Namron Players launched the YourStory Project in the fall of 2019. The project consists of a series of story-telling workshops encompassing different ways to tell your story. The workshops also provided input for the docu-drama Lunch Box scheduled for June 4-6
The generous support of The Norman Arts Council, The Oklahoma Arts Council & The National Endowment for the Arts, and Republic Bank and Trust has made this project possible.
