Listen to This: Stories in Performance, a monthly storytelling series hosted by local actor/comedian Tom Chalmers, has announced the theme for its May installment. On May 28, 2015, a brand new slate of true stories will be presented on the theme “It’s My Party and I’ll Die If I Want To: Fond Memories of Funerals, Wakes, and Memorials.” Curtain is at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $15.00 and are available online at ashevilletheatre.org, by phone at 828-254-1320, or in person at the ACT Box Office.
A storytelling format in the vein of “The Moth” or “This American Life,” Listen to This has become one of Asheville’s most popular monthly series. Each month, Tom Chalmers picks a topic and presents a lineup of locals, all sharing stories or songs on that central theme. Some are funny, some are surprising, and some are frightening – but all are enormously entertaining.
