Live auditions for trueCAMP

  • Northside Tavern 4163 Hamilton Ave Cincinnati, OH 45223 USA (map)

Everyone has a story to tell and we want to hear yours! Come join us Wednesday, June 19th, at the Northside Tavern to share a 5 minute version of your story idea for possible inclusion in our Season 9 finale, trueCAMP (which will be on Thursday, July 25th, at Memorial Hall).

OR JUST COME WATCH THE FUN! IT’S FREE! The stories will be shared in an open-mic fashion and the bar will be open. It’s like its own show… AND IT’S FREE TO COME WATCH!

For those of you pitching a story, you can sign up to pitch when you get there, but to guarantee your spot, contact us at or pitch by phone at (513) 463-TRUE.

To prepare your pitch, think of the true, personal, camp-themed story you would want to tell at the show, and dwindle it down to 4 - 5 minutes of captivating storytelling and blow us away! If you're chosen, you will then work with our Story Team to expand on your story for the 10-12 minute version you will eventually tell at trueCAMP!

Pitching a story at this event is not the only way you can be invited to be in the show, but it is the FIRST way and those who hesitate risk missing out on the limited spots!

We've compiled some answers to frequently asked questions about pitch nights here:, but one additional one you’ll need to know for this: we are not looking for campING stories, but CAMP stories (if there was a counselor or activity director, then you’re on the right track). We’ll gladly listen to any story you want to tell (for 5 minutes) at the Pitch Night, but for trueCAMP, we’re looking for camp-themed stories. If in doubt, just ask us!
