What is this show?
Tall Poppies is a show in which you (the audience) are invited to prepare a five to a seven-minute, true story, about yourself. The theme this time is whoops. We want your stories about fumbles, accidents, misinterpretations, and situations where you or somebody else made a big mistake that had an impact on your life. Stories can be funny, sad, strange, uplifting, any of these things as long as they are true and about you.
Inspired by the internationally acclaimed storytelling show The Moth, Tall Poppies is an opportunity for folks from all walks of life to craft and share a five to seven-minute gem.

Do I have to tell a story?
NO, most of the audience will just watch. But seven names will be drawn to share their stories and anyone who might want to tell a story is strongly encouraged to prepare one and give it a go!

Is there a prize?
Yes! There is a prize. There will be teams of judges selected from the audience at the start of the show. Each story will be scored (figure skating style.)

This week’s theme is: WHOOPS

How do I prepare a story? Good question! Here is some advice to get started:
- Use the broad theme of the evening to inspire memories of personal, life-changing experiences. Choose one of you most memorable and share the moments leading up to and after the experience.
- Humor is always welcome, but don’t feel obligated to be funny. True voices on stage are just as powerful as humour.
- Try writing it down to get it down to five minutes and to pinpoint the most crucial moments you want to include.
