All storytellers for "Ghost Stories" will be accepted at the event. See you on October 28th!
Want to tell your story? Here's what to do:
1. Check out our upcoming events and spend some time thinking about which of your stories fits the theme. Stories can be both funny and poignant, but remember that Stories on Tap is not standup comedy, and that all good stories have a conflict and a resolution. Stories must be true and approximately five minutes in length.
2. Make an outline of your story. Memorize the main points, but feel comfortable enough that you can relax with the details. Don't try to memorize every sentence. Start your story in the action, with a first line that will grab the audience's attention and set the story's conflict.
3. Practice! Practice your story enough that, when you get on stage, you can relax and have fun with it. Time yourself to make sure you are telling your story in five minutes or less.
4. Memorize your closing sentence. When you walk on stage, have it in your head. There's nothing worse than telling a perfect story without a proper closing: rambling endings destroy stories.
5. Remember that no cue cards, phones, or notes are allowed on stage. See you at Stories!
