Art House Productions Connects With Audiences Through Virtual Community Events

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!

At 7:00pm EST, those wishing to participate should click this link to join via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/102363230. Admission is free. Suggested donation $5; donations will be accepted online: http://bit.ly/3a7Q5S4.
