WBUR Sponsors Moth StorySLAM At Oberon
WBUR is partnering with PRX to sponsor two StorySLAMs each month this season. If you love “The Moth Radio Hour” (airing Thursday nights at 9 and Saturday nights at 6 on WBUR), you won’t want to miss this live, homegrown version of the award-winning Moth formula: true stories, told live.
Here’s how it works. If you’re an aspiring storyteller, prepare a five-minute story that connects with the night’s theme — “Wanderlust” for the July 16th show — then rehearse it until you can tell it without notes. Go to Oberon in Cambridge with your ticket, and put your name in the hat. The Moth will choose 10 lucky storytellers to get up onstage and show their stuff. Or, of course, you can volunteer to be a judge – or even just sit back and enjoy.
Doors open at 7 p.m. WBUR’s Anthony Brooks, co-host of Radio Boston, will introduce the show which starts at 8. It’s general admission and seats fill up fast, so even if you have a ticket, get there early! For more information, visit The Moth’s site.
