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!
"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, 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!
