Members of the Georgetown Theatre Alliance gather for a happy hour and new play reading in NYC (August 2019).
Virtual Open Mic Night
Friday, 22 May 2020
8:30 PM ET
Following on the success of last month's Open Mic Night, GTA is excited to announce the next in a series of open nights. As artists everywhere continue to grapple with the impact of the current global health crisis on the performing arts and many people find themselves distanced from friends and family, the GTA is hosting another virtual open mic night to provide the Georgetown community with a place to gather and share some art. Join us with a song, a poem, a monologue or just your lovely self for an opportunity to be together.
The event is BYOB and BYOP(ets).
With arts venues and organizations around the world closed to support social distancing measures, performing artists have developed incredibly creative ways to share their work with the world and each other. One of the ways they have been doing so is by creating virtual festivals, like the Stay at Home and Social Distancing festivals, where people can view selections from rehearsal, live-streamed performances, and on-going series. Inspired by these festivals, as well as by the tradition of BTE's Coffee Houses on campus, the Georgetown Theatre Alliance is proud to launch a virtual platform for elevating the work of the Georgetown performing arts community: the Online [Off-Campus] Project.
The Georgetown Theatre Alliance (GTA) is dedicated to strengthening the connections among the theatre alumni community of Georgetown University. It aims to foster the professional, educational, and personal development of Georgetown students and alumni interested in theatre.
