Old Town Playhouse in Traverse City presents An Open Mic Evening of Music and Spoken Word. Performances are July 15 and August 26 at 7 p.m. Tickets are free but must be reserved online in advance or acquired at the theatre before the performance if still available. Freewill donations are welcomed. Masks and social distancing must be observed.


This is a performance opportunity for singers, musicians, actors and poets. Sing your favorite torch song, recite original poetry, show off that guitar lick you’ve mastered or dust off a favorite monologue. Help Old Town Playhouse keep the arts alive in these unusual times.

Sign up and reserve your spot today by emailing office@oldtownplayhouse.com. Masks must be worn unless on stage and proper social distancing must be observed. Performances are limited to five minutes and must be suitable for the entire family.

Old Town Playhouse is moving outside with Theatre Under the Tent in the parking lot at 148 E. Eighth St. Seating will be limited to 75 to ensure social distancing. Bring your own chair or use one of the playhouse’s seats. This and other summer productions are MASKerAID events—masks must be worn, and ticket sales will aid the playhouse during this non-revenue crunch. If the performance is canceled due to bad weather, ticket holders will be notified by email and their ticket purchase will be refunded.
