NEW!! HALLOWELL: The Hallowell
Lyceum Series is calling for storytellers
to participate in The Hook Story Hour on May 8, 2015 at
Hallowell City Hall Auditorium. Based on the popular radio show
“The Moth Radio Hour” heard on MPBN, The Hook Story Hour will be
an evening of stories based on real life experiences in the
Kennebec Valley told live in front of a supportive audience. The
Hook is an old name for an area in the city of Hallowell.
Organizers are looking for anyone with a story they are
interested in telling to a live audience. You don’t need to be
an author, poet, storyteller, this is open to all who have a
story to share! Stories must be true, they must told without
scripts and they should be no more than seven minutes in length.
To participate, prepare a 2-minute pitch for your story (or
stories) based on an experience in your life connected to the
Kennebec Valley. Gaslight Theater members will hear pitches live
at Hallowell City Hall Auditorium on 3/16
at 6:30, or you may upload your video pitch to YouTube or Vimeo
and email a link to Gaslight Theater director Richard Bostwick
If your pitch is chosen, Gaslight Theater staff and others will
offer optional coaching sessions before the event. Some
guidance: Have a great first line that sets up the stakes or
grabs attention; Stakes are essential in live storytelling. What
do you stand to gain or lose? Why is what happens in the story
important to you? If you can’t answer this, then perhaps think
of a different story or different angle to your story; Know your
story well enough so you can have fun! Watching you panic to
think of the next memorized line is harrowing for the audience.
Make an outline, memorize your bullet points and play with the
details; Steer clear of meandering endings; They kill a story!
For more information, contact Richard Bostwick of Gaslight
