Perhaps no finer venue exists for the professional storyteller/writer than the story slam, and so it is with great pleasure I say that I have been chosen to be a featured storyteller for the June 24 Truth Be Told story slam event at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder! While I’ve been on the TBT stage a few times in recent years, this is the first time I’ve been chosen as a special guest, and I’m tickled pink. Or I’m just blushing with nerves. Maybe both!
For those of you who aren’t familiar, Truth Be Told is competitive storytelling. In addition to the three featured storytellers, seven participants will be drawn out of the hat passed at the beginning of the evening, and all will get five minutes on stage to tell a true story, no notes, based on the evening’s theme. June’s theme is PITCH. The audience scores each storyteller, and the winner moves on at the end of the year to the TBT Grand Slam event.
Here are the TBT emcees, Johanna and Nina, who entertain between stories with their own tales, music and jokes.
Tickets are $15/person, so come one, come all! Be a friendly face in the crowd for my story, or put your name in to tell one of your own. TBT shows are always a helluva good time. Hope to see you there.
