(Reposting the text of an email I sent earlier today. If you are in the Greater Boston area, or know people here, please pass it on!)

I will be co-hosting and emceeing a Folk and Fairytale Slam for adults on Thursday November 15th at 7pm at the Puppet Showplace Theater in Brookline Village.

Here is a link to all the information (including how to buy tickets): http://massmouth.ning.com/events/slamming-the-tradition-ii

Basically, people have 7 minutes to tell a story on the evening's theme - Feast and Famine - and then the audience picks the winner. There is also a featured teller who will perform for about 30 minutes.

It is a very fun night, and these are definitely not the stories you tell your kids! Here are links to the first and second place winners from last month ("Grimm and Twisted"), be warned, the first story is definitely dark and the second is quite funny:

"Based on The Robber Bridegroom"

"Red Riding Hood - From the mother's perspective"

Come be an audience member! (Tickets are a little cheaper when bought ahead of time)

or

Come put your name in the hat and tell a story! (Or submit a clip to be chosen ahead of time and get in free)

Also, we are looking for volunteers to sign people in, take tickets etc. If you want to volunteer, let me know, and you get in for free.

Hope to see you Thursday!
