Your Stage At Any Stage: Open Mic Hosted By Michelle Klein

Your Stage At Any Stage: Open Mic Hosted By Michelle Klein
Calling all singers, poets, and storytellers, neighbors near and far, anyone with obvious or unshowcased talents...Hopewell Theater’s stage is yours!

In fall of 2021 we launched YOUR STAGE AT ANY STAGE, a monthly 90-minute locally curated performance showcase hosted by songstress and storyteller, Michelle Klein, of the beloved Peasant Grill.

Sign-ups are currently closed for December, but you can join us in supporting your neighbors and local talent as audience members by buying tickets!

The order of performances will be set at random on the night of the show by Hopewell Theater and Michelle in an effort to diversify the evening's lineup.

Open to all ages, however, children must have signed consent by their parent or guardian. Due to the popularity of this program, all acts must sign up in advance. All performers will be required to sign and abide by Hopewell Theater's COVID-19 Waiver and Health & Safety Protocols upon confirmation. All performers will be contacted by HT with additional details ahead of show to discuss technical requirements, arrival time, and expectations for the evening.

All performers receive free entry for the evening. Families and friends can purchase online (click “Buy Tickets” to the right), by phone, or at the Box Office ahead of time or the night of.

Performance time slots will be given as follows:
  • Music: up to 10 minutes
  • Comedy: up to 5 minutes
  • Spoken Word/ Storytelling/ Poetry: up to 7 minutes

Bill Ihling (Live Music - Solo)

After 35 years as a bassist and harmony singer in NJ, PA, and Midwestern bands, Bill answered the call of his “inner troubadour” in 2012 and began performing solo. Bill’s repertoire is multi-genre cornucopia of vaguely familiar covers that includes acoustic versions of 60s pop classics, 70s rock album “deep cuts,” old-school country favorites, the best of the Americana singer-songwriters, and “Great American Songbook” standards even your grandmother would enjoy.
