Storycatchers Live!

with Tara Pohlkotte

Friday, April 28, 2017

7:30 PM – 9:45 PM

Backstage at The Meyer Theatre, 117 South Washington Street, Green Bay, WI 54301

Join us for a live storytelling event where members of the community become storytellers sharing (mostly) true stories, surrounding the theme: ‘Road Trips.' You DO NOT need to tell a story to join in the fun! After all, a story isn’t a story without someone to tell it to.

We want your road warrior, weekend getaway gone wrong, best and worst moments of setting out from home and out into the world. All stories must be (mostly) true and be told within 5 minutes but the rest, including format and style are up to you!  Story submissions or any questions can be sent to tara@storycatcherscommunity.com

This is a community live storytelling event where 10 to 15 community storytellers take to the stage to share personal stories around a given topic.  Adding to the fun, the night of the event a few names are drawn to share a story as well.  Storycatchers Live events are just as much about the listeners as they are the tellers. The space that's created at these events is truly magic. This event is free and open to the public.
