Full Moon Story Slam – 20210206 – Second Chance

February 6 @ 2:00 pm

Full Moon Story Slam date: Saturday, February 6 at 7pm
Theme: Second Chance

Please note: Audience Members limit is 100, so be sure to sign up early

The next Full Moon Story Slam is our chance to gather as friends – virtually, of course – and share true stories from our lives. Simply put, a story slam is a competition based on the art of storytelling. It puts a dual emphasis on content and performance, encouraging storytellers to focus on what they’re saying and how they’re saying it. It is an exercise in crafting stories within a set time limit – and it is great entertainment! Story slammers will tell a 5-minute short story based on the evening’s theme: “Second Chance.”

If you know that you would like to tell a story, you can let us know by email at info@newburyportacting.org up until noon on February 6th.  If you are not sure yet, you will have the opportunity to sign up during the event. The competition will be on Saturday, February 6, at 7:00 P.M.

Pre-registration to be an audience member is also required.
Once signed up, you will be sent the Zoom link. Simply email info@newburyportacting.org
Criteria for judging will be the same as during a live slam.
• The story has an arc: a beginning, a point of change, and a resolution.
• Presentation of the story.

• Time (no longer than five minutes) and connection to the theme.

Please remember, the story must be true. The story must be yours. And you may not use props, notes or a written script.
