No Shame Theatre is located in Roanoke, Virgina, at the Mill Mountain Theatre, whose address is 20 Church Ave, Roanoke, Virgina.
It is part of Underground Roanoke, and part of the nightlife at Roanoke. It occurs every Friday at 11 PM, but if you want to sign up for an act, show up at 10 PM. It costs $5 to attend, and upon your first attendance, you will get a card which is used to mark off 4 times you attend. On the 5th time, you get in free, and start the process all over again (I think I got that right).
All of the works presented are original, and if not original, require permission to be performed (since they're making a profit (or at least they think they are)).
If your work is over 6 minutes long, the lights blink, which means "get the fuck off the stage!!!!!!!!!!!!!".
No Shame Theatre at Roanoke is probably the same as any other No Shame, except that it's a lot worse (meaning funnier and hence awesome). The headline content of No Shame are the skits written and performed by people who spend time writing 5 minute skits (meaning they were created in 5 minutes), but there's a lot more to it than that.
The few times that I have attended, there has been a person who reads poetry, a person who plays guitar, or a person who tells a story.
One time a woman (this was her first time at No Shame) was inspired by someone else's story, and stood up and proceeded to tell her life story. It was interesting, and a bit sad, and they blinked the lights at her.
Although I have bashed it a little, I love No Shame Theatre, and wish I could attend more.
I have yet to perform something, and when I do, I'll let everything know.
