Open Mic
Monday, September 10, 2018 - 7:00pm

HotHouse member Jaylene Clark Owens will hold the first in an ongoing series of Open Mics based on the themes of the shows in The current Wilma Theater season. Participants are encouraged to see the show during the first week of performances (Sept. 4-9) and then create pieces inspired by the show to share at the Open Mic. Pieces can include poetry, artwork, or songs inspired by the themes of Kill Move Paradise including: Found family, cycles of history, and Black redemption. Pieces do not have to be limited to the themes listed here.

Each Open Mic will also have a feature. Our first feature is Kirwyn Sutherland. He is making his return to The Wilma Theater after having been featured at Jaylene's HotHouse Crush Open Mic. Everyone is encouraged to attend, whether you want to share something or just listen. If you are not able to see the show before the Open Mic, but already have a piece related to the theme, you are welcome to share. The open mic is open to the public with a suggested donation of $5 at the door.  

If you are interested in participating in the Open Mic contact Jaylene Clark Owens at JCO@JayleneClarkOwens.com. A sign up list for the Open Mic will be available at the door on the day of the event as well.
