LOL Poetry

Victoria Dym has two gifts for you in this Poetry Month Special Edition of OLLI Connects: a new poem and an opportunity for an enjoyable night out.

We all know that poetry can be emotionally powerful, eliciting feelings of love, loss, despair, and wonder. We often forget that it can also be a hoot. Just ask Normally-Mr.-Serious A.E. Housman. Or the quirky Roald Dahl.

Let’s talk about her opportunity to have some fun with poetry first.

Poetry: On the Lighter Side

Thursday, April 25, 2024 – 7:30 p.m.

What happens when local poets give a reading at a comedy/improv venue? Poetry On the Lighter Side! A poetry reading that illuminates the lighter side of life! We are looking for giggles and guffaws at the Commodore Theater. A showcase of literary LOLs and teeth! Those at the microphone will share their curated funny, ironic, and/or sarcastic works. Join Victoria Dym, your host for a night of poetry reading/performance and improv, her two favorite passions.”

Because you’re an OLLI member, you can get in for half price, if you buy your ticket in advance and use the discount code “POEM”. Oh, and parking is free.

To get your ticket to an experience you’ll remember for a long time, just browse to ThunderTix.


Did we also mention a new poem? Why, yes, we did. And we’d love to share it with you here and now. Honest! Cross our hearts! But it’s one of the highlights of our April 29 issue, so you’ll just have to wait a bit.

Trust us. The wait will be worth it.
