White Buffalo, the storytelling event that makes you the star

White Buffalo Storytelling returns for its third year on Friday, Nov. 3.

White Buffalo Storytelling returns for its third year, inviting people to share and listen to real stories, starting on Friday, Nov. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Alpine Grind in Rossland.

In this series, for the first time, we take the stories to a coffee shop near you, before selecting the best stories for the stage. This is your chance to tell your dinner party stories to a captive audience or just kick back and listen to the event that turns storytelling into an artform.

Inspired by the infamous The Moth storytelling group in New York, the first in this year’s series calls for storytellers to bring their stories based on “War and Peace.”Each storyteller has five minutes maximum to perform and stories must be short, true and related to the theme — delivered from the heart, no reading, to get across the humour and emotion of their tales.

After the first event, the show moves to Bridge View Cafe in Trail on Feb. 9 with stories on the theme of “Family,” before culminating with The Best Songs and Stories of White Buffalo evening in the Muriel Griffiths Room at The Bailey Theatre on April 27.

Entry to the Alpine Grind and Bridge View Cafe evenings is by donation and those wanting to take part sign up at the door that night. The Best of event is $20 including dessert.

Also, as a bonus this season, budding storytellers can take advantage of the storytelling workshop with Jeff Leard on Jan. 20 from 10 am to 1 pm. The workshop, which costs $25 and includes lunch, will look at how to create interesting characters and make your story distinct. The morning will be interactive with participants taking part in scenarios and storytelling games.

For more information visit trail-arts.com, and for tickets to the Storytelling Workshop and Best of events go to thebailey.ca or call or visit the Box Office from Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
