The Vail Leavitt Music Hall will be presenting the first East End Spring Story Slam on Saturday, April 14th starting at 3 pm. We are seeking performers with original stories in any genre (spoken word, music, song, dance, multimedia) to participate in this one-of-a-kind event. Stories should capture a personal experience in the lige of the storyteller – i.e. an event in which the storyteller was directly involved, as opposed to an event that happened to someone else and in which the storyteller had no personal involvement.

Stories should be performed without scripts or other visible notes and each story should be capable of being told in 5 minutes or less. Storytellers may be invited to share multiple stories as/if time permits.

Interested Talebearers should prepare a short video of your performance of an original story and email same to vailleavittproductions@gmail.com
no later than Friday, March 16, 2018. Be sure to include your name, the title of your story, and the best phone number to reach you. Storytellers will be notified of acceptance in the event by Friday, March 23.

We look forward to presenting your stories!
