Ex Fabula’s annual Spectacular is a non-competitive program of stories curated by a jury of Ex Fabula volunteers. This year, we’re returning to Turner Hall Ballroom on Thursday December 11 at 7:30 pm to hear Milwaukeeans’ true, personal stories on the theme of Surprise/Sorpresa. As at all Ex Fabula StorySlams, audience members can submit UltraShorts, which are 1-4 line stories on the night’s theme, written by audience members and then read onstage by emcees.

This year, the lineup will include 2 stories told in Spanish and interpreted into English as part of The Puente Project. This exciting opportunity to provide multilingual programing is made possible through a grant from UWM Cultures and Communities. Project participants invited by CORE/El Centro have met with an Ex Fabula storytelling coach to hone their storytelling abilities, and students from UWM Translation and Interpreting Studies are preparing to interpret stories into English when they are told live at the Spectacular.

$12 advance tickets are available at http://www.pabsttheater.org/show/exfabulaspectacular2014. Ex Fabula would like to thank all the sponsors who have made this programming possible: Season Sponsors BelAir Cantina and Tranfer Pizzeria Café and event sponsors the Milwaukee Business Journal and the Milwaukee Turners.
