Telling Tales Storytelling

Alt Mondays

 

“Narrow Escapes”

Monday, February 22, 2016

8:00 pm

 

 

 

 

What’s your story?

The Douglas Morrisson Theatre invites local storytellers to come share their stories on the theme of:   NARROW ESCAPES.

We’re looking for stories about times you squeaked out of a “situation,” whether it was a relationship, a job or a literal cliff-hanger. Or perhaps you’ve escaped from some situation you wish you hadn’t. We can’t wait to hear your story.

It’s pretty simple to be a Storyteller at DMT’s Telling Tales, here’s what you should know:

  • Please only bring us true personal stories about you. We’re looking for firsthand experience.
  • Please no scripts. Even if you wrote it down and memorized it, we want you to tell us the story with no script in hand as you remember it.
  • Stories should be no longer than 10 minutes. Sometimes all it takes is 1 minute to tell a perfect story.
  • Remember, stories are what the evening is about (no joke-telling or poetry).
  • PITCH US A STORY. Send your idea with email address and your story idea to tales@dmtonline.org.
  • If you’re picked, we’ll ask you to let us hear a sneak-peek just to make sure your story is a good fit for our audiences.

For complete “Telling Tales Story Guidelines” visit the DMT website at www.dmtonline.org and click on the Alt. Mondays image.

Open mic at the end of the evening for those inspired to share on the spot.

Or just come and enjoy the stories!

Tickets are $5, open seating.

We hope to see you here.

An Evening of Improv with

improv group

at the Douglas Morrisson Theatre

Tuesday, March 1 at 8:00pm

Made Up Theatre is the Bay Area’s home for improvised comedy and entertainment. DMT’s show will feature an all-star cast of improvisers who use nothing but audience suggestions to create fresh and hilarious improvised scenes. Voted “Best Comedy Theatre” by Reader’s Choice, we invite you to enjoy the night out and experience the magic and fun of improvisational comedy.

Two different formats of improv will be presented during the show: Laugh Track City for the first half of the evening and 5 Play for the second half.

Laugh Track City is Made Up Theatre’s fast-paced short-form improv show that will have you laughing ’till you cry! Similar to TV’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” the cast of Laugh Track City plays a series of improvised games and scenes based on audience suggestions. It’s fun, interactive and hilarious.

5 Play is widely regarded as the most physical and fast-paced improv group in the San Francisco Bay Area. Using a made-up title provided by an audience member, 5 Play will create a fully improvised movie before your eyes. 5 Play has been performing across the Bay Area and beyond since 2009. Some of their accomplishments include:

  • Voted Best Improv Group at the 2013 Sacramento Comedy Festival
  • Official participant in the San Francisco Improv Festival 5 consecutive times.
  • Made Up Theatre voted one of the Best Comedy Venues in South Bay by CBS.
  • Voted a 5-star Yelp! “Best of Nightlife”
