The Lion & Pirate Open Mic IN PERSON

January 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A woman in a power chair and a man seated in a folding chair each reach one arm toward the other. Both are smiling gleefully.

Join your friends from The Lion & Pirate in person for an afternoon of poetry, music, seeing old friends, and lots more! Dancers welcome (as you can see from the photo above of Amy and Juan performing an improvised piece at our October 2023 open mic)!

At this inclusive open mic, we’re open to work in any genre: music, spoken word, improv, skits, storytelling, dance, poems or prose… Anything you can perform!

Featured performers to be announced; then, it will be your time to shine! Sign up at the event. Contact us if you have questions about our sound set up.
