Baltimore’s Stoop Storytelling Series 2017: March 1, 2017, MacManus Theatre

  • Since 2006, The Stoop has presented shows all over Baltimore, drawing crowds of 800 and more. It is a live event and podcast in which “ordinary” people tell the extraordinary true tales of their lives. The theme for the storytelling event is Legends of the Fall: Stories about Failure. The show will feature members of Loyola’s community — students, faculty, administrators, staff — telling 7-minute true, personal tales on the theme of failure.The Stoop’s motto is “Everyone has a story. What’s yours?” Everyone on campus is invited to submit a story to tell at the show!
  • Submitting a Story:
    1. Consider the theme of failure. What event or experience from your life does it call to mind? It can be funny or serious, a big mess or a small mishap. Failing is such a big part of being human, so don’t be shy about sharing.
    2. Write a brief summary (3-4 sentences) that states the beginning, middle, and end of your story.
    3. Email that summary to messina@loyola.edu
    4. Deadline is Friday, December 2nd, 2016!
  • Folks whose stories are selected for the show will be notified in January 2017 and receive coaching and support from The Stoop before the show.
  • A few more tips:
    • Stoop Stories are true, personal tales. If it ain’t true, and it ain’t about you, it’s not a Stoop story.
    • The Stoop is a venue for oral stories. An oral story is different than a written story. Or a TED talk. Or a stand-up routine. Tell us a story.
    • Stoop stories are shared with the live audience-not memorized or performed. There are no notes, no scripts, and no writing on body parts!
  • Learn more about The Stoop at stoopstorytelling.com.
