Oct 7 – Regina Word Up Community Stage ft Regina Slam Team

Admission is $10 + GST or PWYC (No one turned away.)
Doors at 7:30
Show around 8
All ages/+19 Cash Bar

Regina Word Up is held on the first, third and fourth Friday’s of every month. Regularly, the first Friday is a community stage, our third Friday is a poetry slam and our fourth Friday is a youth stage.

A community stage is an opportunity to share work with our community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for folks who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. Rants, stories, jokes (the punnier, the better!) songs, or poems are all welcome on our stage.

Have something you want to share that we didn’t list? We love creativity, and we would probably let you perform…just ask us!

There is a gentle time limit of 5 minutes per person to allow enough time for all of our community. If you have more to share than that, we will allow you another five minute block after everyone has performed, time permitting.

Audience members, come prepared with snapping fingers and a good pair of lungs, as always!
