All are Welcome!!
ROM suspended its live meetings in the spring of 2020 due to the pandemic. We hope to begin meeting again in person as soon as feasible. In the mean time...
ROM meets on Zoom the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, 7pm-10:30pm
Our Golden Rule is “All are Welcome!!” We want a place to listen, a place with a non-judgmental, supportive audience, that appreciates the diversity of our performers, from beginners to touring professionals.
Everyone should be treated with kindness and performers are encouraged to use their screen time to grow as a performer. Everyone is expected to listen politely to their fellow open mikers.
Supportive comments on Zoom are welcome.
We are all on a journey with a wide range of goals and aspirations. We seek to help our caring community continue to thrive.
In remembrance of
"In the words of a wiser man, life's what happens when you've other plans"
- Chris Lee
