    Don’t Get Stung: The Mosquito is in Provincetown!

    Mosquito Story Slam Provincetown
    October 14, 2019

    Okay, so you don’t have to bring insect repellant when you go to the Provincetown Theater for Cape Cod’s famed slam story hour featuring your friends and neighbors’ stories—and maybe even your own!

    Inspired by radio’s famous Moth Story Hour, the Mosquito features a different topic for every event, so even if you’ve already been to one, there are new voices and new stories awaiting you!

    The Provincetown Theater is proud to continue hosting the monthly storytelling slam through the end of 2019. Dates for this autumn are on the second Saturday of the next three months: October 12, November 9, and December 14.

    Provincetown Mosquito Slam

    WHERE: Provincetown Theater, 238 Bradford Street, Provincetown, MA 02657
    OCT 12: “Road Trips, Wanderlust, and Getting Lost”
    NOV 9: “Should I Stay or Should I Go?”
    DEC 14: “Home for the Holidays”

    SIGN-UP: 6:30pm. Stories start at 7:00pm
    TICKETS: $15, and can be purchased at the box office, or in advance at

    Storytellers from the audience prepare a 5-minute true story based on the
    night’s theme. 10 storytellers are picked at random from the “mosquito net” to take a chance and “Bite It Live” on stage. Mosquito stories are told, not read. (Notes and props, however, are allowed.) Sign up early at the door. Special guest storytellers, musicians, and/or surprise hosts are likely–as is adult language and situations. There’s a cash bar in lobby, and drinks are allowed in the theater.


    The Provincetown Theater is owned and managed by the Provincetown Theater Foundation (PTF). A community arts institution, the Provincetown Theater is a 501c3 not-for-profit performing arts center, producing year-round entertainment. Sponsorship for the 2019 season is due to the generous support of Cape Air, Budget Blinds of Mid & Outer Cape, WOMR, 102.3 Dunes FM, Strangers & Saints, Fanizzi’s, Victor’s, Lobster Pot, Gabby Hanna of William Raivis Realty, Provincetown Inn, Surfside Hotel, P’town Bikes, Scott Allegretti, DDS, Provincetown Tourism Fund, David Schoolman Trust, and The Palette Fund.
