Some Google sources say April 4 is National “Tell a Lie” Day, but others say it’s on April 5. We don’t know who to believe, so we’ll just celebrate it on March 19! Join us at The Workshop Brewing Company for Lie Like a Rug, where scheduled performers will be telling true stories about lies they’ve told, they’ve been told, they’ve told themselves. Performers include Daniel Stewart, Dave Murphy, Matt Soderquist, Lesley Tye, and Jody Betten, with guest emcee Ben Whiting.
Grab the Mic While It’s Open!
We’ve been having so much fun at the open mics this season! Don’t forget, the mic is open on the first Monday of the month through May, so you have two more chances this season to get your storytelling feet wet. Whether you’re novice or experienced, telling a story for the fun of it or looking to see how a story in progress works on stage, the audience wants to hear it! Remember: true stories with a beginning/middle/end, no more than 7 minutes. Find out more here.
Save the Dates!
We can’t stop telling stories! So after our last mainstage show of the regular season in May, we won’t be quite done. On Wednesday, May 30, as part of Traverse City Bike Month, we’re tagging along with Norte for its kickoff TC Rides. Join us for this progressive storytelling show as we bike to various TC parks and dismount to watch a storyteller share a story with us from a mobile stage. We had great fun doing it last year and are excited to do it again!
We’re also excited to help kick off Up North Pride week again this year. Join us at The Workshop on June 18 for a special-edition of Here:Say!
Look and Listen!
Don’t forget, if you ever miss a show or want to listen again, you can catch our podcast—including complete seasons 3 and 4 and everything through the February “Love Craptually” show of season 5—is available on Podbean, Stitcher, and iTunes. We’re also excited to announce that we’ve restored a few lost episodes from Seasons 1 and 2: “The Water Cooler”, “Dear Diary”, “The B-Sides”, and “Can We Be Heroes?”
AND… we had a great time performing alongside lots of terrific local talent at Picnic at the Opera at City Opera House last month. Want to see what you missed? All four episodes—featuring stories by Matt Soderquist, Karen Stein, Christal Frost, and Daniel Stewart—are available here.
