At 7 p.m. Sunday, July 7, in the parlor of the St. Paul’s Parish House, one of the historic homes on Mansion Row in New Albany, St. Paul’s Arts Council presents “Parlor Stories: The American Spirit.”

The series is inspired by Stories on Stage in Denver, Arts & Letters Live in Dallas and Selected Shorts in New York City. There is a theme to each Parlor Story performance. Several stories are presented around each theme. The stories are sometimes classic, sometimes new; performed by great actors or story-tellers from the area who bring these short stories to life.
The theme for this performance is “The American Spirit.” The performance starts at 7 p.m. and includes an intermission with refreshments. There are no advance ticket sales but donations will be accepted at the door with proceeds going to renovate this historic building.
