An open mic experience that is both intimate and communal. We start off the evening socializing. It is this aspect that sets us apart: the intimacy factor. We gather in a comforting space with good food and drink (yes, that includes wine, cheese, and chocolate). We listen to great music and get to know each other. Many great conversations happen.
We then fire up the spotlight and perform for each other. It is like going to watch a really great variety show, except the performers are all your friends and you don't need back stage passes to talk to them afterwards.
Our stage is open to any art from. On any given night you can expect to hear poetry, music, storytelling, monologues, stand-up comedy...anything your imagination can dream up!
$6 Cover. $4 Beverages. Check out the Open Mic's Youtube Channel!
Authors' Night Out (2012-2013)
A warm, supportive and inspiring environment for new and established authors to workshop their material. Regular attendance is strongly encouraged so that we develop a group identity and build bonds of trust around what is typically a solitary and somewhat isolating activity. Material to be workshopped should be submitted to the Lyceum well in advance of the assigned meeting so that copies can be made and distributed to group members. It is Christianne’s wish that diversity of literary forms and genres be embraced and celebrated by the group.
A glass of wine (or courage-boosting beverage of your choice), light snacks and a literary rich environment will keep the creative juices flowing.Ages: Adult Writing Group
