CAUTION- Prepare a five-minute story about prudent behavior. Treading lightly, hedging bets, playing it safe. Vigilant rule-followers, overprotective mother hens, reckless thrill-seekers. Red alert- pitfalls ahead: hazardous materials, dangerous territory, toxic friends. Heeding the warning or throwing precaution to the wind. Slippery when wet.
Tickets become available one week before the show, at 2pm CT
The Promontory is thrilled to host The Moth every second Tuesday of the month.
The Moth's mission is to promote the art and craft of storytelling and to honor and celebrate the diversity and commonality of human experience.
Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories told live and without notes.
Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.
Through ongoing programs in more than 25 cities, The Moth has presented over 18,000 stories to standing-room-only crowds worldwide and it currently produces more than 500 live shows each year. Additionally, The Moth runs storytelling workshops for high school students and adults in underserved communities through their Education and Community Programs.
