Truths Be Told: Proof

The Live Storytelling Series.  Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Doors @ 7:00pm // Show @ 7:30pm
Cover at the Door: $15 adults // $10 students (most appropriate for 16+)

Join us for a lively evening of true personal stories carefully crafted and told on stage (without notes) by The Hook’s five powerhouse storytellers: Rob Cline, Akwi Nji, Jenny Phan, Marta Pumroy, and Chuy Renteria. We’re joined by featured musician Blake Shaw. This month we explore the theme “Proof” and invite you to sign up at the door for a 5-minute open mic slot to tell your own well-crafted story inspired by the theme.

Proof of concept, proof of identity, proof of residence, that time you proved someone wrong (or yourself right). The possibilities are many!

Five featured storytellers, five open mic slots, live music, and drinks for purchase. Together, we build community one story at a time through words that engage, empower, and inspire.
