Open Mic Nights - June 20th & July 18th after the show!
Open Mic Nights are free and open to the public. Tips for the pianist are encouraged! Come to the show and stay or come on over after the performance (around 10:20pm/10:30pm). We will provide an accompanist. Bring your own sheet music or flip through ours. Come to sing or come be an audience and cheer on our singers. Open Mic Nights are BYOB.
What looks like incredible chaos is actually organized chaos. Phenomenal musical numbers include AQUARIUS, GOOD MORNING STARSHINE, I BELIEVE IN LOVE, HAIR, I GOT LIFE and WHAT A PIECE OF WORK IS MAN. This show has a vitality, a timelessness and a meaning that outlives the late 1960's and early 1970's in America. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
