Our second Passim story slam of the 2017-2018 season is on the theme "WITHOUT A NET." Bring your best true tales of high-wire risks to legendary Club Passim for an evening of engaging entertainment and dinner and drinks if you choose. 

The evening's featured teller will be Theresa Racicot, a flying trapeze instructor and aerialist. She has taught aerial conditioning throughout the Boston and Washington D.C. areas and is the founder of AeriaLibrium.  

Doors open at 6pm. Slam starts at 7pm. Tickets are $10 online or at the door. Get your tickets here!

What is a Story Slam? 
A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Story slammers sign up on that night to tell a 5-minute true story on the evening's theme. Ten names are drawn at random from a box. A team of five volunteer judges evaluates how well each story is told, how well it is constructed, how well the story explores, connects and/or reveals some truth about the theme, and how well it honors the time limit. The top-scorer is awarded a prize and this winner, the runner-up and the audience-selected favorite earn an opportunity to compete to perform at the "Big Mouth Off" at the end of the slam season in the spring!
