The Wheeler Opera House has announced that it will present mixed genre performances in a new summer series called Sunset Sessions. Performances will feature great music, spoken word, comedy and more. The events will be presented in the newly designed Wheeler Bar Lobby stage—one of the best places to watch the sunset behind Aspen Mountain.
Locals are invited to attend (or participate in) a stand-up open mic night hosted by Aspenite comedian and winner of this year’s Laugh Fest Open Mic Night Beth Brandon. Brandon has been performing locally as a stand-up comedian and actress since 2006, and studied Improv and Sketch Writing at The Second City in Chicago. She writes a bi-weekly column for the Aspen Daily News titled “I Digress.”
There are 10-12 slots available for local comics to perform five-minute sets. Those interested in signing up can click here or call the Box Office at 970-920-5220.
