The June storytelling theme is “Show and Tell,” meaning participants will be welcome to literally show the audience an item—maybe even a body part (but please, no nudity) — and tell the tale behind it.
Need suggestions on what to show? Take a stroll through your home, or a scroll through your phone, until you find that thing that delivers an acute emotional response, or maybe surfaces a memory you think others would delight in hearing.
Here’s a tip on what not to bring, and I know this from experience: the photo album that graphically details your birth in slow sequential order, up to the main crowning event. I don’t know about this crowd, but it didn’t go over so well in kindergarten.
Sign-up starts at 6:30 p.m. and storytellers hit the stage at 7 p.m. Stories should not exceed seven minutes. Suggested donation at the door will be $5.
If interested in reserving a slot, please contact email@example.com with your name and a short summary of what you’d like to show and tell.
