The Slam is back.
Story Slam, an event that sees attendees sharing five-minute stories, returns to an in-person event for the first time in months at 7 p.m. Friday, November 19 on the stage of the Olympic Theater Arts Center, 414 N. Sequim Ave.
The theme of the evening is “Almost”.
“Everyone is invited to put their name in the bag to share a five-minute true personal story on the topic, however you take it,” said organizer Jeanné Sparks.
“If your name is drawn, you take the stage to share. Of course, the event needs an audience, and everyone is welcome to come and listen, there is no pressure to be a storyteller.

Tickets are $ 10 at the door, available online at olympictheatrearts.org or by calling the box office at 360-683-7326 between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday.
The organizers ask participants to wear a mask and keep it on unless actively playing, eating or drinking in the OTA room.
