Story, Story Night is back for another season of locally told tales of adventure, challenge and creativity. This year founder Jessica Holmes is changing things up a bit with a new venue, the El Korah Shrine, 1118 W. Idaho St., Boise.
The season kicks off with “Starry, Story Night,” a fundraising event at 7 p.m. Oct. 27 at Boise Contemporary Theater, 854 Fulton St., Boise.
You’ll find a special lineup of featured Boise celebrity storytellers who will tell their tales of “Curiosity” and where it can lead you: The storytellers are Furby and Pleo inventor Caleb Chung (check out his TED Talk here); Conservationist Rick Johnson; Young adult fiction writer Kristiana Gregory; Songwriter and singer Phil Roy; Social entrepreneur and former Trey McIntyre Project dancer and managing director John Michael Schert.
Here’s the 2014-15 Story, Story Night season.
If you want to be a featured storyteller, pitch your idea at StoryStoryNight.org. You can still tell a story if you’re not featured. Just put your name in the hat at each event to be part of the story slam for each night. If you’re chosen you get five minutes to tell your true tale, and maybe win a prize.
