Calling all Storytellers: Chrysalis, a live themed competitive storytelling event series, coming to the Bundy Museum of History and Art, April through August.

Friday, April 27, 7:30pm in the Bundy Museum Annex Theatre (behind 129 Main Street in Binghamton, NY). Doors open at 7pm (storytellers should come early).

Chrysalis dates coming up (themes TBA): May 18th, June 22nd, July 20th, and August 17th

Chrysalis, a live themed competitive storytelling event, is coming to the Bundy! Each month for the next five months people of all ages are invited to the Bundy Museum of History and Art’s Annex Theatre to tell true, 5 minute stories in front of a live audience. During the evening 10 randomly selected storytellers tell their stories. At the end a winner is announced.

The criteria is simple: all stories must be true, no notes, no props, and no rants! Just real people telling real stories.

Each event has a theme. Themes are meant as a loose suggestion for the narratives and provide a creative challenge, not as strict determinations of plot or structure. The current Chrysalis series take its themes from classic movies. In April, the theme is It Happened one Night, after Frank Capra’s 1934 romantic comedy starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable.

Come tell your story about a night that changed everything on Friday, April 27th at Bundy Museum. Doors open at 7 and the show starts at 7:30. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase. Admission is $5 and listeners and storytellers are welcome!
