About the Event:
The #EPCooker is one of Akron’s hottest open mics. Started in the basement of a flower shop, it is an artist driven event that sees over 100 audience members, 30 performances and 6 non-stop hours of art. Most months include an art gallery, showcasing the talents of a local visual artist.
Sign ups to perform begin one-half hour (7:30 pm) before performances (8:00 pm) start. Anyone may sign up for a 10-minute slot.
An emcee, house drum kit and sound system (with operators) are provided. Jeff Klemm – lead singer of Maid Myriad and JCK and the Letters – is this month’s emcee.
ALL varieties of acts are encouraged to perform. Previous acts have included: monologues, acoustic musicians, play readings, comedians, experimental art, dancers, scenes from plays, improv, devised work, full rock bands and performance artists. But the sky is the limit; no art is too taboo for the #EPCooker!
ALL levels – from beginner to the most experienced – are encouraged to perform.
Those under 18 are permitted to attend (and perform!) with adult supervision.
The #EPCooker is not just an Open Mic. It is an open and welcoming community of artists. It is also a great networking event, a great place to improve stage presence and a great place to develop as an artist.
Pub Bricco has a full bar and a wide selection of food. Food and alcohol are permitted in the theatre.
