Art House Productions has announced the first week of virtual community events, including a Story Slam! and Drag Bingo. Both events will utilize the online service Zoom, which is free for participants. In collaboration with No Dominion Theatre Co., Art House will host a free Virtual Story Slam! on Thursday, March 19 at 7:00pm EST. Harmonica Sunbeam will host live Drag Bingo on Friday, March 20 at 8:00pm EST.
Presented by Art House Productions & No Dominion Theatre Co., the virtual Story Slam! will feature live stories told by local performers that focus on themes we are all currently experiencing during this difficult time, such as fear of the unknown, finding human connection in a time of need, failure of technology when communication is vital, and endurance of the arts. We're thrilled to feature Nancy Méndez-Booth, Carrie Lee O'Dell, Ali Longo, and Michael Joel. The event will conclude with the opportunity for viewers to share their stories, too!
Join the staff at Art House and Jersey City's favorite Queen, Harmonica Sunbeam for a DRAG BINGO extravaganza this Friday, March 20th at 8:00pm EST! Harmonica will host 4 virtual rounds of BINGO using Zoom. Each round's winner gets a prize, PLUS the winner of the 4th and final round receives a CASH prize.
Bingo boards cost $10 each. As in regular bingo, you can use the same board for all 4 games or buy more to increase your odds. Boards will be emailed after registration. To register online, please visit: http://bit.ly/2Uicy8c. Registration closes March 20th at 5:00pm EST.
