April is National Poetry Month and CC is kicking it off in style with a community-wide Classic Poetry Slam Tuesday, April 2nd at The Main Event! A poetry slam is unlike any poetry event you’ve ever attended! Poets have three minutes to perform original poetry to a panel of Celebrity Judges who then score them on a scale of 1 – 10. If they go over three minutes the bell will ring! Top scorers move on to the second round and the final four go into the final round for the Grand Prize of $150prize. There will also be a second place prize of $100 and a People’s Choice Award prize of $50!  Here’s what you need to know!


Sign up is between 6:00 and 6:30 at The Main Event, max 16 participating poets. Poets must be 18 years or older and must have ID if under 21. You’ll receive a stamp on your hand to signify your “underage for drinking.” You must bring three original pieces no longer than three minutes otherwise the whistle blows! No phones or props on stage though you may bring up printed pages of your poem. Judges score from 1 – 10 with the lowest and highest score eliminated before your total score is placed on the board. The top half move on to the second round. The final round includes the top four scorers of the night. There will be a first place cash prize, a second place cash prize and a People’s Choice winner! Your admission is $10.00 at the door, cash.
