Based on a True Story

Touring Performance • Theater

We often think of stories as being works of fiction. Based On A True Story is an interactive celebration of non-fiction stories that are just as empowering and exciting as imagined adventures.  Jeremy Schaefer performs true and uplifting stories from his childhood that hit on themes that are relatable to today’s young people.

Between Jeremy’s narratives, students are encouraged to share stories from their own lives and guided through the process of crafting a non-fiction story with a beginning, middle, and end.  Not only do students learn the different between fiction and non-fiction, but they receive a healthy reminder that they are all heroes in their own life stories.
