When I Said YES!

Join The Actors Studio of Newburyport for their end of the year celebration where the top winners of 2023, compete for the title of “Full Moon Grand Slammer”, but anyone in the audience will also have the opportunity to tell a two (2) minute story. It can be based on the theme, or it can be about any subject they would like to talk about.

This is the eighth season of true-life stories told without notes or props on themes ranging from synchronicity to pronouns. The Studio’s Full Moon Story Slam is modeled after NPR’s Moth Radio Hour. It is a story telling competition with a few simple criteria for both the official judges and the audience to vote for their favorites.

It has been a consistently popular event since its inception, so much so that, during Covid restrictions, it expanded nationwide as a Zoom event.

The Slam is your chance to gather as friends and share true stories from your lives. Simply put, a story slam is a competition based on the art of storytelling. It puts a dual emphasis on content and performance, encouraging storytellers to focus on what they’re saying and how they’re saying it. It is an exercise in crafting stories within a set time limit.
