Open Mic

Do you dream of being center stage? Here's your chance!

Blumenthal’s Open Mic invites local performing artists of all experience levels to perform on stage. Instrumentalists, singers, dancers, storytellers, poets, jugglers, magicians, and all other performers are welcome! We accept performers and spectators of all ages.


Interested In Performing?

How Do I Register To Perform At Open Mic?

Due to great interest, we have implemented a lottery system to select performers. To receive sign-up information for future lotteries, join our e-mail club or send questions to openmic@blumenthalarts.orgYou can also check for information on the Open Mic Night event pages.

Two weeks before an Open Mic event an email will be sent that includes a link to submit your request to performance. Those who have submitted a request to perform will be informed 8 days before the event if you’ve been selected. If you’re not selected to perform for the upcoming event, feel free to attend as an audience member and cheer on your peers! Consider re-submitting your act for a future Open Mic!
