There are two ways to enjoy Buntport Theater's Teacher's Pet, which is probably the most unusual open mike you'll ever attend: You can sit back and watch, only to wield your thumbs up or down at the end of the evening, or you can take the stage for a carefully meted five minutes of soul-searching on a theme, during which you can tell a story in whatever way you choose.
Buntporters like to call the evening, which rotates on third Tuesdays throughout the year with Pecha Kucha and Buntport Versus, show-and-tell with homework. Tonight, said theme is "Brush with Fame" (surprise encounters with "celebrity"). We all have at least one.
So what's it gonna be? Will you bare your soul and compete for the top prize? If so, arrive early at 7:30 p.m. to sign up for your five-minute slot and brace yourself. If not, the show starts at 8 p.m., hosted, with antics, by Buntport funny folks Erin Rollman and Brian Colonna. Buntport Theater is at 717 Lipan Street; admission is $4 to $6, determined by a roll of the dice. For details visit Buntport online or call 720-946-1388.
