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 about 10 minutes long. Make sure your story is in your authentic voice!
No need for "styling" it (i.e., motivational speech, stand-up, sermon on the mount, etc.)
Our Pants on Fire storytelling night at The Wooly features 4 storytellers, 3 that are completely telling the truth, and one whose story turns into a fib. The audience has to listen, question, and vote on the liar! Your stories can be about darn near anything.
These stories are 8-10 minutes long.
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 and getting feedback. It builds community before the show even begins! Then, you will receive personalized coaching to polish your story. We're in this together.
