Story Slam returns to Olympic Theatre Arts Center

The Slam is back.

Story Slam, an event that sees participants share five-minute stories, returns to an in-person event for the first time in months at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, on the Olympic Theatre Arts Center stage, 414 N. Sequim Ave.

The theme for the evening is “Almost.”

“Everyone is invited to drop their name in the bag to share a five-minute true personal story on the theme, however you interpret it,” organizer Jeanné Sparks said.

“If your name gets pulled, you get on the stage to share. Of course, the event needs an audience, and everyone is welcome to come to listen, there is no pressure to be a teller.”
