Tickets: $20 on-line and $25 at the door
massmouth Story Slams have exploded in popularity and our 2011-12 season took place in Somerville, Cambridge, Jamaica Plain, Quincy and as far away as Lowell and Worcester. Many times people were turned away at the door because of overflow. It’s clear, we are here to stay and growing!
massmouth slams attracted seasoned professionals and fledgling storytellers alike sharing their experiences and revealing their insights on themes like:
emergency***supernatural***stupid-cupid***resolution***wheels***obsession*** shell-shocked home***cupid***genesis***idols***gifts***pranked***college dayz
At each slam contestants who are storytellers and lawyers, medical students, homeschooling moms, journalists, grad students, artists and professional storytellers shared real life stories and competed for a place in the semifinals. The winners of those contests will perform here as they compete for the grand prize- a week in a medieval Tuscan townhouse, yes that’s Tuscany, Italy!
Tickets are $20 on line and $25 at the door. All proceeds benefit the StoriesLive® High School Scholarship Story Slam. Last year storytellers from massmouth,inc. taught 1,100 high school students to tell their personal stories and distributed over $5000 in prizes.
There are more prizes for the winners chosen by the distinguished judges. In addition there will be one Audience Choice winner voted in by the crowd at end of the evening, so you get to vote!
In between sets of judged stories, the audience can participate in a mini-slam of stories on the theme – “wrong turn” at the final slam of the season.
