NIGHT LIFE

When the sun goes down, SUUSI wakes UP!

Whether it is music, dancing, food, or conversations over coffee, SUUSI nightlife has something for everyone!

MUSIC

cabaret 2Concert Hour: Monday to Wednesday, evey night from 8-9pm we are privileged to enjoy a concert from a professional touring musician. Find out more about this year's Concert Hour performers here!

Cabaret: Cabaret is our nightly live music venue. It’s an intergenerational, multi-faceted, mixed bag of evening entertainment. All of the Cabaret performers, amateur and professional alike, are from our own SUUSI community. It’s about musicians, poets, actors, dancers and instrumentalists. In short, it’s all about YOU! To sign-up to perform at Cabaret, be sure to stop by the Nightlife table at check-in on Sunday or during Cabaret throughout the week!

Sunday night is the start of Cabaret with our Open Mic night directly after Ingathering. You can share a song, dance a dance, recite a poem, tell a short story or a joke. You will need to sign up in advance for this, but it is easy to do at the Nightlife table at Check-In on Sunday. Poets, actors, singers, dancers, young, old, small, tall—all are welcome.

Monday through Thursday – 9:00-11:30pm

Do you want to perform at Cabaret during the rest of the week? Many of those who perform on Sunday night at the open mic will be asked back to do sets during Cabaret on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening. Each night’s schedule will be listed in the daily NUUS and posted outside the auditorium.

Friday: Jamboree – 9:15-11:15pm

Another fine SUUSI tradition, Jamboree is a special performance time where two or more folks who have never performed together before do so for the first time on the Cabaret stage. It’s also the time when workshops and classes get to perform. It’s amazing what can get pulled together in less than a week!

Where’s everyone going? It’s only midnight! Beginning at 12am and continuing until the wee, wee hours, Late Night  is definitely worth staying up late for! If you can’t get enough music, either as a performer or audience member, check out our alternate performing space.  You’ll be able to play with, sing with, or listen to other musicians on campus. All you need to do is show up!
