From September through May, they host monthly, Tuesday-evening performances in Anchorage at the Snow Goose Theatre. The next show on March 12, 7:30pm, has the theme of Do it Yourself: Stories of Homemade Concoctions, Solo Journeys, and Taking Matters into Your Own Hands. Looking for a better sense of who they are? Click on "shows" to listen to recordings of past stories. If you have a personal story (all stories must be true) that relates even abstractly to March's theme, visit arcticentries.com, click on "submit a story," and send a summary. They have story coaches and a relaxed, informal rehearsal, so don't worry about doing it right or not onstage the night of the show.
Tickets are $10 (cash only, limit 4 tickets per-person) and are sold at the door at 6:30 p.m. the night of the show, but the event sells out quickly, and those who snag tickets usually get in line much earlier. So why not skip the line, get a free ticket for you and a friend, and tell a story?
