Story & Verse

August 19, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Performer and audience at Story and Verse

Enjoy an evening of community-created entertainment in the form of storytelling and poetic open mic! Our Summer Story & Verse series—June through August—will be held outdoors at Petoranello Gardens, Community Park North (20 Mountain Ave, Princeton).

All are welcome to tell a well-prepared story or perform their poetry. Each month, we’ll be inviting inspiration from a well-known song title. Artists are invited to interpret the theme as broadly as they wish. Performers must bring their own work, inspired by this month’s theme: “Circle of Life”.

Hosted by Brass Rabbit and Phillip McConnell, the evening will include 45 minutes of stories and 45 minutes of poetry with a brief intermission.

Performers arrive by: 5:45pm
Stories begin: 6pm
Free RSVP: https://bit.ly/38tI4ei

Performer Details

  • Performers will be randomly selected from names in a hat.
  • Storytellers should prepare a 5-minute story on the theme, true and about the teller.
  • Storytellers should follow “The Moth” guidelines.
  • Poets should perform their own poetry, up to 5 minutes in length, related to the theme.
  • Performers will be selected at random, so it’s possible that not everyone will get to perform.
  • Questions? Let us know at info@artscouncilofprinceton.org.

Free and open to the public!
