Everyone probably has at least one good story and CKLU 96.7 Radio is hosting a live storytelling event called This Is My Story at Sudbury Independent Cinema on June 1. 

One after another, each storyteller will pull back the curtain on an incident in their lives. Whether funny, suspenseful or life-changing, all stories will be absolutely true and told by the person at the centre of the story. It promises to be a night to remember.

Emcee is former CBC Radio and CTV news anchor Peter Williams. The stories he’ll introduce have a wide variety of themes: “The Phone Call that Changed my Life”; “Pillsbury Dough Girls”; “Meeting my Idol”; “Stranded”; “Three days in the Bush”; “Stand Up Comedy: The Cure for Self-Esteem”; “Green Acres” and “The Garbage Dump Attack.”

Sudbury.com’s own Jenny Lamothe is the storyteller behind “Pillsbury Dough Girls.” Some storytellers may be familiar and others new to the audience, but all have been carefully selected, curated and invited to entertain by CKLU.

Tickets are $25 and available on eventbrite.ca, cklu.ca or in person at Jett Landry Music 1119 Lasalle Blvd. (cash only) Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Curtain time is 7 p.m. The Indie Cinema, 162 MacKenzie St., offers an array of movie-house treats and beverages, including wine and craft beer.
