the project

We are Sacramento’s award-winning, nonprofit literary performance series where the work of today's best authors is performed with theatrical flair by professional actors. Designated by Sactown Magazine as Best of the City 2019, we are going into our 14th season in 2023 and will continue to bring the Sacramento region unforgettable evenings of prose performed live!

why we're doing it

Valerie Fioravanti created our reading series in early 2010 as a way to inspire and connect writers in the Sacramento region—and, boy, did it! Now, more than a decade later, Stories on Stage Sacramento is one of the region's premier literary events, bringing together countless local writers, readers, and performers to celebrate the work they love and live. It has even inspired a sister series across the causeway, Stories on Stage Davis.
