3rd Annual Mad River Story Slam
Saturday April 8, 2023 @7:30 pm
On Saturday, April 8, the Valley Players Theater will present the 3rd Annual Mad River Story Slam. This year's theme is “Dys’fun’ctional Families”. From funny stories about the families' favorite Uncle to the challenge of being the most functional member of your dysfunctional family, these stories from your community will bring laughter, understanding, and maybe a tear or two... all to remind us that we are really one big human family. The show starts at 7:30pm at the Valley Players Theater, and will be hosted by Valley Players board members Doug Bergstein and Susan Loynd. Admission is $10. Masks are optional.
8 storytellers will participate in two (2) workshops in March to learn tips from Suzanne Schmidt, host of Burlington’s MOTH, and experienced storyteller, Susan Loynd. In these workshops, storytellers will discover more about the storytelling process, meet other storytellers, and get feedback to refine their story for the Slam.
“The Valley Players are thrilled to continue this new tradition,” commented Doug Bergstein. “There is no better way to understand someone than to hear one of their stories.”
