Word Up! is a free, fun, festive word-based collaboration between audience and artist, hosted by Laura Z. This Mad Libs–style communal storytelling will feature a new performing artist every week, as well as special community guests from around San Diego. More of a gathering than a show or a class, Word Up! is a low-pressure opportunity for community members to connect with each other and with a new performing art medium each week.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. with music by DJ Miki Vale, and drinks will be available at Lady Carolyn’s Pub. The show starts at 5:30 p.m.
These events will also be simulcast for free through The Old Globe’s YouTube channel, so everyone can enjoy this exciting collaborative theatre-making event.
All Word Up! Live events are now general-admission with no tickets required. Guests will be seated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Schedule (all events are 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.):
