Sedona Awakening stories performed with improvisational theater
Almost everyone in Sedona has an amazing story about how they got here. At 7 p.m. on Wednesday in the Si Birch room of the Sedona Library, some of these stories will be enacted using improvisational theater.

The result is the book "Sedona Awakenings: Amazing True Stories." Marjorie Timms thought the stories would be perfect to bring to life using her improvisational theater method called "Mindful Improvisation."
