Speak About It is proud to announce our first shows, premiering at the Portland and Gorham campuses of the University of Southern Maine. Both shows will be on Tuesday, February 15th. The Portland campus will be getting impromptu monologues and skits, while the full show will be performed at 8pm in Gorham’s Student Center.
Typically, Speak About It has been performed as part of Orientation programming, but these two shows have been customized for USM. Targeting a more mature audience and encouraging students to submit their own monologues, this version of Speak About It will also be available to other institutions.
If you’re in the area, please feel free to drop by either performance and chat with the actors or organizers about the process. Stay tuned for a video of the show, to be uploaded afterwards.
