Chion Wolf is the technical producer, announcer, photographer, and personality with WNPR and the Colin McEnroe Show. Her production house is aptly named “Chion Wolf Productions”.

She produces and hosts The Mouth-Off – a live storytelling event at the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford, a monthly live advice show at Sea Tea Improv’s underground comedy theater, “Asking for a Friend“, and a weekly Facebook live show, “It’s Chopped Salad Time! (with Chion Wolf”).

Chion is a an animator, and a stop-motion enthusiast. She is also an actor and on the Board of Directors for Night Fall, Inc., a yearly Hartford-based public performance with Anne Cubberly’s giant puppets, dancers, and music, and she is the founder of “Pedal to the Medal”, an annual pre-Eversource Hartford Marathon bike ride which benefits Hartford’s only educational bicycle store, BiCi Co.

Wolf is a founding member of the Hartford-based marching band, the Hartford Hot Several, where she plays the trash can bass drum. Chion is also a certified judge with the International Chili Society, and is unapologetic about her love for onions.

Story City is a troupe of storytellers based in the Hartford, CT area and mentored by Matt Dicks, one of The Moth’s champion storytellers. Story City Troupe uses The Moth Formula: all are true, personal stories, often funny, sometimes amazing, poignant or ironic and based on a single theme for the evening. The troupe members range in age from their 20’s to their 70’s, proving you can come up with a good story at any age.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll identify!

This group is led by Sue Huggans and welcomes new members. They offer new topics every month. The audience is invited to participate by “putting your name in the hat” – one or two names will be chosen to tell a story at the end of the evening.
