Free

EVERY MONTH.
ALL AGES.
ALL EXPERIENCE LEVELS.
ALL BACKGROUNDS.

Share your story, your poetry, or your prose. This month’s theme is “Unexpected Community.”

Story & Verse provides a warm and welcoming spotlight for both emerging and established artists in our Solley Theater, an intimate space in the heart of Downtown Princeton.

JOIN US AS A PERFORMER:

  • Prepare a story, poem, or spoken word piece up to 5 minutes in length and (at least loosely) related to the theme.
  • Arrive by 6:45pm to add your name to the hat. No previous experience or pre-registration necessary.
  • Optional: we will record your piece and upload to the Arts Council’s YouTube channel and social media platforms.

JOIN US IN THE AUDIENCE:

  • Take the elevator or stairs to the Solley Theater, located on the top floor of our Paul Robeson Center for the Arts.
  • Optional: participate from your seat with a Micro StoryRead the printed prompt based on the evening’s theme and respond with a super concise story (just a line or two!) that answers the question. Brass Rabbit will read your story at the mic, as time allows.
  • Find a seat and enjoy the performances. We kick off shortly after 7pm.
