Who owns the rights to your story? You do. Always.
Can I make up a story about my family? No. Your story must be true. It must be about you or your family.
Do I need to be a published writer or professional performer to participate? No! You are perfect just as you are! Diversity is important to us. We are looking for storytellers of all ages (18+), genders, races, creeds, and religious affiliations.
Do I have to memorize my piece? No, not for your audition, not for the performance. You will always have it in front of you.
How long should my story be? About 5 minutes. They can be shorter. So, do read your piece aloud and time yourself.
How do you define family? You’ve got the family you grew up in, your immediate family, extended family, work family, and friends who are family. You have family who you’re close to and family who you’re not. You could have birth family and an adoptive family, and a foster family, too. You could be trying to have a family. Or decided not to have a family. Family, in some form, is all around us. It’s however you define “family.”
