Produced and Hosted by Amy Salloway
Featured Storytellers: Laura Packer and Phil Gonzalez

Story Club Minneapolis is a live monthly storytelling show featuring both an open mic segment and a curated set of performers from all over the Twin Cities arts scene and beyond. Story Club showcases true, autobiographical stories -- especially stories that are bold, vulnerable, unexpected, and connected to the complexity of our cultural environment. No two Story Club evenings are ever alike, but each month when we wrap up the show, we feel like we've witnessed a new, unique little community coming together.

So! Starting at 6pm, audience members are invited to put their names in the jar for the opportunity to tell an up-to-7-minute story onstage (Requirements? Has to be a story, has to be true, has to be about you!). When the show begins at 7, three or four tellers are drawn at random to perform, and they'll be followed by our featured guests. Does this make you want to tell a story? GOOD! (Do it! Do it! Do it!)

Story Club's host and producer is actor/writer Amy Salloway! She's the creator of the award-winning autobiographical touring solo plays Does This Monologue Make Me Look Fat?, So Kiss Me Already, Herschel Gertz!, and Circumference, as well as the two-person show Entwined. She's contributed true personal stories to programs on MPR and CBC, and has been both a storyteller and story coach for the hit national podcast RISK!  You can take memoir and creative writing classes from Amy through Minneapolis Community Ed, and storytelling workshops through The Story Studio.  Find out more at Amy's Facebook page Awkward Moment Productions.

Laura Packer knows that the best way to the truth is through a good story; she has coached, told, taught, ranted, raved, consulted and considered storytelling around the world. She is committed to great storytelling, and helping others find their voice, tell their stories, and change the world. Laura has won multiple awards (including the 2018 Minnesota Story Slam Championship) and is the author of From Audience to Zeal: The ABCs of Finding, Crafting, and Telling a Great Story.

Phil Gonzales is the host of three locally-produced podcasts: "Deep In Bear Country - A Berenstain Bearcast," "Klickitcast - A Beverly Cleary Podcast" and "It's Del Toro Time - With Phil and Ollie." Phil has been acting around the Twin Cities since 1999, and most recently appeared onstage in his solo show "Deep In Bear Country - One Man's Dive Into the World of the Berenstain Bears" at Geek Love Cafe. He tweets at @PCoryGonzales.
