“Poetry in the Playhouse” for April 2013

Brush Creek Players announce “Poetry in the Playhouse” for April 2013

Brush Creek Players are pleased to add a new experience to the 2013 schedule – in celebration of National Poetry Month, Brush Creek is devoting a weekend to poetry, both original and classic works.

“Poetry at the Playhouse” will take place on April 19 thru 21, with performances at 7 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 2 pm on Sunday. This mic event will be hosted by local NW poet, Ariel. Admission will be $5.

“It’s something new for the Playhouse,” Ariel, a familiar face at the Playhouse, said. “But many of us here love poetry, and we welcome the chance to share that love with the community. And the Playhouse is a great venue to showcase the talented poets in our communities.”

Those interested in reading a poem or three (either original work or a classic in the public domain) at one or more of the performances should send a copy of the poem(s) with the subject line “Poetry” to BCPTheater@aol.com by Saturday, April 5. The host will review the piece to determine whether it is suitable for a family audience.  If one or more pieces are accepted, the participant will be asked to pay a $5 participation fee (but only once, even if reading more than one piece in all three performances).

The playhouse is located at 11535 Silverton Road NE (the intersection of Silverton and Brush Creek Roads) near Silverton, Oregon.
