The Wilma Theater invites you to join HotHouse Company member, Jaylene Clark Owens, as she hosts an Open Mic based on the themes of our current show, “Dance Nation”, by Clare Barron. Each Open Mic has a featured artist and this time it's the talented Sanchel Brown!

Participants who sign up in advance can see the show prior to the Open Mic for $10 (September 11-15, excluding Opening Night on Sept. 13) Those who cannot see the show are welcome to participate as well.

Whether you come to just listen or share,
