Geoffrey Berwind-The Power of Story
The Power of Story
Geoffrey Berwind is a story teller. His skill is well honed over years of running a theatre in the Philadelphia suburbs called Celebration Theatre. That catapulted him into becoming the director of a story series called Historic Philadelphia, Inc. created under Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell. It was a joint project with the National Park Service that provided historically based stories for people visiting Philadelphia’s historic sites.
I didn’t know what the heck I was doing,
I feel bankrupt.
Not only financially but of hope.
“I believe in you. You’re so talented.
You can do anything you want.
But God can’t drive a parked car.”
That moment of compassion was the turning point for Geoffrey. He poured his energy into the historic series, not knowing what the future might hold. But the future had an incredible ride planned out for this business man turned story teller. Come listen in.
Geoffrey Berwind: The Power of Story
“I had just a divine inspiration, maybe because it just came to me out of nowhere, start a theater.”
“I called it Celebration Theater.”
“We did unusual things. Like we took over a working train station for one of our shows.”
“I saw and witnessed the power of the arts to bring people together.”
“I believe that this magnificent word, called imagination, is sort of like a muscle somewhere in us.”
“By the way, telling your stories is fun. So go have fun.”
