ABOUT THE EVENT:

The AWARD-WINNING Electric Pressure Cooker Cabaret is returning to a popular Akron hot spot – Aqueduct Brewing – for another month of "ANYTHING GOES" entertainment!

Through humble beginnings in the basement of a Highland Square flower shop, the #EPCooker is an artist driven event that sees over 100 audience members, 20+ performances and 6 non-stop hours of art.

Doors open and registration for performers begins at 7:00 pm. Performances begin between 8:00 - 8:30 pm. Anyone may sign up for a 12-minute slot. Performers may pre-register at watheatre.com/epcooker.

An emcee, house drum kit, keyboard and sound system (with operators) are provided. This month's emcees: Dynamic Duo Cody Stanley & Ryan Dyke.

ALL varieties of acts are encouraged to perform. Previous acts have included: monologues, acoustic musicians, comedians, feats of strength, play readings, experimental art, dancers, scenes from plays, improvisation, devised work, full rock bands and performance artists. But the sky is the limit; no art is too taboo for the #EPCooker!

ALL levels – from beginner to the most experienced – are encouraged to perform. Those under 18 are permitted to attend (and perform!) with adult supervision.

The #EPCooker is not just an Open Mic. It is an open and welcoming community of artists. It is also a great networking event, a great place to improve stage presence and a great place to develop as an artist. Storyteller Kyle Jozsa, Comedian Sarah Jones, Just Go With It Improv, Copper Pennies and many other acts premiered at the #EPCooker.

Aqueduct Brewing has a quality selection of craft beer, cider and food available for sale. Outside beverages are not permitted. Outside food is allowed.
