Story Story night

“CONSUMED: Stories of Hunger and Appetites” will be the theme of the upcoming Story Story Night, being held on Monday.
This event offers a chance for storytellers to tell true stories onstage, without any notes and will showcase the talents of Boise’s featured storytellers Brent Southcombe, Cheryl Maddalena and Anna Demetriades.
“Storytelling is really a one of a kind experience. I think it shows the power of words in a way that you don’t really get anywhere else,” said Jessica Holmes, co-founder, host and driving force of Story
Story Night.
There will be a “story slam” at intermission, in which a few audience members will have the opportunity to take the stage and tell a five-minute story to the audience as well as a panel of judges.
The winner of the slam will receive a prize from Boise Guest House and Rediscovered Books.
Rules for the slam are simple: Each contestant has five minutes to tell a true story, without notes, that stays on theme for the night.
This all-ages event will feature live music by Dan Costello, pizza from Pie Hole and a full bar. Afterward there will be an after party including free drinks at Red Feather Lounge and Bittercreek Ale House.
“We’ve never done as awesome of things as we’re doing,” Holmes said. “It’s probably going to be one of the highlight shows that we’ve had this year.”
The event begins at 7 p.m. in the Rose Room, 718 W. Idaho Street. For more information on advance ticketing visit www.storystorynight.org. First-come first-serve tickets will also be available for purchase at the door at 6:30 p.m.
