The art of storytelling is a craft as old as language itself. With such a long history, it shouldn't surprise anyone that there are great storytellers among us, even if nowadays most people opt for print and digital media to spin their yarns. Still, spoken word has its charm. That's why there's Story Story Night: to present live storytelling for those of us who prefer to hear our tales among friends and in real time.
Monday, March 25, attendees at the Rose Room will hear three storytellers divulge crazy, real-life happenings on the theme Metamorphosis: Stories of One Thing After Another. Afterward, audience members can drop their names in the hat to be called upon to share their own five-minute stories.
The reading will be the last show for Story Story Night's fall-winter 2012-2013 season, giving aspiring storytellers a final opportunity to present stories before the summer hiatus. If you're interested in sharing, be sure to follow the rules of Story Story Night: stories should be true, told without notes, topical, have a progression from beginning to end, and run less than five minutes.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and stories begin at 7 p.m. All are welcome to celebrate the end of the season at the after-party, hosted at the Red Feather Lounge and Bittercreek Ale House, where ticket holders can look forward to themed drink specials and the opportunity to continue the Story Story party long into the night.
