The Bee // Checkmate

The Bee // Checkmate

Join us for an evening of lovingly competitive storytelling; Ten storytellers picked at random from a hat have five minutes each to tell a true story on the theme of the night without notes.

The theme of the night this time is Checkmate: stories of surprise moves, worthy opponents, sudden endings, and the times you realized something was really, truly over.

Bring your friends. Have a drink. Laugh. Cry. Bee entertained.

6pm Doors. 7pm Stories. General admission seating / ADA Accessible. $15 / 21+

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, MARCH 29TH* @ 10:00AM (typically, tickets to our shows go on sale two weeks prior to the show on a Thursday, but this month it will be on a Friday instead!)

When purchasing tickets, you'll have the option of contributing an additional $10 or $15 to our Storyteller Scholarship Fund, which we use to support storytellers for whom the cost would be prohibitive to attend our shows and workshops. To make a larger contribution, click here.


DO YOU HAVE A STORY TO TELL? If so, fill out the form below ASAP to let us know! We always save a few tickets for storytellers in this predicament - but these are very limited so while we’ll do our best there are no guarantees!

WANT TO GET ON OUR WAITING LIST? Write to us and be sure to let us know how many tickets you're hoping for. Any saved tickets not claimed by potential storytellers will be released to our waiting list in the week prior to the show.


Do YOU have a story to tell? We want to hear it!

Fill out the form below and we'll send you some friendly advice for preparing to take the stage.

If the cost of tickets would prevent you from attending, ask about our volunteer and storyteller scholarship opportunities.
