SOLD OUT.  We’ll be taking a waiting list at the door in case of cancellations and no-shows.

Saturday, April 19th at 7:30 ONE NIGHT ONLY!

KO SPRING STORY SLAM

at the A.P.E. Gallery
126 Main Street, Northampton, MA 01060

You’ve heard of poetry slams – competitive poetry events. Now, we’ve got one for first person, true stories – told live and without notes.  We’re celebrating the turn of the season so all stories must somehow relate to the theme of “Fresh Starts | Renewals | Awakenings.”   Maximum length – 5 minutes.

A huge hit for the past two summers and completely sold out last spring, with lines down the block at the A.P.E. Gallery in Northampton!

There will be some pre-selected ringers, but this might be your opportunity to take step up and tell your story. We’ll have a few slots reserved for last minute sign-ups – our first grand prize winner was someone who decided at the last minute to share a hilarious story about her experiences being fitted for a Playboy Bunny costume at the Playboy Club in NYC. If we have too many sign-ups, we’ll audition some first lines of stories – and audience members will get to vote on which ones should be told in their entirety.

Know a great raconteur – tell them about the event! Everyone should come prepared to listen, but you may want to come prepared to tell!  And prizes!

All tickets are $15, which goes to support the Ko Festival of Performance. Additional donations gratefully accepted – we need a new video camera!

If you are interested in being one of our story tellers please email us HERE.  OR you can call us at (413) 427-6147.  We have just a few slots left.   For regular attendees – we have just a few seats left.  ACT FAST!
