Audition for My So-Called Jewish Life

Audition for the 9th(!) edition of Story District and Sixth & I’s “My So-Called Jewish Life”. A night of funny, poignant, powerful, and peculiar autobiographical stories about all things Jewish, not-so-Jewish, and wanna-be Jewish. Hear true stories about mikvehs, youth groups, orthodoxy, unorthodoxy, and more.

The show will take place on December 19 at 7:30 pm, at Sixth & I. Pitch your story to be in the show. If you are selected to be part of the show, you will be expected to participate in 4-6 rehearsals with Story District’s story coaches and to perform your 8-10 minute story. Honoraria of $100 for each storyteller.
