Lost. Found. What lies in between? What is found after something is lost can be almost better than the original. This is the concept that is inspiring a night of storytelling through “Truth Be Told” Boulder’s bi-monthly story slam. Everybody has a story and this is the chance to share it. After a hugely outstanding inaugural year of story slams “Truth Be Told” is ready to hit the ground talking with a second year! And, you just may be one of the chosen ones to share your story!
Here is how it works. You are given a theme. You tell a story on that theme. You get five minutes to tell a story on that theme. It must be true and performed by heart. No cheat sheets, no comedy routines. Just a heartfelt, honest story. To share your story you put your name in a hat. If it is selected then you mosey up to the microphone and charm the pants off the audience! They, in turn, will be given a voting ballot with various categories on it. The audience will vote on Most Humorous, Most Poignant, Outstanding Storytelling Skills, and Best Overall Story. The winner then will be invited to tell a story in the 2nd annual Grand Slam, which will take place in February 2015.
Held at Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place, the theme is Lost and Found. What have you lost and what have you found in its place? There are also featured storytellers. This month are journalist Mark Collins, theater artist Joan Bruemmer-Holden, and Truth Be Told's 2013 Grand Slam Champion, Katherine Millersdaughter.
Hosted by Johanna Walker and Nina Rolle, who bring songs and stories to the stage to round out the night. This event will most likely sell out. So get your tickets early and share your words on April 27! If you don’t reserve your ticket now you may lose something that you won’t be able to find until the next “Truth Be Told”!
