The Back Fence PDX story telling show returns to the Mission Theater (1624 NW Glisan) this Thursday, May 26, 2011.
Story telling show? How’s that work?:
Our Back Fence Storytelling event is the kissing cousin to San Francisco’s Porchlight Storytelling Series. It is an evening with seven people telling true, unmemorized ten-minute stories based on the month’s theme. The stories must not have been performed publicly prior to their Back Fence PDX telling.
Heather and have had a great time at all the Back Fence PDX productions we’ve been to. For one thing free cupcakes from Saint Cupcake make the rounds at intermissions. The story tellers are always courageous and their stories are often amusing, always entertaining, and sometimes gut wrenching or cringe inducing – you really don’t know what to expect!
The theme of this particular show is HOT AS SHIT or MISFIT?, and the lineup includes:
ROD ENGLERT – Blood Spatter Expert
ZACHARY SCHOMBURG – Scary, No Scary + Octopus Books
MOE BOWSTERN – Fisherwoman + Former anarcho-activist
ERIC SCHEUR – Animator for TV Commercials
APRIL WOLFE – Snap Judgment + Comedy Duo: Just Desperation
But that’s not all!
YOU can put your name in for our super exciting LIGHTNING ROUND with celebrity guest SABRINA MILLER from Cascadia FM! FIVE randomly drawn audience members will have a chance to strut their narrative stuff by doing their best to tell an entire HOT AS SHIT story in just ONE MINUTE!
And don’t miss the Popina Swimwear fashion show at 7:15!
Reserve your tickets now for $12, and bring cash (for everyone’s convenience) to the show to claim them! A few non-reserved tickets will be available at the door for $15. The show is 21 and over only. Doors will open at 6:30pm for food and drink and chair claiming, fashion show at 7:15pm, and the show starts at 7:30pm.
