The Mayhem Poets Come LIVE to Baltimore Center Stage!
This is not your English teacher’s poetry.
With words, humor, and electric energy, The Mayhem Poets are on a mission to change the face of poetry. Blending comedy, hip-hop, improv, and spoken word, they take on life’s truths in a hilarious, fast-paced, interactive show that The New York Times calls “an amazing ride.”
On February 2 and 3rd, they’re coming to Baltimore Center Stage
. (Note: these performances are recommended for children ages 12 and older but all ages are welcome).
What can you expect at the performance? A dynamic collective off young performers that use meter, rhyme, and verbal dexterity like the poets of old—but there’s nothing old about their signature blend of hip-hop, theater, incisive pop culture references, and comedic social commentary. “Engaging, funny, and powerfully in tune with the real issues that students face each day, the Mayhem Poets impart a hip and positive message that inspires future generations of young people to study and write poetry in classical and contemporary forms, while embracing diversity, non-violence, and a strong sense of self.”
The production comes to Baltimore Center Stage as the third show in their Family Series
, which aims to expand theatre access to all ages of kids. Have younger kids? Make plans to see Havana Hop
