Congratulations to Beth Horenkamp! She won our "Caught" Story Slam with her hilarious tale of being caught making a U-turn on the highway by the police. Beth took home the prized pint glass and has earned a slot in the Lancaster Story Slam Grand Slam, which will be held in November.
It was a magical night of stories tonight. We heard about a mother catching her son having sex, and another story of a mom who will finally realize her son called a sex hotline from her home. We listened to one story about a trip to Italy where the tension was all in the traveler's head, and a tale about a night in a Paris prison cell. We heard about a teen taking a two-hour road trip to see a comedian and arriving at the theater a month early, only to have the comedian make fun of him on social media. We heard about an Amish Chippendale, and being bullied in school, and crying in the back of a police car after a desperate attempt to score a Coca Cola.
Thanks to all our storytellers tonight! Also thanks to our judges and everyone who came out to cheer on the competitors. A fun night of stories!
Tickets for the April 26th Story Slam, which is themed "Respect," are on sale now. Start thinking of your story!
