No experience needed.


Performance: Stories of War
7:00pm - 8:30pm
Our Stories of War are told through monologues, poetry and dance. The Intrepid Museum transforms into a stage as veterans recount incredible moments of sacrifice, courage, triumph and loss. These stories are then realized in choreography.

The evening is an intimate experience where veterans will share experiences of war, service and coming home to embark on a positive search for a hopeful future.

Featuring stories, spoken word and dances by veteran artists.
