Massmouth will hold its first Club Passim Story Slam of the 2017-2018 season on Oct. 16 and the appropriate theme for the evening will be “SPOOKED.” Bring your best true spooky tales to legendary Club Passim for an evening of engaging entertainment and dinner and drinks if you choose.
What is a Story Slam?
A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Story slammers sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute short story on the evening’s theme. Ten names are drawn at random from a box. A team of 5 volunteer judges – interested amateurs, storytellers, theater people and members of the audience who love stories – evaluate how well each story is told, how well it is constructed, how well the story explores, connects and/or reveals some truth about the theme, and how well it honors the time limit. The top-scorer is awarded a prize and this winner, the runner-up and the audience-selected favorite all earn an opportunity to compete to perform at the “BigMouthOff” at the end of the slam season in the spring.
The Massmouth Story Slam: “Spooked” takes place at Club Passim on October 16. Showtime 7 PM. Tickets $10/$5 (members)
