ABOUT KEVIN CONNORS

Kevin Connors is the Executive Artistic Director of Music Theatre of Connecticut

“As a director, I strive to tell the story in the most creative, clear, sensitive and impactful way. I want the audience to connect with the characters in an emotional way so they become irrevocably invested in the journey. I always create a safe space for actors in which to craft the story.

WHY STORYTELLING AND THE BAT?

Besides the obvious acronym, bats have a highly sophisticated form of communication. They emit sound waves that are reflected back to them through a process named echolocation.

Storytelling can be considered a form of echolocation – we share our stories and learn about ourselves and others through the “echo” of telling, listening and discussing stories and receiving feedback.

Storytelling is a great wintertime activity that’s fun! Try your hand at expressing yourself through the oral tradition of storytelling. Receive help if you wish or just come to listen to the stories of others. Gain insights about the story creating process and how it brings positive energy to the “Zoom Room.” Zoom link posted above.
