The Raleigh Public Record & Little Raleigh Radio are once again hosting storytelling showdown, the Oak City Bard Brawl! This year’s theme is What About the Future, where contestants will spin yarns about how their once-image of a future Raleigh has measured up with reality.
Come out Apr. 9 to Kings Barcade to be a part of the action. Competitors get five minutes to wow the audience, and the audience gets to help decide which six go on to the final event in the spring.
For those who want nothing more than to cheer and boo and slosh their drinks:
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Show starts at 7 p.m.
Cost: $10. No tickets needed in advance.
For those of you who have been searching for a good excuse to stand on stage, shoot us an e-mail at email@example.com with the subject line “Bard Brawl”
We need your name, email, and why you want to compete in 100 words or less.
- Stories must be original, and must relate to Raleigh in some fashion.
- No notes! This is a closed-book test.
- No props except the drink in your hand.
- Five-minute time limit will be strictly enforced with an air horn.
