Has anything ever happened to you that you felt was a “miracle”? 

SHINE, the popular storytelling series, is looking true stories of “Miracles”– whether of the “divine” or down-to-earth variety. These are unexpected, amazing events that possibly changed your life. Submission deadline is this Monday, November 30th.


The stories are for our show on Sunday, December 20 at 7pm at The Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica.
