TUNKHANNOCK — Budding authors from the Dietrich Theater Writers Group will be featured during Open Mic on Friday, Sept. 25 at the theater.

All are invited to come hear excerpts from works in progress that may be seen on bookshelves some day. Five writers who are honing their craft at the Dietrich Theater’s Writers Group every Thursday evening will share their stories with the Open Mic audience, giving them yet another way to receive input by way of the audience reaction.

Open Mic is a free event at the Dietrich Theater, held on the fourth Friday of the month from March through October. Musicians, writers, comedians, and performers of all types are invited to share their talents on the Fassett Performing Arts Studio stage. Doors open for sign-ups at 6:30 p.m. and the performances begin at 7 p.m. The evening begins with the new performers and continues with the featured guests.

Past performers included a ventriloquist, storyteller, comedian, poets, a variety of musicians from keyboardist to guitarist and more.

The event is appropriate for all ages. Host Angelo Maruzzelli aims to make sure everyone is comfortable, appreciated, and encouraged and Mary VanVliet makes sure all the technical demands are in order and everyone is signed up and knows the format.

For more information, call 570-996-1500.
