Its a live show-and-tell, and the winner gets a prize, explains Brian Colonna, who co-hosts the show with Erin Rollman. Anything goes. Most often what people do is tell a story, but people have brought in objects before journals; if you want to show a picture, you can; if you want to play music. Oftentimes, people sing or lip-sync. You just have five minutes, and its pretty wide open.
And they do adhere strictly to the five-minute rule, so dont go crying home to Mommy if you go long and get kicked off the stage.
This time around, the theme is Home for the Holidays: Family Traditions and New Years Eve Stories. Admission is $4 to $6, depending on your luck, and beer is included. Stop by Buntport at 7:30 p.m. to sign up; the tardy bell rings at 8. Buntport is at 717 Lipan Street; for information, visit www.buntport.com or call 720-946-1388.
