Mass Mouth Story Slam at Trident

January 9, 2018 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Mass Mouth hosts their first story slam of 2018. The theme? “TOAST!”

Bring your best true stories of toasty/toasted times – however you interpret the theme – to Trident’s upstairs cafe for an evening of engaging entertainment. Dinner and drinks will also be available for purchase.

Doors open at 6pm. Slam starts at 7pm. Tickets are $10 online or at the door. Get your tickets here!

What is a Story Slam?
A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Story slammers sign up on that night to tell a 5-minute true story on the evening’s theme. Ten names are drawn at random from a box. A team of five volunteer judges evaluates how well each story is told, how well it is constructed, how well the story explores, connects and/or reveals some truth about the theme, and how well it honors the time limit. The top-scorer is awarded a prize and this winner, the runner-up and the audience-selected favorite earn an opportunity to compete to perform at the “Big Mouth Off” at the end of the slam season in the spring!
