About Truth Be Told Story Slam

Truth Be Told Story Slam was founded in February of 2013 in Boulder, Colorado by Nina Rolle and Johanna Walker, two performing artists who were inspired to create an ongoing performance series featuring true stories, well-told. A Boulder favorite since its inception, Truth Be Told has consistently played to sold-out houses, moving a community of fellow storytellers and story lovers to bring more stories into the world and onto the stage.

Truth Be Told invites audience members to enter their names in the hat with the hopes of being selected to tell a 5-minute, true-life story on a pre-determined theme. For each slam,  Nina rounds up a handful of the area’s best musicians to create an ad hoc house band. With Johanna Walker interspersing stories throughout, they devise musical medleys based on the evening’s theme, creating a one-of-a-kind event.

Truth Be Told can be customized for your company or community. Nina and Johanna will draw a personalized story theme from a slogan, a principle, or even an inside joke specific to your community. 

Nina is a storytelling coach who can help you find your story, craft it, embody it, and tell it with confidence and glee.
