Come join Chicago-Step Up Productions launch of the new comedy, Dead Accounts! Written by playwright Theresa Rebeck and directed by Jason Gerace, this comedic production focuses on themes of greed, small town values and the loyalty of family.
Jack has returned to his hometown of Cincinnati after spending several years in New York without telling his family. Upon his return, his mother and sister are demanding answers to his whereabouts while he was gone. Jack is soon consumed with questions: Is he in trouble? Where is his not-so-nice wife? Where did all of that money come from? Will Jack’s family soon know the answers, or will they continue to be left in the dark?
Partial proceeds from Dead Accounts will go towards a partner charity called Imerman Angels, a cancer support organization. Donation is a part of Step Up Productions’s mission and they donate to organizations around Chicago that support issues which are highlighted in its performances.
Dead Accounts runs from October 9 to November 2 at The Den Theatre, located at 1333 Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago. Showtimes are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. Tickets are originally $30 but are discounted to $17 with a current student ID. $20 dollar rush tickets are also available for purchase an hour before curtain. Tickets can be purchased here, and more information about the production can be found here.
Music and food! Now that I’ve got your attention, let me tell you a story about Robert Music and his horrible dinner party. In college, Robert was the lead of a rockin’ 80s band, full of life and ambition. But, as most bands tend to do, Robert’s college rock days quickly fizzled, leaving him forgotten. Lucky for us, Robert wants to play one last show. Follow the action as Mr. Music straps on his guitar, throws a terrible dinner party for his band, and relives his past on stage at the Gorilla Tango Theatre. My Dinner With Music runs through November 14. Stop by this website to purchase tickets today!
Have you ever wished you could be a part of theatre? I mean, really a part of the action? If you’re like me, you haven’t really felt comfortable getting up on stage and acting out a dramatic scene– however, the whimsical members of Chicago’s own Alice, would be more than happy to show you how to hop right into a theatrical life-style!
Beginning in the beautiful Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago, members from The Neo-Futurists, Striding Lion Performance Group, The Whiskey Rebellion Theatre, and many others will guide you through local landmarks, including Wooly Mammoth Antiques and Oddities as well as The Swedish American Museum.
Groups for each session will consist of 15 participants (form your groups now!) and will be led by a wonderful white bunny, creating a wonderland of fun for you and your teammates. Tickets range from $15-20 for the November 2 session. Click here to purchase tickets today! This event is a part of the Chicago Artists Month.
