Orlando Story Club, a regular night of spoken word stories based on a common theme, is always a unique experience thanks to the fact that the storytellers are all randomly selected. But Orlando Story Club throws out the random element this week during a collaboration with the Central Florida Composers Forum (aka CF2). Each reader has been paired with a composer so that each story has its own soundtrack. The theme is “Joyland,” which could refer specifically to the long-defunct “amusement park” that rested on the shores of Lake Ivanhoe, or just generally to Orlando’s reputation as a hotbed of tourism. The stories and songs are performed live together for one night only, so don’t miss your chance to put a little more joy in your
life.
