Coffee House - Monday Evening
A special time to enjoy performances by seasoned performers. If you want to be in this one, plan to have something prepared.
Café - Late afternoons
On at least two afternoons during the week, we feature a special intimate performance by 2 or more group or individual performers. Each will do a short set in front of a smaller casual audience. Usually one of these cafes is done acoustically inside the beautifully resonant St. John's Cathedral.
Camp Show – Thursday Night
This is a night of anything goes - full of love and laughter. This is a great place to share skits, music, poetry, humor, dance...everything's welcome and at any skill level. Many people wait to decide to do this once they are at camp.
Open Mike at the Café - Wednesday 'Taste of Camp' afternoon
Traditionally on Friday, this year it'll be on Wednesday so that our guests will get an opportunity to perform if they'd like, to enjoy the great audience and ambiance that is a camp performance. We'll offer up open mike at Cafe (happy hour 4-5:30 PM). Everyone is welcome to sign up, but preference will strongly be given to our day visitors and those who have not performed at other times during the week.
Strolling / Background artists
Act as an accompaniment to parts of our day. Sing, dance, teach/perform yoga, read a menu aloud, dust off that band instrument or drum, share your favorite poetry, do birdcalls; pretty much anything that you'd love doing. If you are interested just jump in and play...or if you want help we may find other great ways to incorporate these moments throughout camp. (Note: you will probably be unamplified)
Block Party - Tuesday
This year we may have a 1860s block party on Tuesday and there may be space/time to perform. This could include performances of any kind of music appropriate to the era (Civil War songs, minstrel tunes, black spirituals, are some suggestions) or some sing-along time.
Moth Story Slam - Thursday afternoon cafe
Prepare and share a 5 minute story, based on a theme. Must be your own story to tell (it happened to you), stories should be told and not read.
This year's MOTH theme is ANCIENT HISTORY: Have something you wish never happened or that happened so long ago it's passed into infamy? Share your own mythic events. Prepare a five-minute story about something old, but don't borrow it, this has to be your own experience to share.
Host - Coffee House or Camp Show
Channel your inner Host or Hostess with the mostest and introduce acts at either of our big performances. (Bad jokes, singing and/or awful puns between acts are encouraged, but completely optional).
