UPDATE: January 28th, 11:30 p.m. - Seats for the February 11 Story Slam have sold out. Thank you. We have tickets for the DELCO Story Slam, which will be at Newtown Square's Burlap and Bean on Wednesday, February 19. Click here for more info. Tickets for the March West Chester Story Slam will go on sale February 12th. Our February Story Slam is themed "Curiosity" and will be held at Side Bar on Tuesday, February 11th. Show starts at 8 p.m. We do expect this show to sell out so please reserve your seats early by clicking HERE.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary gives us the following definition:
: the desire to learn or know more about something or someone : something that is interesting because it is unusual
Some people are naturally more curious than others. Our lives are spent learning, searching for new opportunities, trying to understand the patterns of business, love and life. Curiosity often gets people in trouble or places them in dangerous situations. Curiosity leads to the pursuit of knowledge, and sometimes leads us to know something we wish we hadn't. Perhaps your children are curious and this makes you cautious while you watch them discover the world. Acting on curiosity leads to great inventions and new business models. No matter how curious a person is, we can never understand it all.
Anyone can take the stage and tell their five minute true story based on the night’s theme. Three judges will be chosen from the audience and the storytellers will be given scores based on content and presentation. The winning storyteller wins a coveted West Chester Story Slam coffee mug and, more importantly, a slot in the 2014 GRAND SLAM!
A reminder – you don’t have to tell a story to attend. We usually hear about ten stories and have approximately 65 people in the audience. Most folks reserve seats and arrive around 7 p.m. to enjoy dinner before the event begins. Don’t forget to read our Parking Tips located on the Home Page Menu.
Also – if seats sell out, we will update the website. We hope to see you on February 11th!
