Rockstar Storytellers

Rockstar Storytellers is a collective of solo performers from a variety of disciplines — spoken word, stand-up, slam poetry, improv, creative non-fiction, sketch comedy, playwriting… hell, we’ve even got a mime. Described as being, “soaked in hipster irony” (with more than a dash of geekiness), the Rockstar Storytellers are still kicking a** and taking names. Come join us for our SEVENTH season at the Bryant Lake Bowl as we prove, "There ain't no party, like a Rockstar Storytellers' Party!"
