Studio5 & The Practical Theatre Company present two nights of comedy and music!

The Practical Theatre is back with a classic radio show featuring grown-up comedy, great live music, and spectacular handmade sound effects! Plus adult beverages! Join the fun as the PTC records two shows at Studio5 Performing Arts Center in Evanston for later broadcast on Chicago’s premier jazz station WDCB 90.9 FM.

Following their smash holiday engagements the past two years at Studio5, writer-performers Victoria Zielinski, Paul Barrosse and Dana Olsen return with Practical Radio Theatre on the Air, featuring music by Steve Rashid and his Studio5 All-Stars (Don Stiernberg, Jim Cox & Robert Rashid), with special appearances by Giggle Break’s Daniel Rashid, vocalist Paul Marinaro (12/28 only) and recording artist Eva B. Ross (12/28 & 12/29). The Friday show will include an additional musical set by Paul Marinaro; the Saturday show will include an additional set by Eva B. Ross!

Practical Radio Theatre on the Air is a classic radio show format filled with high spirits, satire and song. Join the live audience and be an integral part of the show, sipping a smart cocktail in the comfort of the North Shore’s most intimate performance venue ... then cheer a second time when you hear the broadcast on the air! Studio5 Performing Arts Center, located at Dempster and Dodge in Evanston, features comfy seating, great sight lines, state of the art sound and lights – and acres of free parking.

It’s another holiday happening to remember!

There are just 2 shows: Friday December 28th and Saturday the 29th. Click HERE to purchase your tickets in advance! There will be a cash bar for both shows. Doors open for socializing and cocktails at 7:30. Showtime is 8:00 – but the fun really begins as soon as you get there!
