The Moth Mainstage

City Opera House
106 E. Front Street,
Traverse City, MI 49684
Following a 2016 sellout The Moth Mainstage returns - new theme and new tellers. The Moth Mainstage is true stories, told live and without notes. The Moth Mainstage celebrates the ability of stories to honor both the diversity and commonality of human experience, and to satisfy a vital human need for connection. It seeks to present recognized storytellers among established and emerging writers, performers and artists and to encourage storytelling among communities whose stories often go unheard. Each curated event features five wildly divergent tellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. Beyond theater, The Moth Mainstage is a community where entertainment and enlightenment merge. The Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour features The Moth’s most beloved tellers, chosen from across The Moth’s programs, and explores the stories behind the stories. Each hour mixes humorous and heartbreaking tales told with honesty, bravery and wit. The show is produced by The Moth and Jay Allison at Atlantic Public Media and presented by PRX, the Public Radio Exchange and can be heard weekly on Interlochen Public Radio (IPR).
