Pro(s)e of Pie: I Ain’t Afraid of No ______
October 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Halloween storytelling around here is like no other setting in the world. Pros(e) of Pie is delighted to be bringing our Halloween show back to our newest regular venue – Bethany Arts Community. And we’re having so much fun with this month’s theme: “Ain’t Afraid of No ____” An homage to the original Ghostbusters movie tagline that’s taught us all that facing your fears can be funny!
You can sit back and enjoy the show or join the fun: sign up for a 5-mins open mic slot or submit an anonymous answer to a written prompt. Either way, we’ll all be there to support and share.
ABOUT THE THEME: Everyone’s got a story about enduring a particularly scary situation or struggling with a lifelong phobia. Did a late night horror film keep you up worrying about the boogie-man? Maybe you were tormented by a boss-witch or schoolyard bully? Were you able to overcome or are you still fighting it? This month, we’re sharing tales of both fear and fearlessness, and getting through it together.
ABOUT THE SHOW: Join us to listen to storytellers and humor writers from around the region tell true personal tales on the monthly theme in a Moth-inspired format.
PLUS a pie bake-off: To start the evening, you’ll indulge in a sampling of pies made by local “pie-trepreneurs” and vote for your favorite between stories. You’ll please your belly and warm your soul.
Entry fee includes pie tasting, beverages, and great entertainment! We sell out many months, so be sure to buy your tickets early!
HAVE A PIE FOR THE BAKE-OFF?
Admission is free if you bring a pie for the bake-off BUT YOU MUST NOTIFY US at least two days before to receive your free ticket. And if your pie gets the most votes, you win the prize and proudly bear the title of this month’s PieMaster!
