Come experience Coyote Tales at Center for the Arts at Kayenta! Coyote Tales are live, open mic-style storytelling events for amateur and experienced storytellers. Each event has a theme on which stories are to be based – this month's theme is “Frenemies.” Potential storytellers may address that theme in any way they choose. Prior to the event, storytellers craft their true, on-theme story, practice the telling (5 minutes or less) and work on eliminating excess detail to nail the perfect ending. When the doors open, storytellers put their name in the hat in hopes of being chosen to share their tale. If chosen, the storyteller takes the stage to delight the audience.
Prepare a 5 minute story about a relationship that confounds you. Are you “friends” with someone you fundamentally dislike? Perhaps you have a friend who can always be counted on…to bring you down. Do you have a person in your life that always roots for you to do well, but just not better than them? Maybe it’s an object that you have a love-hate relationship with? Oh, do tell. Please no stand-up routines or rants.
This Coyote Tales event will take place Friday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta (881 Coyote Gulch Ct.).
Tickets are $20, which includes admission to the pre-show cocktail party beginning at 6:30 p.m.
This month's Coyote Tales event is generously supported by Utah Humanities and Petite Feast.
