BREAKFAST and earlier this year in THE GIN GAME. Her interest in music provided the opportunity to play in many bands, including the current band “N.E. Daynow” with Rodney Dahl and Tim Croman.

Rodney Dahl began performing in theater in Bend, Oregon, appearing in numerous theatrical productions at CTC, and Second Street, several commercials on TV and radio, and as an actor portraying various “rascals” on the Crooked River Dinner Train for 7 years, where he also sang and played guitar. He has been in several plays at NCRD and TAPA, including SUITEHEARTS, BEER FOR BREAKFAST and earlier this year in THE GIN GAME, since moving to Rockaway Beach. He and his partner, Doral Vance, along with Tim Croman play in the band “N.E. Daynow,” covering an eclectic mix of Pop, Rock, Blues, Jazz and Country.
