Open Stage

Bold & New experimental improvisation.

Think of Open Stage as an open mic night for improvisors. An evening dedicated to the art of exploration and innovation where seasoned improvisors and students alike take the opportunity to explore fresh ideas and new directions.

It’s a chance to test the rules in order to create new ones. A time to abandon the tried and true approach and push beyond the boundaries. Fearlessness is encouraged. Inspired experiments unfold. Challenges develop.

Once a month for six months the Courthouse Hotel plays host to this creative melting pot. Each show has a series of acts selected on the basis of their inventiveness, creativity and vision and whether you’re a player or an audience member it’s a risky, fun and unpredictable road trip into the creative unknown.
