This Really Happened will be holding an open mic event as part of this year’s cabaret. Alongside the 2-minute readings, storytellers will have a chance to be randomly chosen to tell a 3-minute true story.

All stories should be true and must be told without notes, but the subject is up to you!  (Keep in mind it’s called This Really Happened because something should have happened.)

We discourage people from writing out their stories word for word, but we do encourage you to practice in advance.

Feel free to contact TRH co-producer Maria Schamis Turner ahead of time if you would like some basic guidelines and suggestions on choosing and telling a story.
