Young people from the Gloucester community have planned a Youth Open Mic Night for those 18 years and younger to share their talents. The event is scheduled for Thursday, August 24, from 6:30 to 8:00 at the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church, 10 Church Street, Gloucester, MA.
The emphasis is to have fun in a safe, non-competitive space welcome to all. Please come prepared to share, to listen and to applaud.
Any act, performed solo, duo or in small groups, up to five minutes long is welcome. Performances may draw from a multitude of forms – spoken word, dance, music, song, skits, monologues, magic, poetry, comedy and so on. If you can dream it, create it and bring it!
The doors will open at 6:00 and performers may sign up for a spot starting at 6:10. Use the side emtrance at 10 Church Street. Doors open at 6:00 Sign-ups to perform start at 6:10.
