The Funhouse at Mr. Small's presents: What's the Story? A story slam of live, true stories shared with the public. Modeled after other story slams from around the world, What's the Story? presents real stories of life in the modern world, told by the people who experienced them. Our first monthly topic is "New Beginnings"! Come and tell us a story of a new beginning in your life, or hear others tell their stories of new beginnings. Stories will be judged by three different judges selected on the night of the slam. Come early and enjoy food and drinks before the show begins.

What's the Story Rules: 1) Submit your name to tell your story when you arrive. 10 people will be selected to tell their stories throughout the night, 5 before the break and 5 after the break. 2) Your story must be about you or directly related to you. 3) Your story must be true to the best of your recollection. 4) This must be a story, this is not the place to practice your stand-up routine, your new script, or your audition for your next stage play. 5) Stories should be no longer than 5 minutes, storytellers will receive a 1-minute warning when they should be wrapping up their story. The storyteller will receive another visible signal when their time is up. 6) Stories will be judged by three judges selected for the evening, none of whom can be storytellers performing that evening. 7) The Winner for the evening will receive $50.00.
