A themed monthly storytelling show
True Stories will be live again, Wednesday, June 14 at Unscripted Theatre. Stories start at 8pm. Get there early to grab a seat and a bite and get your name in the fucket bucket for a chance to tell your own story.
In June our featured theme is “PETS,” and our featured teller will be Mimi Reilly, creatrix of Star Booty Hair Salon. (And yes, my hairdresser…what of it???)
Your mission, should you choose to take the fucket bucket by the balls, is to prepare a five-minute story about pets. Maybe you’re allergic to all things furry and your partner decided to run a rescue league. Or what about that rat that terrified your prize kitty? Maybe you grew up in a house with a really nasty turtle. Or maybe you know The Dog Whisperer… (If you do, we must talk!)
Bring your true, personal story to the stage, and tell it to us in five minutes. You will be judged, and the best story wins the night! (Note, this judging is by the same people who clap when Trish and I sing, so it’s not harsh ;). ) You might even get a video of your story put onto Creative Loafing’s website.
May 10 Show
JUNE 14: PETS
JULY 12: ARRESTED
AUG 9: VACATIONS
Every person in the audience has the chance to tell a story. Put your name in the fucket bucket, and if you’re called you get five minutes to tell your real-life story. No props. No notes. The audience picks the “best” story of the night. Random prizes will be awarded…Admission is FREE. But order something from the bar for gods’ sake. Each month one storyteller is featured. At the end of the night, the audience picks a completely scientific “best” story of the night.

Every month, Creative Loafing features a story from the show. Check back for the next show.
