Hey there, sailor! Got a story to tell? The Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport and The Colonial Theatre in Belfast are teaming up to host “Salted Tales: stories from the sea told live” on Sunday March 29, from at 3:30 p.m to 6:30 p.m. at the Colonial on High Street.
Organizers continue to look for story tellers from the world of the merchant marine, navy, working sailing, or anyone with a really good sea story. The accent is on working sea stories but yachtsmen are invited as well. Please share this invitation with anyone who may be interested in telling their story.
This event is modeled on the “Moth Radio Hour: stories told live” which is heard on the web and public radio. The format will include ten story tellers and each will get exactly 8 minutes to tell their tale, no more and no less.
Please let sailors and people who have made their lives on the sea know about this event. We’ve already got a great line up of people who have worked on tankers, tugs, freighters, and sailing ships but need more folks so please share and pass the word.
Refreshments will be offered at intermission. For more information please contact Mike Hurley 207-338-1975 and firstname.lastname@example.org. How do you know it’s a real sea story? It starts, “And this is no #@%^!”
