DAZZLED

Join us for an evening of True Tales told live on stage. The Moth Radio Hour flutters to Middlebury for a night of stories on the theme Dazzled. The Moth StorySLAM is an open-mic storytelling competition in which anyone can share a true, personal, 5-minute story on the night’s theme. Sign up for a chance to tell a story or sit back and enjoy the show! Tonight’s theme is…

DAZZLED: Prepare a five-minute story of a time you sparkled. Drippin’ in diamonds down the red carpet, smooth cruisin’ in a Corvette, or cosplaying as Marilyn Monroe. Share your shiniest, knock out memories that no one believes or the moments that prove that all that glitters is gold.

Doors Open: 6:30 PM
Show Starts: 7:00 PM

Seating is not guaranteed and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please be sure to arrive at least 10 minutes before the show. Admission is not guaranteed for late arrivals. All sales final. As many as 10 tickets may be available at the door for all of our StorySLAMs on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Sign-up for storytellers takes place in the lobby before the show. A Moth crew member will be positioned at the front of the house and will be available to answer any questions and facilitate the signing of a release form. We select 10 storytellers at random from those who sign up.

It’s important for potential storytellers to understand the following criteria for their stories, which we communicate in advance:

  • Narrative Structure: Each story should have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Please note, we do not accept stand-up routines, slam poetry, or monologues.
  • Presentation: Stories must be told without the aid of notes.
  • Authenticity: Stories should be true, told in the first person, and based on your own experiences.
  • Theme: All stories should align with the theme of “DAZZLED.”
  • Duration: Stories should not exceed 6 minutes in length.
  • Content: We strictly prohibit any form of racism, homophobia, misogyny, or hate speech within the stories.
