The Theater Project, Maplewood’s professional theater company, welcomes performers to their Open Mike Night at The Highland Place Restaurant in Maplewood on October 28, at 7:30PM. Singers, singer-songwriters, musicians, poets, comics, actors -- performers of any specialty are invited – Everyone gets an opportunity to unleash their inner diva, try out new material in front of an audience, or just have fun.
“At previous Open Mike Nights we’ve hosted, I’ve seen even the most anxious performer end up having a great time on stage. Our audiences root for absolutely everyone. They enjoy seeing new talent and having a fun night out,” said producer Daaimah Talley.
Performers can sign in when the doors open at 7 PM; entertainment will begin at 7:30. A piano accompanist will be available. Performers should be sure to bring friends and family to cheer them on. The show is $12 admission per person with a 2-drink minimum for everyone. Food will also be available for purchase.
Proceeds will benefit The Theater Project, the professional company in residence at the Burgdorff Center for Performing Arts in Maplewood. Known for presenting outrageous comedy as well as drama with social commentary, the company tackled marriage equality, presenting a one-night-only reading of “8” by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. Their yearly holiday special, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: THE RADIO PLAY, will perform at the Burgdorff Saturday, November 30, at 2 PM.
