Open Mic Series at The Wilma Theater
In 2018 Jaylene started an Open Mic series at The Wilma Theater because she wanted to combine the theater and spoken word poetry communities in Philadelphia in her own unique way. These Open Mics are based on the themes of the shows at the Wilma each season.
Participants are encouraged to see whatever show is on the Wilma mainstage and then create poetry, artwork, or music inspired by the show to share at the Open Mic. Once all the open mic participants have performed, there is always a featured performance by a professional poet from the community.
Participants who sign up in advance can see the show at a discounted rate. Email to sign up and receive your code for $10 tickets!
Those who cannot see the performance are also welcome! A sign up list will be available at the door on the day of the event.
Whether you come to just listen or share, Jaylene hopes to see you there!
Suggested donation of $5.00 at the door.
