Next Show — Tues Jan 26th, 2021. Get tickets now!

28 Oct

THANK YOU to everyone who came along to the Ghost Stories show — we had so much fun! Including and not limited to, ending with a Ghostbusters’ Theme Tune lip-sync dance party:

We’re taking November off, so that’s it for us in 2020! Next show will be Jan 26th.

We’re assuming we’ll still be in lockdown in January, so we have an online show planned for the end of the month. Get a ticket now and have something to look forward to in the new year! All the details below, but Cliff notes:

TRUE STORIES TOLD LIVE (TORONTO) ONLINE
Jan 26th, 2021, 7:30–9:30pm ET / 4:30–7:30pm PT

Tickets are once again Pay What You Can and you can get yours here:

See you in the new year!!

PS2 here, as promised, are all the details for the Jan show:

Toronto’s biggest storytelling show is back again — online and into your living room!

**ASL Interpretation provided**

Five storytellers will take you to places and live experiences you never thought possible (especially now!) and make you feel connected to other humans in a way that feels more essential now than ever.

This show will happen both on Zoom and you’ll need to get a ticket from this link:
https://artery.is/showcases/january2021

These are PWYC with a suggested donation of $15CAD (but really, pay what you *can) with proceeds being split between the performers, producers and volunteer helpers whose income has been impacted by this pandemic, and with Anduhyaun, a shelter and housing program in Toronto that supports Indigenous women and children.

DETAILS:

Tues Jan 26th @ 7:30pm—9pm ET / 4.30–6pm PT
On Zoom — info on how to join sent when you get a ticket.
ASL Interpretation will be provided!

If this show has taught me anything over the last 7 years it’s that, in BANANAS times when everything feels uncertain and weird and sometimes terrifying, listening to stories together makes everything feel better.

The plan is to ask you to assemble at 7:25ish ET. If you can’t make it for the start of the show, you’ll be let onto the call as soon as the current storyteller has finished. As much as possible, it would be amazing if you can stay for the whole thing — and the stories I’ve lined up mean you’ll be glad you did.

Again, if you’d like to be on the Zoom call, please get a ticket here (PWYC): https://artery.is/showcases/january2021

SEE YOU ON Tues Jan 26th! Spread the word!

It’s time for our yearly themed show, the wildly popular GHOST Stories Told Live!

**ASL Interpretation provided**

Also, while we can’t do a *singalonga* Ghostbusters Theme Tune, I am cooking up something just as fun!

The Facebook live is obviously free, so you’re paying your PWYC donation both for the good karma, and to get to peek at other people’s living rooms. It’s a pretty lovely experience!

Friends, it’s a pretty wild world at the moment. I’m so glad we have the technology to be able to come together anyway, and let our brains be carried off to different places by these five wonderful stories.
