Once the performers listed below were finished, it seemed like the night would end early, but slowly and surely, many members of the audience decided to step forward and organically share their own art, making it one of our most fun events yet.
Youth Scene Open Mic performers:
Poetry: Monica Noelle, Jake Reilley, and Maddy Clara Brozusky
Music: The Revolution, Bobby Hunt, and Hunter Bertram
Comedy: Jillian Chiaro, Nick Chiaro, Ray Meoni, and Russell Austin
Storytelling: Mason Crawford
The Youth Scene Open Mic is held the first Wednesday of every month at Adezzo, and a second Youth Scene Open Mic is held the last Sunday of every month at Twigs Cafe in Tunkhannock. Sign-ups for both events are at 6 p.m., and 15 slots are available. Each performer is allotted 5-8 minutes at the mic. All ages are welcome to attend, and while no one who is over 21 will be turned away if they wish to perform, the focus of the night will be on the younger artists. Sign-ups are on a first-come, first-served basis, and the event will wrap up by 8:30 p.m.
Editor’s note: We respect the privacy of all artists and withhold publishing names and photos upon the request of any and all attendees.
