Welcome, rock opera creators! The BROS Rock Opera Big Bang is a hackathon-style workshop experience taking place on Saturday and Sunday April 1 and 2, 2023, with a showcase performance the following Saturday April 8. We're coming together for a fun weekend of pure creation, and to welcome the new BROS headquarters with a bang!
WE HAVE A CUTOFF OF 20 TOTAL PARTICIPANTS. WE RECOMMEND SIGNING UP EARLY TO GUARANTEE A FREE SPOT. If space is still available walk-ins will be accepted.
Teams of two or more will receive a simple, open ended prompt, and spend the weekend writing and composing a one-scene mini rock opera. This could be a standalone short story, or a scene from a larger concept. We'll match your scripts with a pool of actors, and reconvene Saturday April 8 to stage your creations!
We'll have experienced BROS available to help with creative roadblocks, tech challenges, and getting around the workshop, plus open shop hours through the week.
This will be a fun, no-stress opportunity to try out new skills and ideas. Let's make it happen!
Participation is FREE. All of your official team members get free admission to the April 8th showcase at BROS HQ (3304 Greenmount Ave, Baltimore, MD 21218) Admission on April 8th is $10 for the general public.
