Mayhem Poets

Student Matinee Series Mayhem Poets

  • Monday, December 2, 9:30am & 12pm
  • MainStage Map It
  • Grades 4-12

  • $8.50.

This dynamic collective of young poet-performers use meter, rhyme, and verbal dexterity like the poets of old—but there’s nothing old about their signature blend of hip-hop, theater, incisive pop culture references, side-splitting social commentary, and out-of-sight imagery. Engaging, funny, and powerfully in tune with the real issues that students face each day, the Mayhem Poets impart a hip and positive message that inspires future generations of young people to study and write poetry in classical and contemporary forms, while embracing diversity, non-violence, and a strong sense of self.

Links to poetry, personal choices, self-esteem, self-expression, celebrating differences, voice.
