Story Night December 2017For three years we’ve spared you the horror of seeing people getting on stage and singing. This ain’t no karaoke cover band thingy we do here. No sir! We tell stories. We don’t sing ’em.

Well, for one night anyway, acknowledging the generous spirit of the holidays, we’re setting all that wisdom aside and inviting our storytellers to actually sing. We’ve a hunch we won’t regret it.

The theme for the night is “Soundtrack.” You can either tell a story about a song that has meant a lot, and then sing it. Or you can tell the story and sing a small part of the song. Or you can just talk about the song without singing any of it. Or maybe it’s a type of music. The options are varied. Contact Steve Gardner if you have any questions.

We usually say no props, no notes, no singing, no costumes, and keep it to 5 minutes. Since we’re going to allow singing, we’ll allow costumes and props, too. Since our storytellers will be singing, too, we’re going to be liberal with the time limits. The story should still be 5 minutes.

No Stairway.*

We’re on the hunt for a musician to accompany our storytellers. We have a line on one, but as of November 8 we don’t have anything set.

We already have four people signed up to tell stories. So get your name on the list quick.

Or maybe you just want to take it in. There’s plenty of room for that. The Clover Leaf will sell you good food and drink while you listen and relate.

Story Night is like sitting around a campfire, except the chairs are comfy and people bring you your food and drinks.
Each story is about five minutes long, true (Though our fact checking is notoriously lax.) and based on the night’s theme.

Come get to know some of your Kitsap neighbors.

To hear some of the stories from the past, go to storynight.org.

Story Night is presented in partnership with the Kitsap Regional Library.

* If you really want to sing Stairway, well OK. But you better not make us regret it.

Did you ever fall for that line from your girlfriend or boyfriend?
Did you ever purchase something saying, “I’d be stupid NOT to buy it,” then realize you were stupid to buy it at all? Did you ever discover that the “can’t miss” opportunity really could miss. Are you gullible for fake news? Did you try to get a degree from a fake university?

Take comfort, pal, you’re in good company. On Oct. 5 you’ll find out just how good that company is, as your friends and neighbors get on stage and talk about times they were bamboozled, shafted, scammed and hoodwinked. Or maybe they were the bamboozlers. Whatever the case, you’re not alone.

The first six to sign up to tell a story are guaranteed spots on stage. Everyone after has their name go into a hat. As of this moment, one spot has been claimed.

Or maybe you just want to take it in. There’s plenty of room for that. And the Clover Leaf will sell you good food and drink while you listen and relate.

No props, no notes, no musical instruments, just telling it from memory and talking to us like we’re friends, not students. Judges weigh in on who did best. The winner on this night will go home with a medal.
