Key into ‘karma’ for open mic story slam at Sequim’s Olympic Theatre Arts

Got a good story to tell?

The Olympic Theatre Arts stage is putting a spotlight on storytelling with the Out Loud Story Slam, set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, at the OTA gathering hall, 414 N. Sequim Ave.

Nessa Goldman and Jeanne Sparks host the story slam with the theme of “Karma.”

Get to know fellow community members as they take to the stage to tell a 5-minute, true, first-person story on the theme however they interpret it.

The open mic evening is open to all. Storytellers are judged by the audience, but organizers say the event is all in good spirits.

Audience members can participate anonymously, or just enjoy the tales of the evening. Ten tellers will be selected in total.

Those interested in telling or are looking fr a little more guidance, are asked to contact Out Loud Story Slam organizers at

The idea is that tellers prepare their best stories, and winners go on to participate in a “Grand Slam” slated for June.

Tickets are $10 for the general public, $8 for members of the Storypeople of Clallam County, and are available online at, at the theatre box office from 1-5 p.m. on weekdays, or at the door, if available.

Call 360-683-7326 for more information.
