the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts
Fitchburg -- Massmouth Storytelling in Fitchburg presents a special Storytelling session at the Sheraton Four Points, Leominster, Friday, January 28, starting at 7. "We are invited to take part in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival hosted by Fitchburg State University," explains event producer Sally Cragin. "We look forward to hearing lots of new stories from community folks and visitors to the area."
"massmouth promotes the timeless art of storytelling through social media, education and live performance," explains massmouth director Norah Dooley. The format is fast-moving -- participants can select a "prompt," such as "my favorite food," "something I'll never do again," or "my worst date," or choose a topic of their own. Everyone has five minutes to tell a story. At the end of the evening, a jury of non-storytellers selects the best story. "You don't have to tell a story to enjoy massmouth Storytelling," says Cragin. "We welcome audience members. But those who tell a story will receive a card good for a free draft beer at the Boulder Cafe or a tea or coffee drink at Chaibo."
Next storytelling is at Design at 639, 639 Main Street, on Friday, February 18, 7 pm. Free.
