Bored with the ballet, opera and symphony?

We’ve found one local production that’ll keep you wide awake in your AT&T Performing Arts Center seat.

Bravo to Oral Fixation, the storytelling series that offers local residents the opportunity to take the stage with their true-life tales.

Started two years ago by native Dallasite and former L.A. actress Nicole Stewart, the monthly show--which runs September through May--features everyday people telling resonant true stories from a simply adorned stage: a stool, a music stand and a spotlight. Each story lasts about 10 minutes.

Every month, Stewart and her artistic director wade through upwards of 30 submissions and choose seven for the next show. In October, Stewart herself told an incredibly poignant story about a personal loss in a performance called Bun in the Oven.

This month’s installment, Elephant in the Room, is already sold out, but you can still nab tickets ($25) to the April 14 or May 5 show.

Think you have an amazing story of your own to tell? Submissions for the April 14 performance are due by March 21.
