(Boise, Idaho) In a high stakes existence, Story Story Night bets everything on the theme GAMBLE: Stories of Going for Broke on Jan. 27, 2014 at the Rose Room, located at 718 W. Idaho Street in downtown Boise.
Advance tickets are on sale now for $8, or at the door for $10. Doors open at 6 pm, and the show starts at 7 pm.
Featured storytellers Ron Torres, Nancy Sathre-Vogel, and Michelle LaMontagne lay their cards on the table with true stories on the theme, told live on stage and without notes, alongside a story slam. Open to the audience, the story slam opens the stage to five names drawn at random from a hat to tell five-minute stories. Prizes go to all storytellers.
Musician Thomas Paul performs, and Jessica Holmes hosts the evening.
“Life is the real shot in the dark, and how much we wager on it says a lot about who we are,” says Jessica Holmes, a co-founder and driving force behind the program. “So stake a claim, play your hand, and see who wins, when it’s all said and done.”
Story Story Night is an all ages event, though parental discretion is advised, held on the last Monday of every month in the fall and winter. A full bar (with valid IDs) and PieHole Pizza are available.
