THE MISSION:  The mission of Rose of Athens Theatre’s weekly performance opportunity, No Shame, is to provide a supportive environment for creators and performers to try stuff out. No Shame encourages risk-taking and fearlessness. Partnering with Hendershot’s, Athens’ hippest family Coffee-Bar-Café, No Shame is a weekly performance event that is exciting, raw, and addictive for both audience and artist. You can perform ANYTHING created by you or a friend.
