Next up at the Centennial Black Box Theater


Greenhouse is presented by Nashville Story Garden, a new monthly series allowing writers and actors to participate in the process of new play development. Writers are encouraged to bring their work (even just a few pages) and actors will read them aloud. There will then be a critical response process to the selections, giving writers a chance to hear thoughts on their work. All are welcome to attend and participate. Every second Monday of the month, 7-9 p.m.

Acoustic Pickin' Party

This is held every Tuesday evening from 7-8 p.m. in the CBB. Bring an acoustic instrument, join the circle and play along. All styles of music welcome, including originals. Great for ear training, developing chops, and learning new tunes. Relaxed environment similar to porch-sitting and pickin' with friends. Come with at least a couple tunes you'd like to play and an open mind. Ages 12 and up. Hosted by Mike Teaney, Metro Parks Music.
