Storytellers Sought for trueSTORM at trueTHEATRE

TRUE_logoWho doesn’t love a good story? Who doesn’t have one of their own? You’ve got a lot of them and you know others who do, too!

Well, True Theatre is looking for people, right now, to share their stories at our upcoming show (trueSTORM) on April 25, at Memorial Hall!

We’re mostly looking for stories that approach the theme literally (stories with a weather-related storm at their center). We will entertain a metaphorical approach to the theme as well, but are leaning toward the literal, when it comes to this show.

Snow storms, lightning storms, rain, hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc. For some, the story is in the anticipation of the storm’s arrival. For others, it’s the actual weathering of the storm that will be what they pitch. For still others, the storm is only the beginning of their story.

What’s your story?

If you have a story that you’d like us to consider, find your way over (or send someone that you recommend) to our submission page on our website ( or write us at and let us hear from you as soon as possible!

Thanks for your consideration and for helping us spread the word! We look forward to hearing from you.


Your friends at True Theatre
“Our stage. Your story.”
