The Lemonade Fund is a confidential resource for theatre practitioners with terminal or life-threatening illnesses who are in need of supplemental financial assistance to improve the quality of their lives as they deal with medical conditions. Since 2000, Theatre Bay Area has distributed over $100,000 through the Lemonade Fund to theatre workers in need throughout the Bay Area, much of it made possible by generous donations by fellow artists.
Theatre Bay Area’s mission is to unite, strengthen, promote and advance the theatre community in the San Francisco Bay Area. The ISC (Individual Services Committee) is the working advisory group for TBA’s individual membership that often acts as a sample focus group and resource for Theatre Bay Area on issues concerning the individual membership of Theatre Bay Area. The San Francisco Theater Pub seeks to be a leader in bringing the Bay Area indie theater scene together to create, converse and collaborate in casual venues that break down the barrier between artists and audiences.
What better way to unite all these great organizations than with an open mic where our best and brightest get to strut their stuff?
The show is on December 13th- as in Friday the 13th!- so we’re hoping to put together a night of 5 minute acts that can range from singing a song to performing a monologue, a short play, sketch or improv, dance- whatever you can fill that time with and that you can bring ready made the night of the show (think of it as open-mic night at your local pub, but on an actual stage)! It’s a great opportunity to try some new work out, reveal a hidden talent, or just practice your cabaret act, and the money we raise at the door goes to keeping theater and theater makers in the Bay Area healthy!
Performers- Please contact Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you’d like to bring to the mix. Space is limited so don’t wait to sign up!
Audience- the show starts at 8 on the 13th at the Exit Theatre (156 Eddy Street)! No reservations required and admission is a $10-20 recommended donation at the door! Come support our local theater artists! See you there!
