Naturally, there will be free Saint Cupcakes served at intermission!

How it works: Russian Roulette begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive 50 bucks and some other cool prizes from our sponsors totaling around $200 and, like, bragging rights for life. The winner will be invited to come back to the next show! And a lucky audience member will win over $100 of prizes as well!
