Here’s the Story, Dec 2nd show. An End of Year Prize.

One of the coolest things we have added to this year’s season, and something we will be expanding upon in 2013, is our year-end show on December 2nd. This very special evening will feature a full line-up of your audience favorite walk-up tellers from 2012, and will also be an award ceremony!

On this night, Here’s the Story’s Year-End Prize will be given to the walk-up teller who has been given the most points by our audience over the course of the year. The prize is to have Here’s the Story advertise and produce a one-night performance of your own 45-60 minute solo-show.

We will give you script feedback and direction, and both promote and pay for one night of your solo show at Stage 773. You will have the benefit of community awareness generated through the Here’s the Story friends, family, colleagues, fans and the personal support of an experienced director and producer.

As storytelling is a reciprocal art… giving and giving back endlessly, our Year End Prize is an honor given to the person who garnered the most points from the audience over the entire year. We want to thank you for moving them, the audience, and we want to celebrate your stories.

T-Shirt Sale

It’s true that the cost of shipping and cotton on T-Shirts has gone up. That said, there are a number of shirts we have left from long ago and we are keen to sell out.

So next month we are bringing back the Strawberry Head T-shirt for a limited time and to incentivise buying the final ones we have dropped the price to eight dollars.

This design is one of my favorites. It was done by Amy Kuttab who has done a number of cool works for us, the most famous of which is the Telling Fire. Which is one of the few Here’s the Story pieces we have in our collection as originals.

Congratulations Joshua Safford!

Ahh, I’m so happy that Joshua Safford was so well received!

Totally magical! Thanks so much for coming out. A good friend, Kristin Abhalter, (Creator of the awesome Runner Trophy we presented during the robot apocalypse.) invited me out to a magic show a stint back and it’s there that I was introduced to Joshua for the first time. I slipped him a Here’s the Story postcard and upon looking at it he told me plainly, this is the sort of event for me. (Special thanks to Amy Kuttab for her great artwork.)

Journey to the End of the Night Sept. 17th

Join us!

Journey to the End of the Night: Robot Apocalypse JEN
Harrison Park
1800 W. 18th
Saturday Sept. 17th
6:00pm sign up
7:00-12:01am Game
Free! Invite Everyone!
CITY WIDE GAME OF TAG!

If you missed the last Journey to the End of the Night, run by our good friends over at CGø, this will be the most fun you’ll have all summer!

Here’s The Story invites the people of Chicago to participate in what will be a race, a game of tag, a scavenger hunt, and an incredibly chase through the city streets at night with your friends! This game rewards both the fit, the stealthy, the cunning and those who are smart enough to work the public transit system. Journey is happening again before it gets to cold to play outside! It is a free street game of cinematic proportions run by awesome volunteers in cities around the world. Make new friends, bring old ones, and find new ways to adventure in our city! It will be super fun, and the more people that play, the merrier! This is a purely community based event!

Click on the poster to RSVP on Facebook:

This time we’ve wrapped the game in story. You are all playing humans in an alternate Chicago. This alternate Chicago has been overrun by robots. Robots set on turning every last human into one of them. You will gather at Harrison Park (18th stop on the Pink Line) and there you will be given a map to freedom. Think of it as an underground railroad. You will have to make it to five safe zones before being allowed to escape the robots for good. Read more of the unfolding story at the disorder of the wild onion.

Basic Rules

You will meet at a crowded Harrison Park. There you will receive a map and two ribbons. One will be red. One will be blue.

The blue one will be placed on your arm. The red one will go in your pocket.

At 7:00pm you will follow the map across the city trying to make it to the secret checkpoints as quickly as you can. All the while you’ll be chased by robots wearing red ribbons.

If you get caught, you will hand over your blue ribbon as a prize to the chaser. You will take the red ribbon out of your pocket and place it around your arm. You are now a robot. The object of the game is to get to checkpoints without getting tagged or to catch as many runners as you can.

Advanced Rules

1. Chasers (Robots) may only catch one person at a time.
2. You must take the blue ribbon before you tag another runner.
3. Checkpoints are safe zones. No one can be tagged in a safe zone.
4. Safe zones will be noted on the map you receive in the beginning.
5. Public transportation is always a safe zone. The only thing that counts as public transit are buses and trains.
6. If there is an argument about who got caught, you settle it like adults in the dark of night between each other remembering the game is meant to be fun.
7. Everyone who makes it to the finish line is a winner and will receive a prize.
8. The runner who reaches the finish line first wins a trophy.
9. The chaser who captures the most runners wins a trophy.

Fill this out, and never miss another Here’s the Story event.

A Here’s the Story Contest Winner!

At the last show we were handing out postcards designed by Amy Kuttab. When I made these postcards I explained to the printer, “We’re hoping people go to shows and mail them back to us with little stories on them. We are an organization that promotes storytelling in all it’s forms.”

He replied, “Are you going to put stamps on them?”

I frowned, “No.” That was unfortunately not in our budget.

He empathized with my budget concerns and then with a breathy chuckle said, “Never going to happen, but good luck.”
