Serving South Georgian Bay since 1975

 

since 2016, up and down the coast!

 

The premise is simple: this is a live, true, storytelling competition where participants are given 10 minutes to share a true-to-them story without notes or cue cards. A panel of guest judges selects their choice for top story of the night and a cash prize is awarded. Last season saw us bring 6 sold out shows featuring over 50 local story tellers to the area. The season culminated in a wonderful ‘Best of’ Grand Slam show at Meaford Hall.

 

The winners and fan favourites from this year’s events will be invited to perform at our Grand Slam Season Finale, this Nov 2nd at the Simcoe Street Theatre. The Story Slam is excited to partner with the BMFA on this event as part of their Fall Storytelling Festival!
