Full Moon Story Slam – Never More!

October 21, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Theme: Never More! 

The Full Moon Stories Continue!
Storytellers and audiences are enjoying The Actors Studio of Newburyport’s (TASN) eighth season of true-life stories told without notes or props on themes ranging from synchronicity to pronouns. TASN’s Full Moon Story Slam is modeled after NPR’s Moth Radio Hour. It is a story telling competition with a few simple criteria for both the official judges and the audience to vote for their favorites.
The Full Moon Story Slam has been a consistently popular event since its inception, so much so that, during Covid restrictions, it expanded nationwide as a Zoom event.
The Slam is our chance to gather as friends 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: “Never More!
Criteria for judging:

  • The story has an arc: a beginning, a point of change, and a resolution.
  • Presentation of the story.
  • Time (no longer than five minutes, but no shorter than four minutes).
  • 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.
If you know that you would like to tell a story, you can let us know by email at up until noon on October 21, 2023, If you are not sure yet, you will have the opportunity to sign up during the event.
