Shelter Skelter Storytelling Extravaganza Promises Laughter, Suspense, Drama and More



By John Wharton

No other experience fuels the feelings of anticipation, empathy, and satisfaction like sitting in the dark and hearing a fresh and mysterious story that magically seems created just for you. Come and enjoy a night of discovery and music with us as San Miguel’s storytellers share their personal tales.

Yes, it’s time for another edition of the Shelter Skelter Storytelling Extravaganza, with more stories from the heart of México! Producer Leslie Beam, creator of the San Francisco hit show, promises personal and fictional tales of comedy, adventure, drama, and even revisionist history.

With stories limited to 10 minutes, the show will move fast. Live classical guitar, a gentler-than-usual reminder to storytellers that their time’s up, promises to add a little class to the proceedings.

This event, on Friday, May 10, at 6 pm, is for one night only. Tickets are available at the Biblioteca gift shop, Tesoros, and online at


Every Tuesday at 7pm, Open Mic: You don’t need to perform, but if you want your 10 minutes of fame, then this is the place for you! This open mic offers a different group of amateurs and professionals each week. Locals call it the “Cheers Bar” of San Miguel. You can do (almost) anything you want for your 10 minutes. This year, some of your favorite performers will be hosting! The cost is 80 pesos for audience members and 60 pesos for performers. This price includes a free drink.

Shelter Theater is an easy 10-minute walk down from the Jardín. Visit for map, events, and online tickets. Send questions and comments to Find our logo on the Que Pasa map in the upper left-hand corner. Please respect our artists; no-show tickets may be released at showtime.
