Friday Night Open Mic

Thumbnail Theater has been hosting an All-Ages and Family-Friendly Mic since 2006 - one of the longest continuously operating community Open Mics in Snohomish County. We are known for a casual, warm, welcoming experience where people of all ages can perform on stage. The acoustics in the performance auditorium are excellent, and our audience and volunteers are supportive and enjoy supporting the arts community.

Friday Night Open Mic Guidelines:

  • All performers should arrive and sign-in between 6:30 and 7:15 pm.  Add-on performers not guaranteed if arriving after 8 pm.

  • All performances/content should be family-friendly and suitable for all ages.

  • Performers may sign up for the desired slot of choice at check in. Management reserves the right to make  adjustments as deemed appropriate/necessary.  

  • Our Open Mic is live performance only - No Tracks. We do have a number of musicians who can provide accompaniment upon request.

  • We are staffed by volunteers. We provide basic audio equipment including DIs, mics, stands, a bass amp, guitar amp, and a grand piano. If you have questions or wish to bring special equipment, please call in advance or plan to arrive no later than 7 pm to allow sufficient time to discuss and accommodate.

  • Suggested donation is $5.00. Thumbnail Theater is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your donations are appreciated!

  • Each "set" consists of 2 songs or 8 minutes per "Act." Your set time includes intros, banter, and performance.

  • Soloists, duos, trios, or ensembles are considered as one "Act".

  • Please support fellow performers by staying seated, listening, and applauding for their performance. If you need to exit, please do so between songs or sets.

  • No food or drink is allowed in the auditorium. We have hot and cold water dispensers, tea, and instant coffee available - donations appreciated.
