Theatre of Ted

11:00 PM | Bradbury Theatre

Theatre of Ted is an uncensored Open Mic Night Event which follows a simple principle: Dare To Suck! This is not "try to suck" or "aspire to suck," but rather a challenge to aim for the heights and possibly fail -- to take risks. To dare -- and maybe fall flat on your face, with a community of supportive friends to help you up. Every Theatre of Ted is your opportunity to come and perform. Anything you want! Just sign up and you're part of that evening's entertainment.

The only rules: 1. Don't damage the facilities or the people.

2. Clean up after your piece.

3. Make it short in case it sucks.

4. Enthusiastic Applause
