Story Slam winner Mandy Mastros with emcee Luanne Sims.

Mandy Mastros won our “Homecoming” Story Slam with her tale of growing up in Lancaster and leaving on a spiritual journey before returning to serve her community. Mandy edged out the competition to earn a slot in our 2018 Lancaster Story Slam Grand Slam.

The stories this night touched all of our emotions. We laughed about an attempt to regain that high school glory and we pondered a tale of accidentally running into “Mr. Heartthrob” from college. We were wowed with a story about coming home to find parents had moved, and we were saddened by a story about a mother’s death. We leaned into to listen to a story about the potential loss of a love, and we laughed at an embarrassing faux pas during a homecoming trip to campus.

We had so many first time storytellers, which we love! Thanks to all those who told stories, those who were our judges, and all who listened.

Our October 23rd Story Slam is themed “Skeletons in the Closet.” Tickets are available HERE. Save the date and prepare your story.
