Our live storytelling shows at The Wooly & other venues are more generally-themed and are true, first person tales.
Check the listing below for our various themes, and see if you have a story that lines up.
We have 4-6 storytellers and the stories are 8-10 minutes long and memorized for the stage. You WILL be timed, and we will have a timer in the back of the venue to let you know when your time is up. So this is an important detail!
Make sure your story is in your authentic voice! (No motivational speeches, stand-up, sermons on the mount, etc.)
If you are cast in a show, you will have a required read-through as a cast. This allows you the (super fun) experience of sharing your story with other cast members, getting feedback, and get a sense of your 8-10 minute timing.
Then, you will receive personalized coaching to polish your story. We're in this together.
