YOU (yes, you) have talent worth sharing! You just need a fantastic variety show to share it in. It’s open mic meets vaudeville meets show and tell the THIRD SATURDAY OF EACH MONTH. We’re looking for solo or group musicians, magicians, dancers, filmmakers, actors, comedians, poets, storytellers, Ted-ish talkers, visual artists, crafters, animal trainers… We mean EVERY kind of talent! (Yes, being a good audience member counts as a talent.) Then we’ll put all the pieces together into one phantasmagorical experience.

Fear The Accordion

Three Brothers Theatre - 115 N. Genesee St. - $20, $15 student/senior/military
Sat 06/01/19 8:00 PM

Greetings, loyal citizens of Waukegan Sector! In these dark times when our underground complex is increasingly infiltrated by secret mutants from the deadly wasteland outside our armor-plated walls, no weapon is more fearsome than the accordion. And no one wields an accordion more fearsomely than Captain Ambivalent.

In his Computer-mandated effort to explain how we got to this point, he looks to film classics like Metropolis, Star Wars, and Robocop, 1980s fear culture, and a role playing game called “Paranoia,” and discovers he may have had a little hand in The Complex himself.

Report to your re-education pods for sidesplitting musical madness!
