Two quick announcements to put a bump in your hump day!
The 14th Annual SKALD Storytelling Competition is coming in June!
FACT: The live lit scene is EXPLODING in Chicago. Storytelling go BOOM, y’all.
FACT: The SKALD remains Chicago’s “longest running storytelling competition with a cash prize.”
FACT: We’re looking for bold, brave souls to bring the best stories to our stage and duke it out for cash and bragging rights!
We will be holding our two classic events, the MAELSTROM, (improvised storytelling) on Friday, June 14th and the SKALD14 (prepared 7 min stories) on Saturday, June 15th.
AUDITIONS for both events are scheduled for Saturday, MAY 18th from 10am – 3pm, with callbacks on Sunday, May 19th.
Sign up for a 5-minute audition slot and be prepared to tell the first three minutes of a longer story or improvise a two minute story based on auditor suggestion. You may audition for both contests, so indicate that in the request for a slot.
Solo stories, no props, no costumes, no technical additions.
To schedule your audition go here.
Other news of note is that WNEP will be producing two original one-act plays this summer!
RAINBOWS AND LOLLIPOPS by Dave Goss, and THE TRIBUTE by Rebecca Langguth.
We’ll be setting up shop at the Zoo Studios in Ravenswood from July 26th – Aug 17th!
More details on the show (and auditions for both plays) coming soon! Woot!
