Chances are good that when you think about going solo, it gives you the kind of thought that makes your knees quiver and your palms sweat. It could be that time you were forced on stage to prove your musical prowess, or in the case of Story Night, storytelling ability. You were on your, in front of so many people yet so dreadfully alone. Or it might remind you of the end a relationship you once treasured.
One the other hand, “solo” could conjure up a moment of freedom, a road trip or journey on your own, a time to spend time working on you and regarding only your own desires.
On Sept. 7, we’ll be hearing stories around the singular theme, “solo.”
The first six to sign up to tell a story are guaranteed spots on stage. Everyone after has their name go into a hat. We have one storyteller lined up, so far.
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.
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.
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.
7 p.m., August 3, 2017
