    4/1: The Moth

    11-21-the-moth-horiz

    No foolin’, The Moth @ Fremont Abbey this month is on 1st Wednesday!  

    Abbey Arts presents The Moth StorySLAM – World renowned storytelling event & top arts podcast as heard on NPR!

    Normal schedule: 1st THURSDAYS @Fremont Abbey Arts Center / 3rd FRIDAYS @Bloedel Hall, St Mark’s on Capitol Hill  |   7pm doors, 8:00pm show, all ages, bar w/ ID, plenty of non-reserved seating available. Arrive by 7:45p to ensure entry.

    ADVANCE TICKETS:  Tickets go on sale through The Moth email system (sign up and select Seattle) and they do sell out fast. Usually about 1 week before the show.   Note: Premium tickets let you get in early and skip the big line but do not guarantee a seat if you’re not there at 6:45.

    WAITING LIST:  About 20-50 spots are typically available at the door ($10 cash only) and we have a convenient waiting list system for you.  Here’s how it works: Simply line up when you can (lines often start by around 6:15pm and then the waiting list goes up outside on the door promptly at 6:30pm.  Once you sign up, feel free to grab dinner as actual entry will be based on space available at 8pm only, so you have to be outside at 8pm as we read down the list until the venue is full.

    VOLUNTEER: Signup on the Abbey Arts email newsletter to find out other ways to get into The Moth such as the hard to get free Volunteer spots!

    SUPPORT: We serve local beer from Hilliards and Two Beers, Seattle Cider, and Washington wine from Wilridge Winery, plus a rotating cocktail often featuring local distilleries when possible.  This is a fundraiser event which means all bar profits tonight go to support the Greening the Abbey project to lower our carbon footprint and help make the building more sustainable and low cost for all it’s users.  Managed by building owners, Church of the Apostles.
