Story & 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: 6:45pm
Stories begin: 7pm

- 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 email@example.com.
Free and open to the public!
