Louder than a Bomb MA Showcase

May 6, 2016 at 6:30 pm9:30 pm

Strand Theatre 543 Columbia Avenue Dorchester, MA 2125 United States

The annual Louder than a Bomb Massachusetts Youth Poetry Slam Festival Finals Showcase will be taking place at Boston’s historic Strand Theatre on Friday May 6th. In partnership with the Boston Cultural Council & Boston’s Office of Arts & Culture, Mass L.E.A.P. (Literary Education & Performance) presents an evening of powerful spoken word poetry performances from teens throughout the state, as we crown a state championship team, showcase brilliant young writers and honor award winners. The showcase is the culminating event of a month long festival that helps create spaces for youth to raise their voice! Modeled after the revolutionary Chicago festival, Louder than a Bomb is celebrating it’s 5th year of working to bring young people together across socio-economic, geographical & cultural lines.

Poetry slam competitions are unique experiences. This poetry game where “the points aren’t the point” draws judges from audience. They’re engaging, interactive, word musicals. Numerous tickets will be made available to youth groups. Pre-show will allow public to learn about youth poetry through community tabling, meet & greet with Boston spoken word poets.

Purchase Tickets

Tickets are required. However, a number of free youth tickets will be made available to the public. Please contact Alex Charalambides for more information via email:
