The Buttonwood Tree is proud to host storytelling troupe Story City for a recurring “Moth Style” storytelling event, on January 4th, from 8 – 10 pm
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. New topics every month. The audience is invited to participate by telling a story at the end of the evening also.
