A Night of Story Telling in Hallowell

Hallowell Lyceum and the Gaslight Theater:
Presenting The Hook Story Hour, an evening of stories

Friday, May 8th, 7:00 pm. Hallowell City Hall Auditorium

The Hallowell Cultural Committee, In partnership with the Gaslight Theater will present ‘The Hook Story Hour’ an evening of storytelling by people in the area based on the popular “Moth Radio Hour heard on NPR. May 8th at 7 PM at Hallowell City Hall Auditorium, at 1 Winthrop Street.

All the stories are true stories and will be told without scripts, including "Tales from the Big City", "The Adventures of a Honeymoon (where neither of the couple remembers proposing)", and a different view of family. Audience members will be invited to drop their name in a hat for a chance of telling a story of their own that evening.

The event is free and donations will be accepted to support future Lyceum events.
We hope that this will be the first of what will become an annual event. We encourage people to attend and see how easy and fun it is, and to get people excited about participating and telling a story in the future.

The Hook refers to an old name for a portion of Hallowell along the Kennebec River. The Hallowell Lyceum Series is a project of the Hallowell Cultural Committee, a consortium of Hallowell citizens and nonprofits including Gaslight Theater, Harlow Gallery, Hubbard Free Library, Ian Parker Foundation, Row House and Vaughan Homestead Foundation.
