Ex Fabula invites Milwaukeeans to tell “Crossing Over” stories
Ex Fabula's 6th season of StorySlams is under way - starting with an event on Wednesday October 22nd at the Times Cinema on 5906 W Vliet St.
Milwaukee nonprofit Ex Fabula’s 6th season of StorySlams is under way – starting with an event on Wednesday October 22nd at the Times Cinema on 5906 W Vliet St. Attendees have the option to throw their name in the hat for a chance to share a true, personal story on the theme of “Crossing Over” – or they can just come to listen and vote for a favorite story. Attendees are also encouraged to submit UltraShorts, written stories of about 1-4 sentences on the night’s theme; the best UltraShorts will be read on stage in between stories.
On the 22nd, doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:30. Seating is general admission. $8 tickets are available at the door – but starting this season, advance tickets are also available online. Ex Fabula’s 6th Season StorySlams are sponsored by BelAir Cantina and Tranfer Pizzeria Café, and the October event is sponsored by Meritage, which is just across the street from the Times and is the perfect location to enjoy contemporary American cuisine from their seasonal menu prior to the StorySlam.
