Season 5 Has Arrived. Become an Oral Fixation member today! We’ll raise a glass to you and toast the new season at a members only reception before “Push the Envelope!”

Dear Friends,

This is my absolute favorite time of year at Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Life Tales)! We’re three short weeks away from our Season 5 premiere, and though our work is coming fast and furious, it’s also taking shape with stories and storytellers who will blow you away. This is going to be our best year yet — but we need your help! Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the future of storytelling in Dallas today.


At our recent Season 4 wrap party, more than one storyteller clasped my hands and with tears in their eyes confided, “Oral Fixation has changed my life!”  And they’re not the only ones.  After every show, I’ve been humbled by audience members sharing with me a similar sentiment. It delights me to know we are fulfilling our mission of bringing together the community through sharing true, personal stories.  And I’m inviting you to be a more involved part of our community.
