The Full Moon Story Slam gathers friends together to share true stories from their lives and to take part in a competition based on the art of storytelling. (But it's more of a fun competition than a fierce one!)
Tonight's show is a very special "theme-free" event! Come tell your favorite story - doesn't matter what it's about - tell the one that kills at cocktail parties, the one that brings a tear to your eye, or the story everyone asks to hear even though they've heard it 1000 times. The only limitations are that it's true and it's about you! (But we probably won't fault raconteurs who exaggerate just a little.)
Story slammers sign up on the night of the slam (or online before hand if they choose) to tell a 5-minute tale.
A panel of judges listens to each story along with the audience and gives a score that puts dual emphasis on content and performance. It encourages storytellers to focus on what they're saying and how they're saying it. Sometimes they are sad, sometimes they are funny but they are always entertaining.
Winners take home the coveted t-shirt and get to advance to our end of the year super slam!
If you don't want to compete but still want to tell a story there are opportunities to tell one-minute stories too!
