Posted on

Get ready for some outstanding storytelling this October!

sunnyside-storyjam

We’re especially excited to be working with Historic Hudson Valley to co-produce an evening of storytelling at Washington Irving’s Sunnyside.  Instead of our usual monthly theme, we’re celebrating our form of great American storytelling at the home of America’s first great author.

Two hundred years ago, Irving gave you Ichabod Crane, Rip Van Winkle and the Headless Horseman. For this special night, we bring you a mix of Moth superstars, local storytelling masters, and seasoned entertainers sharing their best true stories. Adventures and embarrassments, loves and joys, achievements and defeats – you’ll experience them all.

Join us under a grand tent, with Irving’s stately home and the beautiful Hudson River providing the backdrop for the season’s best evening of storytelling.

This is one you won’t want to miss. We’re expecting tickets to sell-out, so get yours now!

When: Oct 15, 7:30pm doors (8pm show)
Theme: STORY JAM @ Sunnyside
Venue: Washington Irving’s Sunnyside, Tarrytown

BUY YOUR TICKETS EARLY! 

*One more important change to note : Due to the size of expected audience, there’ll be no pie bake-off at this event. There will be food & drink concessions. Check our schedule for other opportunities to indulge your monthly pie cravings!

Posted on

We’re kicking off a new season of storytelling by making our first appearance at a hidden treasure of a venue -The Sleepy Hollow Firehouse Hall. Come find out why the lucky few who’ve seen events here have raved about it.

When:  Sept 17, 8pm
Theme: WHAT GOES UP
Venue:  Sleepy Hollow Firehouse Hall (enter thru Village Hall)
             28 Beekman Ave – Sleepy Hollow

BUY YOUR TICKETS EARLY! 

About the theme: This month we share your brushes with success – and the near misses! They could be small victories, grand endeavors, even the failed attempts. Was the secret ingredient hard work, good luck, nepotism? Sometimes triumph is in the eye of the beholder and only you appreciate it. Was your rise to the top a gripping roller coaster ride? Or was seeing the top just a prelude to a glorious crash?  We want to hear about the ups and downs as you chased success.

Pie bakers welcome: Tempted to see how your pie-baking skills stack up against your neighbors? Here’s an incentive for entering a pie in our bake-off. Your pie gets you one free admission! Please keep in mind: to get your free ticket, you MUST let us know what type of pie you’re bringing a pie at least TWO days in advance of the show.  Get in touch soon with the type of pie and we’ll reserve your spot!

Storytellers: We’ll have prepared storytellers and plenty of open mic slots. If you have a great story you’d like to share with our audiences, email co-producers Ivy Eisenberg or Zak Shusterman. Featured storytellers get a free guest admission! Don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of open mic slots that night too.

We all have a story in us. Come share, listen, and eat!


PoP at the Chautauqua Institution

We’ve been at the Chautauqua Institution in western New York teaching a fully booked week-long storytelling class called “Telling the Stories of Your Life”. This is the second year in a row we’ve been invited to add our brand of storytelling to the curriculum.

About the theme: Talk about mixed feelings! This month, we’ll be hearing stories about conflicted feelings, mixed reputations – all those difficult love/hate relationships. That horrible ex you just couldn’t get enough of. The soul-starving job that paid you too well to leave. The time your arch-nemesis saved your life.

We want to hear about all the Love/Hate experiences you’ve lived through.
