Musing: A Storytelling Series


“True Stories as Remembered”
Gatherings Quarterly, beginning October 13th

BLUEBARN is thrilled to announce a new series of free public events spotlighting true tales as told by your friends and neighbors. No actors. No fictions. Each quarter, curator Seth Fox will invite and assemble folks from all walks of life to share their stories around a theme chosen for each event.  Anyone can participate. You can participate.

About Musing:

Each quarter, four to five storytellers will take to the BLUEBARN stage for a one night only event to tell a TRUE STORY based on a particular theme. Each storyteller will tell an 8 to 12-minute story that can range from the deeply poignant to the downright hilarious, or both, or somewhere in between. We’re looking for stories that will leave the audience with a takeaway to ponder, an experience to share, or a new perspective on our shared humanity. Storytellers of all cultures, backgrounds, and identities are encouraged to apply. And no, you don’t have to be a seasoned actor, performer, or public speaker. Musing is open to ALL. 

Answer the Call:

Have a story to tell? We’d love to hear from you. Know someone with a great story to tell? We’d love to hear from them, too! Each storyteller selected will receive two coaching sessions, and a rehearsal the week prior to the event with the other story tellers. Themes and dates for Musing’s season are listed below. To pitch your story, and for more detailed information, please contact story curator, Seth Fox, at 402.253.9005 or musingomaha@gmail.com.
