Fish Tales: Are We Having Fun Yet?

Real Stories Told Live* (*well, recorded live)

A local storytelling program developed by the Gloucester Writers Center (GWC), because at heart every writer is a storyteller. In fact, we are all storytellers. Each day we tell stories about where we’ve been, what we’ve seen, and who we’ve talked to – all with additional color and flare, seriousness and humor, love and affection.

Fish Tales has grown from a cozy storytelling evening at the GWC to a happening weekend night event every other month, showcasing real people, telling true stories from the heart. Our storytellers are vulnerable, ready to share, funny and honest, and our enthusiastic audience reminds us that it is a joy and privilege to sit and listen to someone else’s life for a while.

Click WATCH ONLINE to reserve your ticket and then, on August 13th a video link and password will be emailed to you. Your ticket will have a date on it, but you will have access to watch at any time from Aug 14th – Aug 23rd.

How do I watch online? 

You can watch the video via several platforms. Here are specific instructions and links to helpful Vimeo articles. You will receive a link via email by Thursday, August 13th. Check spam or email info@gloucesterstage.com if you don’t receive this confirmation.

Watch via your computer’s web browser:

  • Follow the link that was sent to you in your email.
  • Enter the password when prompted.

Watch via your Phone (on an app or the browser):

It doesn’t matter if you have the Vimeo app.

  • Follow the link that was sent to you in your email.
  • Enter the password when prompted.

Watch via your TV streaming device:

This article in Vimeo’s help section will let you know what TV streaming devices have Vimeo apps.

There is a multi-step process for watching a password-protected video using a Vimeo app on a TV streaming device. The first part can be done on a web browser or a phone app.

Web Browser, iPad, or iPhone:

 

  • Go to http://vimeo.com and create a Vimeo account. If you already have one, log in.
  • Go back to your email and follow the link that was provided in your email.
  • Enter the password when prompted. You will then have access to the video.
  • In the upper right hand corner of the video screen you will see a heart icon and a clock icon. Click the clock icon. This adds the video to your “Watch Later” list.
  • Note: On an iPhone there are three dots just below the lower right hand side of the video screen and if you click those you will see a “Watch Later”. Select that and you will see a notification that you have saved it to your watch list.

 

First, install the Vimeo app on your TV Streaming Device. Then, go to your TV app:

Open the Vimeo App on your Smart TV or Streaming Device.

  • Log in using the same account that you used to save the video to your “Watch Later” list. You should see the video saved there and now available to be played. If you are already logged into your account on your AppleTV or Roku when you add the video to your “Watch Later” list, it may not appear on your list on your TV until you logout and log back in, again (this is what happened to us).
  • The Vimeo app for AppleTV’s has been fixed!

 

Watching the video on your Apple TV using Airplay:

From the Vimeo website: “With your device connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV, start playing a video and tap the AirPlay icon in the lower right-hand corner of the player. Just like that, your selected video will begin playing on your TV.”

(Watching) Casting a Video on a Chromecast:

From the Vimeo website: “With your device connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your Chromecast, start playing a video and tap the Chromecast icon in the lower right-hand corner of the player. In mere moments, your selected video will begin playing on your TV. You can continue browsing Vimeo on your device while your video plays, and control playback on your TV using the Chromecast controls at the bottom of the app.”

Casey Breton lives with her husband and three sons in Gloucester. While at home, she divides her time between picking their things up off the floor and putting them where they belong. These days, Casey relies on biking, walking in the woods, and strolling on the beach to maintain sanity. She sorely misses the pool at the Cape Ann YMCA. She regrets not being more productive in the yard and wonders if popcorn makes a legitimate meal. (What if it’s popped in virgin coconut oil and served with a glass of milk?) As an employee at Common Crow Market, she is now classified as “essential” — a first in her professional life. She tries not to let it get to her head.
