“There is no greater burden than carrying an untold story.” — Maya Angelou
Each month, we supply a theme on which stories are based. Invited tellers prepare five- to six-minutes stories. We also invite audience members who are interested in telling a two- to three-minute story on our theme to drop their name in a hat. If chosen, they’ll tell their tale. We occasionally partner with community organizations which provide some of our featured tellers. Other tellers are welcome to tell any story related to our monthly theme.
Doors open at 6pm
Storytelling starts at 6:30pm
Acton Coffee provides beverages and snacks until 6:30pm. Order them downstairs and bring them up for the show.
Sunday, April 23: “Promise”
Our evening will include featured storytellers — Moth and Massmouth SLAM winners — in addition to local, first-time tellers.
We are always on the hunt for local, often first-time tellers. If you are interested in being one of our featured local tellers email David.
DINING OFFER: True West Brewery offers 10% off food on the night of our performances if you order your tickets online. Just show them a digital or printed receipt of your purchase to receive your discount.
