No Shame

This program will be returning with the First Friday event series, starting February 2019! A movement in theatre that has been happening around the world since the 1980s. Think of it as an open mic night for the theatre with only three basic rules–that the work be original, less than 5 minutes long, and not break any laws. It’s so simple a child could do it…and has. At No Shame anything can happen and usually does. The full range of performance is open to you. On any given night you might see a poem, a dance piece, a puppet show, a monologue, a mime routine, stand-up comedy, a song, improvisation, jugglers, and a magic act–all followed by a delightful ditty on a hand saw.

It’s a place where you can take risks. Where you can dare to fail. Not because failure is your goal, but because you learn the most by attempting greatness, even if you don’t quite achieve it. No Shame is a place where fear of failure will not keep you from trying to succeed. It’s a place where the new becomes the now. Where something fresh out of your mind can be shared with an audience.

No Shame’s audience, performers, and writers are constantly changing roles in a single evening, fostering a spirit of cooperation, not competition. No Shame is different from other theatres because anyone can walk in the door the first night and participate in any way they choose. No Shame isn’t something you join; it’s something that by just being there you are already helping to lead.

Sign-up will be located in the Theatre lobby @ 6:00 PM prior to the performance, which will take place @ 7:30 – 9:00 PM each First Friday onstage. Please call 252-972-1266 for more information.
