October’s Theme:
TEACHER! TEACHER!

FEATURING PROMINENT FRONT RANGE TALENT

Dee Covington, a founding member of Denver’s Curious Theater Company and Henry Award winning actress will go up against acclaimed Boulder comedian Nancy Norton and Longmont’s Eryc Eyl, known to audiences as DJ SaviorBreath, in what has been called “the Olympiad of storytelling.”

In addition to the pre-selected storytellers, co-hosts Nina Rolle and Johanna Walker open up the competition to the audience, inviting all those who have prepared a five-minute, true life story to put their names in a hat with the hopes of being selected to tell it on stage.

The winner of each Truth Be Told story slam is invited back to tell another story at the 2nd annual All-Star Grand Slam, which, we are pleased to announce, will be held at eTown Hall on Feb 22, 2015.

Boulder performing artists Nina Rolle and Johanna Walker  co-produce and co-host this community arts series. Rolle is a voiceover actor and musician known locally for her original, award-winning show, ZEN CABARET: a contemplative burlesque. Walker, a teaching artist and public speaking coach, teaches the solo performance-making class, FEARLESS SOLOS: writing and performing your stories.

Between stories, Rolle and Walker perform song medleys and one-line stories based on the evening’s theme, creating a one-of-a-kind event that is equal parts story hour, competition, and cabaret. Musical guests this month are multi-instrumentalist Greg Laliberte of Ginga and Sharon Glassman, frequent Truth Be Told story contributor, and author of the comic novel Blame it on Hoboken.

Hi friends! We’re sorry to report that advance sale tickets are sold out for Sunday night’s slam. We’re really happy that there’s so much enthusiasm for the slam, but sorry we have to turn people away. Clearly we need a bigger space. (Boulder Theater, here we come!)

We will be releasing some SRO tickets on Friday morning so click here to grab yours.

If you’re not on our mailing list yet, add your name here so you don’t miss out on the next slam. Which, BTW, is APRIL 27…details coming soon.

Hope to see you on Sunday night!

Naughty or Nice questions!

Have you played nice this year? Done some things that got you in a little bit of trouble? Did you say “Oh, that would be a perfect story for the December story slam”? We want to hear it!

So go ahead…

Get naughty and skip that family obligation, bust out your nicest Ugly Sweater and come join us at Shine!

In case you can’t quite get your brain around the “Naughty or Nice” theme, we’ve got some questions to help stir the pot… (more…)
