Posted on

We’re kicking off another year at Ossining’s beautiful Bethany Arts Community with a SURVIVAL themed show. And we’re bringing you a great mix of returning PoP alumni and some first-timers we’ve been angling to get up here for some time.

Bryan Berlin – Moth StorySLAM winner,  creator and host Love Hurts podcast
Vernon Payne – Brooklyn-based comedian and storyteller, comic strip author
Michelle Carlo – RISK!,  MOTH MainStage, PBS’s “Stories from the Stage”, host Radio Free Brooklyn
David Lawson – RISK!, Mortified, hosts The Astoria Bookshop Storytelling Show

When:  March 16, Doors 7:30pm, Show 8pm
Venue:  Bethany Arts Community
40 Somerstown Rd – Ossining


ABOUT THE THEME:  Everyone’s had that moment. When despite the odds, despite all predictions, you persevered. Was it a truly life-altering experience, or momentary teen angst when a single phone call felt like life or death. No matter how serious, you made it out the other end, and now we want to hear all about it!

ABOUT THE SHOW: Join us to listen to storytellers and humor writers from around the region tell true personal tales on the monthly theme in a Moth-inspired format. You can sit back and enjoy the show or join the fun: sign up for a 5-mins open mic slot or submit an anonymous answer to a written prompt that we’ll read off for you. Either way, we’ll all be there to support and share.

PLUS a pie bake-off: To start the evening, you’ll indulge in a sampling of pies made by local “pie-trepreneurs” and vote for your favorite between stories. You’ll please your belly and warm your soul.

Entry fee includes pie tasting, beverages, and great entertainment!  We sell out many months, so be sure to buy your tickets early!

Admission is free if you bring a pie for the bake-off BUT YOU MUST NOTIFY US at least two days before to receive your free ticket.  And if your pie gets the most votes, you win the prize and proudly bear the title of this month’s PieMaster!
