Storytelling @ Riley’s Pour House:
Weddings, Baseball, & Other May Rituals

May 25th, 2015

weddings (2)Who doesn’t have a baseball or a wedding story? We’ll find out when Storytelling at Riley’s returns Tuesday, May 26.

We’re currently taking advance signup for storytelling. If you have a story to share, we’d love to add you to our roster of storytellers. Send emails to:

the21stcenturyscop@yahoo.com

You can also leave a post on our Facebook event page.

Remember: Story Night @ Riley’s is an event for told stories — ones similar to those featured on The Moth Radio Hour. You might also want to check out some of the stories featured on our previous storytelling nights, many of which can be accessed here. You can also read a recap of our April session here.

Baseball and weddingsYour story should run between five and ten minutes. It should have a clear beginning, middle, and end. It should also have the kind of hook and payoff that typify the stories on Moth Radio. If you have a performance idea that doesn’t fit the above guidelines, please let us know in advance. Whatever you talk about, we ask that you respect the ten minute limit.

Riley’s is a family place that attracts a general audience, so the recommended language and content is TV-PG.

Story Night Trophy  compressedStories told at Riley’s do not automatically become part of our podcast series. If you grant us permission to consider your story for release as a podcast, we will inform you if your story is selected.

Please spread the word and be sure to bring along friends and fans. It definitely helps to have a cheering section.

We’ll gather at 7:00 (Riley’s has excellent food and a terrific bar). Stories begin at 8:00, end at 9:30.

Come out and help us grow this exciting venue for spoken-word performance. Who knows, your story might just be invited back for our years-end All Start Night and walk away with a giant trophy (just as Owne Kilbane and Stephanie Wytovich did last year).

Scop on!
