(Headliner) Prentice Powell :

With humility uncommon to those of like talent, Prentice Powell approaches every stage from Amsterdam to London and South Africa, knowing that he has a gift, yet allowing his performance to speak for itself.

Formerly host of the prestigious open mic Mouth Off Wednesdays in Oakland, CA. for six years, Powell is an educator, a family man, a writer, and an accomplished spoken word artist. He has been recognized as a National Slam Finalist, 2006 Oakland and San Francisco Grand Slam Champion, 2007 Spoken Word Artist of the Year by the Black Music Awards, 2011 East Bay Express Best Poet, and 2013 NAACP Image Award Nominee.

Powell has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Dr. Cornell West, Marsha Ambrosious, and along with his fellow Fiveology members, opened for Jill Scott during her 2013 Summer Tour.

He is the only poet to have appeared on all sive seasons of Lexus Verses & Flow with eleven episodes to his credit and recently became the first spoken word artist to land a reoccurring spot on the Arsenio Hall Show, appearing a record three times.

Prentice Powell's spoken and written talent is notable, considering that both adequately communicate the depth of his consciousness in rhyme. As a distinguished member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., he embodies the mentality of scholarship, fellowship, good character, and the desire to uplift humanity, all in the midst of continuing to define himself

About the Guild Theater

Est. 1915

The Guild Theater is a nonprofit theater managed by St. HOPE Academy, a nonprofit community development corporation whose mission is to revitalize inner-city communities through public education and economic development. Established in 1989 by NBA All-Star and Oak Park native Kevin Johnson, St. HOPE educates, trains and empowers citizens to change the landscaped of low-income areas, beginning with the Oak Park neighborhood in Sacramento, California.

The Guild Theater is the only remaining theater of the numerous early 20th century motion picture houses for which Oak Park was once known. Designed and financed by Joseph Lewis and completed in 1915, it was the largest of three theaters on 35th Street in Oak Park at that time. Originally called the Victor Theater, the building’s structure reflected the influence of the Moorish Revival on theaters of that era.

For many decades, the Guild Theater was a premier entertainment destination and in its earliest days played host to vaudeville shows. The theater eventually fell into a state of disrepair and remained vacant for many years. St. HOPE has updated and restored the Guild Theater in 2003 and currently showcases film, lectures and live performances.

The Guild Theater has been restored and renovated, but maintains its historic charm and is a perfect venue for corporate events, plays, concerts, trainings, movie screenings, weddings and more.

The venue has an open front lobby area with both a ticket counter and concession stand. The 200-seat theater has exposed brick interior walls showcasing contemporary art.
