The award-winning actor and a creator of Mom’s the Word, Deborah Williams is bringing the hit storytelling event, The Flame, to the Port Theatre.

The Flame is a storytelling series that features real people sharing their personal true stories in front of a live audience.

Since its inception in 2009, The Flame has flourished and grown into a wildly popular event that packs venues wherever it goes.

Storytelling workshop (for those interested) 2 days prior to event

(sold out) 


The Family Flame is the first all-ages edition of Vancouver’s hugely successful monthly storytelling event The Flame led by incredible storyteller Deborah Williams. At The Flame, stories must be true, they must be about you, and they must be told in a few (ten minutes or less). Though this project has popped up all over the Lower Mainland and beyond, this partnership with CTYP will bring storytelling joy to families and encourage cross-generational knowledge sharing.

After having spent two years unable to engage in person with our devoted communities, The Family Flame becomes a necessary hub for families of all kinds (biological and chosen) to be together.

No registration is required – swing by and join us for a day of fun for the whole family!

Lobby Doors open at 12PM after our BABY RAVE earlier that morning – head over to our CLUB CAROUSEL page to learn more!
