Everyone Has A Story To Tell ...

and we want to hear yours!

Storytelling has become an art form in which everyone can participate and everyone can share.  Once a month, Skokie Theatre will hold its own storytelling competition based upon a “word of the month”.   Our first Story Slam will be held on Friday night, December 1, 2017 at 7:30.


Ten volunteers from the audience will be given five minutes to tell their story based on the theme for the month.


THE WORD FOR THE MONTH IS “DISTRACTION”.  Did someone distract you beyond your wildest dreams? Were you distracted before your son or daughter’s wedding?  What distracted you?  What were the effects of that distraction?  Was it a welcome distraction or a dangerous one?


Ten additional volunteers will be selected as our panel of judges.  Would you like to be one of them?  Come on in!


Whether you choose to share your story, join the panel of judges, or cheer them on from the audience, the Story Slam is a fun way to share experiences with your neighbors and your community.   Come pull up a chair and enjoy the original performing art ... the art of storytelling.


The winner of the first Story Slam will win dinner for two at a local restaurant.


In April, we will hold our first GRAND SLAM.  Our GRAND SLAM event will be a Slam-off between the winners of the first, second, third and fourth monthly Story Slam.  In addition, we will bring in some professional story tellers for your entertainment and to share stories along with the previous month’s winners.  Only the Story Slam winners will be eligible for prizes that evening.
