Story Night is on tour in Bennington for 2018! Check the
schedule on Story Night – Bennington VT for a place near you (hint: they’re all near you).
Theme: Under the Gun (interpret how you will)
Doors open at 7 and stories start at 7:30.
True Stories, no notes or props, up to eight minutes, up to eight tellers. Delicious dinner and drinks available.
Elements of a good story include:
• Knowing the beginning and ending.
• An arc is helpful and you must know that you are the hero of your story. That doesn’t mean that you put yourself on a pedestal but YOU are the central character.
• Change the names of integral characters who might not like being revealed.
• Think about and do a little rehearsal of your story before getting in front of the mic. Have an audience of your partner, parents, puppy, or a mirror. It helps.
• The audience wants to be there with you. Bring them along and put yourself in the story like you are new there too. This makes it a fresh experience every time.
• Risk a little and put yourself on the line. This is a safe space.
