Story Club is a non-fiction, autobiographical storytelling show. The goal of Story Club is to mix the spontaneity of an open mic with the experience of live theater, so our evening features both audience members and curated performers. We love new storytellers...we love old storytellers...every month we end up with a lively, welcoming, unique evening of beginners and polished artists alike.
Before each show, audience members are invited to put their names in the hat (okay, it's a jar) for the opportunity to tell an up-to-7-minute story onstage. The four storytellers picked from the jar by the host will bare their souls and talents, and they'll be followed by our curated guests. Does this make you want to tell a story? GOOD! (Do it! Do it! Do it!)
April's show hosts are Amy Salloway and Martha Benda!
April’s featured performers are Lucas Evander Scheelk and Christina!
[Please be aware: This show does contain adult content.]
Lucas Evander Scheelk is a white, autistic, trans, queer-identified poet from the Twin Cities. Lucas uses they/them/their pronouns. They're the author of This Is A Clothespin (Damaged Goods Press, 2016), and Holmes Is A Person As Is (self-published, 2016). Lucas was a VSA Minnesota Emerging Artist grant recipient in 2016. They were also one of the 24 poets chosen for the 2017 Saint Paul Almanac Impressions Project. You can reach them on Twitter (@TC221Bee), or on Instagram (@lucasscheelk).
Christina is your average 32 year old college student who just got accepted to nursing school (yay!). When she isn't studying physiology or microbiology, she loves tooling leather, working out and playing Call of Duty. This is her first time telling a story live on a bona fide theatre stage.
Doors open at 6pm (food and drinks available for purchase); show at 7pm.
Story Club is produced by Sam Feree, Jamie Amy Ann, and Amy Salloway (www.amysalloway.com).
