Story City Troupe


The Buttonwood Tree is proud to host  Story City Troupe for a recurring “Moth Style” storytelling event. The audience is invited to participate to share a story of their own, by entering their name in to the hat. Their story does not need to follow the theme, although it is encouraged. One or two names will be chosen randomly out of the hat after SCT tellers are done, depending on the time.
Story City is a troupe of storytellers based in the Hartford, CT area and mentored by Matt Dicks, one of The Moth’s champion storytellers. Story City Troupe uses The Moth Formula: all are true, personal stories, often funny, sometimes amazing, poignant or ironic and based on a single theme for the evening. The troupe members range in age from their 20’s to their 70’s, proving you can come up with a good story at any age.
