What better way to spend your night than reading your cringe-worthy teenage diary to a room of complete strangers? Cringe night is returning to ArtHaus on Saturday, April 8, from 7:30-9:30pm!
So many of us had written about our difficult, crazy, messed-up, horrible, and wonderful teenage experiences in our beloved and oh-so-secretive journals. Maybe you have read them recently or maybe they are buried under high school sweaters in the back of our closets--either way, there is sure to be some entries where, looking back, we laugh and wonder how we could have thought this. We invite you to share those embarrassing entries to people you have never met!
Similar events have taken place all over the country from Seattle's Salon of Shame to Chicago's Mortified Live, blending comedy, therapy, and community-building into a laughter-filled evening.
We welcome accompanying photos and props--the best way to imagine just how awkward your sophomore year homecoming is through pictures, after all. As this event is BYOB for those over 21, it is recommended for ages 16+.
Hosted by local author June Melby and sponsored by Nordic Chiropractic, this event is $5 ($3 for students) to benefit ArtHaus' creative programming and public art events. Expect laughter and understanding (and a few tears) from the audience while you divulge the very secrets your angsty, junior high self would be ashamed to share! One thing's for sure--it's cheaper than therapy!
Participation is open, but slots are limited. Those interested in reading their entries aloud are encouraged to come early. Doors will open at 7:00.
