Knock, Knock! It’s Your Neighbor 2014
– Tell Your Story –
Open-Call Auditions will be held on July 12th from 10-2 AND July 22nd from 2-6 at Helium Comedy Club
The theme for this year’s storytelling extravaganza is “Mistakes of Neighborly Proportions.” We want to hear your true tales of misadventure, mishap and misconception!
SE Uplift feels that it is time to spice up civic engagement by harnessing the transformative power of storytelling to build community, enrich contemporary life, and inspire authentic neighborly interactions. With your story-savvy expertise, SE Uplift will host an inspirational night at Helium Comedy Club on September 24, 2014, where ‘so-and-so’ (we mean you!) shares their mistakes of neighborly proportions. But wait, there’s more! After each story, local improv troupes Administration and Black by Popular Demand will riff on the tales with their own comedic stylings. The audience shows up ready to be entertained: they laugh, they cry, maybe they start thinking about their own communities. By the time they walk out of the club it hits them, “Hmmm, maybe I should get to know my neighbors?”
Check out our storytelling guidelines, prepare your 10 minute story and then join us for open-call auditions at Helium on July 12th from 10-2 or July 22nd from 2-6. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to request a specific audition time*. We’re sure all of your stories will be wonderful, but we’ll have to narrow it down to approximately five tellers for the event. We can’t wait to hear what you have to say about the folks next door!
*Auditions are first come first serve. However, if you have time constraints please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
