Cantab Recap For Wednesday, March 1st, 2023

This Wednesday, the line was long and the room was packed with Cantabbers ready to read, listen, and compete! It was another sold out night, which of course resulted in a very full open mic. Shoutout to our regularly-amazing regulars and the impressive set of newcomers this week – please come back soon!! 

After pieces from our lovely staff, we had another team qualification slam! It was close, but after an unexpected, tie-induced, 3-person final round, Meaghan Ford emerged victorious, partially thanks to their piece on how the flute section of the Star Wars theme had a permanent impact on them, even after the orchestra concert was over. Congratulations to Meaghan and runner-up Skylar Sweet Cheeks, who qualify for the Cantab slam team! 

This week’s ✏️Line(s) of the Wednesday✏️ is from our runner up, Skylar Sweet Cheeks:

“I’ve been watching the leaves change colors this season.
They’re beautiful,
before they fall to the ground.”

Next week: Come on over and bring your friends to see Lowell poet, organizer, and badass improviser Ricky Orng for what will be an amazing featured performance!!!
