Story fans, we think you deserve a little breather from the craziness of holiday season. So give yourself the gift of 7 spectacular stories this month.
Join Ex Fabula at Turner Hall on Thursday, December 19th for the annual Ex Fabula Spectacular. For those of you who haven’t been to a Spectacular show before, it is a little different than our typical StorySlam format: all 7 storytellers for the Spectacular are pre-selected from among our favorite community and past Ex Fabula storytellers. Each of their stories on the theme of the night, “Bad Company”, will be 10 minutes long, and there will be no audience favorite voting as the Spectacular is a non-competitive showcase event.
Tickets to the Spectacular are $15 at the door (cash only), and are also available in advance! Please note that additional fees apply for tickets purchased in advance.
As usual, the show will start at 7:30 with doors opening at 6:30.
Bummed that you won’t get to tell your own Bad Company story on stage? Don’t despair: we will be sharing the best audience UltraShorts on stage between stories. UltraShorts are bite-sized versions of stories that are submitted on paper and read on stage by our MC. Being only a few sentences long, UltraShorts are perfect for storytellers with stage fright and stories best served short and sweet. UltraShort slips will be available before and during the show for those wishing to submit their “Bad Company” mini-story.
The theme may be “Bad Company,” but you’ll be in good company with us. So bring your friends, family, and colleagues in from the Milwaukee cold and let our storytellers treat you to 7 generous helpings of holiday cheer.
Don’t forget to follow our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute updates and two chances to WIN free tickets to the show!
Also, a big shout-out goes to Milwaukee’s own Transfer Pizzeria – they are generously providing pizza dinner for our awesome volunteers on the night of the show!
Finally, stay tuned to our blog, Facebook, and Twitter for the inside scoop on our featured storytellers. And mark your calendars, because you don’t want to miss them live!
