Murphy Felton | Central Lounge
These fun, interactive improv sessions in Central Lounge were so popular last year, we’re bringing them back this year. One Night Owl will be dedicated to fiction stories, another to nonfiction stories.
This year we are featuring two nights of Story Slams, an open-mic storytelling two-night event, where people tell true, personal stories or prepared, fictional stories! Put your name in the hat to tell a true story from your life or construct a fictional story. Come prepared or just come and listen! Storytellers are chosen at random (out of a hat) and get up to 5 minutes to tell their story. No notes allowed on this one, we want you to tell your story. Groups of audience members not telling a story will be asked to be our judges and there will be a Story Slam champion for each night! Great way to take your storytelling to the next level or even have a captive audience and instant feedback for that story you’ve been working on in a fun and unique way.
