Central Jersey Story Slam
September 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10
Many voices. Real stories. Artfully told. The theme is “Sparks”. Start planning your story now. Who or what has created a spark for you? What did that lead to? Perhaps you remember a time when sparks flew, or some bright sparks ruined your day. All types of tales are welcome, as long as they are about the teller and true as recalled by the teller. And, take it from us: planning and preparation helps calm the nerves and improves the story! Whether you’re a teller or a listener, this night promises to be a lot of fun.
Doors open at 6:30, stories will begin at 7 p.m..
$10 entry on the door. Beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks provided
The format of the evening is based on The Moth story slams. Guests are invited to prepare a five-minute story on a pre-announced theme. The theme of this event will be “Sparks.” Guests do not have to prepare a story, but those that do put their names in a “hat.” Ten stories will be selected to be told during the evening. Story-tellers should tell their stories without notes or props. Stories should be true accounts from the teller’s life and should have a beginning, middle and end (not just an anecdote, not a stand-up routine, not an impromptu ramble).
The Moth story slams include judges in the audience who score the stories. Although we won’t be judging the stories, we’ll be polling the audience for the stories that were specially enjoyable, well-prepared, or super funny.
Entry is first-come-first-served on the night. No sign up this time around, just show up and pay $10 on the door. If you’re unwaged, pay what you can.
