Call for Storytellers:

alt

AVA Gallery’s quarterly story-telling series, The Mudroom, is looking for storytellers who can tell a good story related to the theme “Breaking the Rules.” The event is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2019, 7-9 pm.

We would like to hear from storytellers of all ages and from all towns in the Upper Valley and beyond. Storytellers will be awarded an AVA membership and two guest tickets to the performance.

Stories are limited to no more than 10 minutes, must be true and autobiographical, and must be told live (not read).

Check out AVA’s Mudroom web page  or Facebook page to get a flavor of the event.  CATV8 has on-demand video of recent Mudrooms as well. Visit CATV8.org.

Story submissions and any questions may be directed to mudroom@avagallery.org.

The deadline for story submissions is August 16. By August 23, we will select five or six stories from the submission pool and will contact storytellers.  Selected storytellers will be expected to attend a rehearsal held on the afternoon of Sunday, September 8, at AVA.

Please spread the word!

Many thanks!
