This season flew by faster than 5 minutes on stage at an Ex Fabula event. It seems like just yesterday we were kicking off the season at our first-ever fundraiser and now here we are, announcing our final regular StorySlam of Season 5! 

Yeah, those April Fools pranksters are no match for you. So after you match wits with the tricksters, come join Ex Fabula on Wednesday, April 2nd, for a StorySlam on the theme of “Fool Proof“. We’re back for an encore at Hot Water Wherehouse, 818 S Water St. Non-members pay only $7.00 at the door (cash only) to cure the hump-day blues with another rousing round of true and personal stories. The show starts promptly at 7:30 PM, and for optimal seating and shorter drink lines, we recommend coming closer to 6:30 when the doors open.

If you want to tell your 5 minute story, please arrive early (6:30 is ideal) to get your name in the hat. We’ll draw names at random, and we reserve 3 of our 9 slots specifically for first-timers.

Whether you took no prisoners this April Fools or fell for every trick in the book, we hope to see you at “Fool Proof”! One last audience favorite story teller will book themselves a ticket to this season’s capstone All Stars show in May!

Speaking of which, have you been waiting with bated breath to see the best of Season 5 duke it out at the finish? ALL STARS tickets are on sale NOWGet ‘em while they’re hot! Stay tuned for more information and announcements about our All Stars show in the coming weeks.

Looking for something to do this weekend? We here at Ex Fabula are pumped for the Teen Slam State FINALS on Saturday! The best of the best of Wisconsin youth will be going word for word to represent the state at the 2014 Brave New Voices International Youth Spoken Word Festival. This event is totally FREE and will be an entertaining and inspiring showcase of a rising generation of storytellers. For more information, please visit the event Facebook page. We hope to see you there, and would love to hear your favorite parts about the event on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
