When? 6:15 pm – 8:15 pm

The theme for the open mic night is MISCAST!

So prepare a song from a musical that you would never be cast as, whether it's because you are too old or too young, you're a different gender or different voice type.

Instructions: 

1. Pick a song that fits the theme
2. Find a good backing track - look on YouTube and Spotify and see what's available. If you want to accompany yourself that is also welcomed and encouraged!
3. Fill in this form (COMING SOON) to let us know you're interested and what you're singing
4. Come along and sing your heart out!

We look forward to hearing all of the amazing singing from our talented members! Also, feel free to come along just to support! 

Preparation for performers: 

  • Don’t forget to bring your singing voice and a backing track (just off YouTube or Spotify, nothing fancy).  

  • It will work better if people participating have a microphone but it is not entirely necessary. 

  • Headphones can help for listening to other people better as well.
