The KSU Tellers are "offbeat"By Jarmea L. Boone
The KSU Tellers
The KSU Tellers was featured as an “Offbeat Student Organization” by Creative Loafing Atlanta in August. The KSU Tellers is a performing student organization within the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies at Kennesaw State University. Their stories are taken from the world of mythology, legend, folk tales, history and their own personal experiences. The Tellers perform frequently in Kennesaw and around the greater Atlanta area.
In the article, Staff Writer Asher Smith wrote, “The KSU Tellers are an experimental storytelling performance company that has toured internationally and regularly performs in the Atlanta area. Aside from being a fascinating extracurricular activity, participation in this group would provide optimal training for anyone planning to pursue a career as a Celtic druid.”
The 2009-10 KSU Tellers are Phillip Justman of Conyers, Ga., Mannie Rivers of Los Angeles, Calif., Andrew Crigler of Acworth, Ga., Rachel Dejulio of Syracuse, N.Y., Judy Newman of Fairfax, Va., Greg Garrison of Hinesville, Ga., Andrew Puckett of Kennesaw, Ga., Shauntea Murphy of Atlanta, Ga., Daniel Allen of Atlanta, Ga., and Trevor Goble of Alpharetta, Ga. Professor John Gentile and Assistant Professor Hannah Harvey are the founders of the organization.
The KSU SCRABBLE Club was also featured on the list.
