Our second year of hosting Truth Be Told story slams at Shine Restaurant was a doozy. Now we've gathered up the winners from all the slams of 2014 and have invited them to return to face off in an All-Star Grand Slam Championship at ETown Hall. The competition is gonna be stiff. It'll be a cross between open mic and cage-fighting.

Here's how it works: We give you the theme. You bring the story. Five minutes tops. Must be True. Told by Heart. Teams of judges will be selected randomly from the audience to rate the stories based on clever engagement with theme, stories well-delivered, and sheer storytelling awesomeness.

The theme for the Grand Slam is SECOND CHANCE. A do-over, a mulligan, a repeat performance.

Winners from the year featured at the Grand Slam will be Jim Walker, Morley McBride, Eryc Eyl, Michael Mathieu, Lindsey Bourgoine, Traci Brown, Ellen Nordberg, Glenna Murdock, and Ted Weaver.

Nina Rolle and Johanna Walker, the co-hosts of the evening, will offer up encores of their favorite musical interludes of the last year.  We'll have musical guest stars, a cash bar, light snacks, and as usual, a great night of storytelling.
We've had standing room only at all of our slams this year, so this event is bound to sell out. Be sure to get your tickets early.
