Highlight presents: The Moth Story Slam
4:00–6:00pm @ Unitarian Universalist, 152 Pearl Street, Burlington, VT
This event is part of Highlight, Burlington’s new citywide New Year’s Eve celebration. To see the full information for Highlight’s 30+ events, visit http://highlight.community. Tickets allow entry to this event and all other Highlight events.
**We anticipate this event to hit capacity, so if you really want to be there, please arrive early!**
For twenty years, The Moth has been celebrating the diversity and commonality of the human experience. This year The Moth presents the stories you have waited all year to hear. Communities members will be selected at random to tell a true, first-person, live story based on the theme. The winner of the evening will have an opportunity to participate in the Moth Grand Slam.
Disclaimer: The Moth has no age minimum, though we encourage you to first consider the following: Story Slams are open mic; The Moth does not control the content or know what story is about to be told onstage. Some of the tellers share raw and explicit stories that may contain profanity that are very much meant for an audience aged 16 years and older.
