Open Stage, Hill City Arts Council’s winter music showcase, ushers in each new year with shows in January, February, and March. In addition to livening up the local scene in the dark of winter, Open Stage gives new talent and seasoned acts alike a supportive place to hone their craft. It also helps local promoters find and hire performers for summer shows and festivals. Local and regional singer/songwriters and poets are regulars, but storytellers, dancers, jugglers, and joke tellers are welcome too. The audience’s free-will donations help support our scholarship program and art education grants for local kids.

Still haven’t been to Open Stage? We’ll do it again in 2019 with dates in January, February, and March. Stay tuned for more information!
