Ex Fabula’s first event of 2012 will be Tuesday, January 10, 7:30 p.m. at the Bayview Brew Haus, 2535 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., Milwaukee. If you’ve never told a story before because you were nervous, or thought you wouldn’t know how, this will be a great event for you to take the stage as the theme is “Faking It.” Just pretend you are a master storyteller with warrior courage. We won’t tell.

Those interested in sharing a story on the “Faking It” theme are encouraged to arrive by 7:15 p.m. (at the absolute latest) to sign up. The storytellers will be drawn from the hat throughout the night and each will have five minutes to share his or her story. An audience favorite will be voted on at the end of the night and that person will be invited to tell a story at the Ex Fabula All Stars event at Turner Hall in June.

January 2012 is an extra special month for Ex Fabula with TWO events. Mark your calendars for the Terminal Milwaukee “Generation Gap” event, Saturday, January 28 atKochanski’s Concertina Beer Hall. Details to come.
