The Bee // First Date / Worst Date

  • Metro Music Hall 615 W 100 S Salt Lake City, UT, 84101 United States (map)
The Bee // First Date / Worst Date

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 First Date / Worst Date: stories of swooning and swiping right, un/pleasant surprises, in/compatibility, and the trials and tribulations of dating in the modern world.

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

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


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.


If you have a story to tell, fill out the form below asap (we always save a few tickets for storytellers and will fit you in if at all possible).

Tickets not claimed by storytellers will be released to our waiting list in the week prior to our show. Thanks to your overwhelming enthusiasm, our waiting list is already a mile long, so we won’t be adding any more folks to the list for this show.

Hope to see you at our March 14th show! Tickets for that event will go on sale Thursday, February 28th @ 10am. Mark your calendars now!


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.
