March 1 @ 7:30 – 9:30 pm (6:30 pm for pre-show cocktail* party)
Coyote Tales are live, open-mic style storytelling events with amateur and experienced storytellers. Each event has a theme, on which stories are to be based. Potential storytellers may address that theme in any way they choose. Prior to the event, storytellers craft their true, on-theme story, practice the telling (5 minutes or less), and work on eliminating excess detail to nail the perfect ending. When the doors open, potential storytellers put their name in the hat in hopes of being chosen to share their tale. If chosen, the storyteller takes the stage to delight the audience.
THE THEME FOR THE EVENING’S STORIES IS: FRENEMIES
Prepare a 5 minute story about a relationship that confounds you. Are you “friends” with someone you fundamentally dislike? Perhaps you have a friend who can always be counted on…to bring you down. Do you have a person in your life that always roots for you to do well, but just not better than them? Maybe it’s an object that you have a love-hate relationship with? Oh, do tell. Please no stand-up routines or rants.
Some listeners may find some stories’ subject matter difficult.
