Storytelling Returns to The Buttonwood Tree


Story City Troupe is online!


November 6, December 4 ...    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm 

We’re now on ZOOM!
Sit back and relax to a fascinating adult style story time!  These tellers are proficient at storytelling and will truly delight and entertain you. Mike Isko emcees the event which has a different theme every month.
The Buttonwood Tree is proud to bring back the amazing tellers of the Story City Troupe for a recurring “Moth Style” storytelling event now online, on FIRST FRIDAYS. Reserve your tickets here!
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.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll identify!


This group is led by Sue Huggans and welcomes new members. Do you have a story to tell?

 Mike Isko:
Since taking Matthew Dicks beginner storytelling course in 2015, the veteran public defender, married father of two, has been telling stories about his foibles and family. As a member of Sue Huggans’ Story City Troupe you can hear Mike tell stories at The Buttonwood  Tree Art Center in Middletown the first Friday of every month when there is not a global pandemic. He has also told at a number of SpeakUp Story Telling events, at Saul Fussiner Songs and Stories at the Next Door, New Haven and is now thrilled to be a part of the New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas.
