In the summer of 1980, The Practical Theatre opened its first improvisational comedy revue -- "Bag O' Fun" -- at The Noyes Cultural Arts Center in Evanston.
Now, four decades later, The PTC returns to Evanston for a concert celebration of classic Practical comedy - featuring grown-up laughs, great live music - and a well-stocked bar!
Playing their third holiday run at Studio5 in three years, writer-performers Victoria Zielinski, Paul Barrosse and Dana Olsen anchor a "Big Holiday Bag O' Fun" - with music by jazz maestro Steve Rashid and his Studio5 All-Stars.
"Saturday Night Live" veteran Gary Kroeger and Evanston's own Rockin' Ronny Crawford set the beat for a bright young supporting cast, including recording artist Eva B. Ross, Giggle Break's Daniel Rashid, VEEP writer and stand-up Emilia Barrosse -- and newcomer Reilly Anspaugh! Also joining the cast this year will be internationally known jazz vocalist, Paul Marinaro.
"Big Holiday Bag O' Fun" combines classic Practical Theatre comedy sketches, newsworthy satire, and music better than you can imagine -- with Don Stiernberg on every stringed instrument known to man, bassist Brian Courage, and drummers Robert Rashid and Rockin' Ronny Crawford on all things percussion.
There will be a cash bar for all shows. Doors open for socializing and cocktails 30 minutes prior to showtime. The fun begins as soon as you get there!
