Got a good fish story? Are you a spinner of tall tales?
Real People Media is inviting storytellers of all ages to come share their best story for The Red Jacket Jamboree, Have you ever started a sentence with “You're not going to believe this” or Guess what happened to me? If the answer is yes, then we're interested in hearing your story! So come spin your best yarn about life or work in the U.P.!
Stories need not be true but they should be family friendly and be able to be told in under 5 minutes. Storytellers will have assistance with sound affects from The Red Jacket Jamboree actors as well as musical accompaniment.
The Red Jacket Jamboree is also accepting poetry submissions for the October Show. The crew is interested in poetry which reflects the Keweenaw National Historical Park Heritage Sites or relevant to the season. i.e. change in weather, harvest time, upcoming hunting season, etc.
Interested Poets/Storytellers should send an email asap to firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meeting with the Red Jacket Jamboree crew. A preliminary rehearsal will take place the first week in October. Two people will be selected to tell their story in front of a live audience at The Red Jacket Jamboree!
