Story Lab begins new season

T or C Story Lab is about to start it’s 2023-24 season.

This inaugural kick off brings a very special RE-DUX edition with some crowd favorites from our previous two seasons.

ALWAYS FREE and open to the public. All are welcome.

El Cortez Theater

415 Main Street

Truth or Consequences, NM

Each Second Sunday

Six Storytellers

1-2 pm 


We warmly encourage storytellers for future Story Labs. Email for more details or to participate.


Our mission is to educate, inspire and build community through the artful craft of storytelling. We believe listening to stories widens our perspectives and helps us realize what we have in common; ultimately, our community becomes richer and stronger when we share our stories.

We hold monthly gatherings featuring stories by the community for the community. Our creative team curates six storytellers to provide an enriching, diverse, and professional experience for participants and audience alike. Storytellers are supported through educational material, practice sessions, and coaching. Follow us on Instagram or Facebook @TorCStoryLab or reach us at
