Open Mike Night in Thessalon is Friday, May 13: It’s your bad luck if you miss out.

The ever-popular Open Mike night, an event SiN likes to describe as “a talent show of a different sort”, takes place Friday, May 13 downstairs at the Royal Canadian Legion in Thessalon. Start time is 7 p.m.

Open Mike is Friday May 13th in Thessalon.

Open Mike is Friday May 13th in Thessalon.

There are still openings in each of the four categories; Poetry, Music & Lyrics, True Stories and Fiction.

In the music category, we’ll accept song parodies.

Call Pauline Clark at 705-842-3132 to register. Cost to enter is $5.00 and you may enter more than one category.

Audience members pay $7 at the door.

There will be a maximum of five entries in each category. If numbers are short in a particular category, SiN reserves the right to add more entries to another, more popular, category to round out the show. All works must be performed live and must be original. Each contestant gets five minutes to strut their stuff. Run over the time limit and we’ll pull you off the stage. (Don’t worry! We’ll make it fun. Though we do recommend you practice before the show, stopwatch in hand.)

Once every participant in a category performs, the audience will have the opportunity to vote by secret ballot for their favourite. (That’s why it’s a great idea to bring lots of friends!) Ballots will be counted and winners will be announced at the end of the evening. The winner in each category receives a $50 cash prize. There’ll also be a door prize or two.

If you know of someone who’d like to be a sponsor for one or all of our contestant cash prizes, please be in touch. SiN will promise lots of name-mentions and our forever thanks!

The Open Mike Night is always a blast as we gather to entertain and be entertained. You’ll be amazed.

The Legion bar will be open during the event. Light snacks and coffee will be available.

Mark it on your calendar now! Or just remember; Friday, the 13th!
