Gong Show at Sleepy Creek

Come laugh at your friends, family and complete strangers at our open mic night inspired by the 80's TV show.  The judges, characters from our "Up the Creek" webseries, will be judging the performers as they strut their stuff on our stage.  The performers (maybe you?) will get up to 6 minutes to entertain.  If the judges are unanimously unimpressed, our lovely hostess Charlie will escort you off the stage.  Want to perform?  See our Facebook event and then email Kayla at for a spot at least 24 hours in advance of the show.  Due to our overwhelming popularity, the show is now $5 per person, unless you are a performer. Please make a reservation by calling with a credit card, stopping in or purchasing online. A portion of the proceeds will go toward prizes for the winners and development of future shows.  Thank you for making last year's Gong Shows a success!
