Pimprov
May 18 @ 9:30 pm – 11:00 pm

You’ve seen the flashy suits and jewelry so bright that a blind man can see it shining. Now ask yourself “who is more entertaining than a pimp?” Pimprov revolves around four pimps who took improv classes…on accident. The group’s lack of political correctness and outrageous costumes are only part of the reason they’re growing in popularity. The other reason is they’re really funny!

One night only from Chicago, The Green Room and ComedyCity present Pimprov. Hailed by critics and audiences alike and running for over 10 years, it’s a show you don’t want to miss!

Cardboard Theatre Staged Reading: Crime!
Sep 24 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Hey! Wanna see how the theatrical sausage gets made? (If that’s a gross metaphor, you’re welcome to come up with something else, pal.)

Come see the first cold reading of Cardboard Theatre’s upcoming new production; Crime!

This reading will be Tuesday, September 24th at 7PM at The Green Room.
The play opens November 15th, but for the low low cost of free you can hear the script as it currently exists. It’s quite possible that the show it ends up being will be quite different. Such is the nature of original scripted material.

Crime! is a Staged Film Noir Montage Pastiche. Not sure what that means? You should totally swing by for the reading. Meet the cast. Meet the writers. Meet the director. Give your input. Who knows? We might actually listen to your input, chum.

The show is rated PG, but if you’re super sensitive there may be some themes that might be troubling to your tender little heart, but you’ll probably be fine, kid.

Prizes and other opportunities to help support Cardboard Theatre will be happening too. You should stop by. There might be cake. There almost never is, but you never know, this time might be the time.

See you here.

Freak Show & Tell
Oct 11 @ 11:15 pm – Oct 12 @ 12:15 am

Tickets: $40 VIP; $20 General Admission

“Britton is a charismatic performer who appears genuinely thrilled to share how simple his seemingly death-defying acts really are. His explanations are peppered with jokes and carnival flair, making even the dullest details memorable and entertaining.” – Chicago Reader

Free show preview… www.FreakShowTell.com (WARNING: video spoilers!)
The show is for ages 18 and up. No one under 18 will be allowed in the venue. We are drinking and making dick jokes. Sorry, kids.

FreakShow & Tell is a critically acclaimed one-man show that blends science, freakshow, and storytelling into a 70 minute journey that is unlike any other. Fire Eating! Glass Walking! and more…Come see it.

18 and over ONLY

Thom Britton is one of the world’s most unique fire eaters. He blends stand-up comedy, storytelling and danger into an act that is 10,000 years old and brand new – at the same time.

But, the show isn’t just fire eating!

Over 100,000 volts of electricity, nails, chainsaws and broken glass are playthings for Thom Britton in FreakShow & Tell. You will not believe what you see.

“Hopefully the audience will understand not just HOW I eat fire, but WHY I wanted to learn to eat fire.”

FreakShow & Tell was originally performed in 2006, in Chicago at a small cafe and theater. The reception was…. well, not great. Fantastic reviews, but a low audience turnout almost killed the project right away. The show was remounted about a year later, and the results were amazing! Shows were sold out and ‘standing room only’ for months! Since then, FreakShow & Tell has been performed to great success and is still a critical darling!

FAQs

Is there an age limit to enter the event?

The show is for ages 18 and up. No one under 18 will be allowed in the venue. We are making dick jokes, discussing sexuality and cursing. Sorry, kids.

Miracle on 34th Street – Green Room Players
Dec 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Green Room Players will be bringing another holiday classic to life this December with Miracle on 34th Street. As with previous radio play productions, this one will feature live actors, music, and sound effects.

The show is based on the 1947 movie classic of the same name, adapted for radio in 1948 by the Lux Radio Theater. Miracle on 34th Street tells the story of a department store Santa who believes he is the real Kris Kringle, and a little girl who doesn’t believe in Santa at all. His claim leads to human resources getting involved, psychiatric observation, and ultimately, a court case.

Join the Green Room Players for this family-friendly performance that captures the spirit of the season. It’s a feel-good holiday story celebrating those timeless themes of love, hope, and happiness-ever-after.

There will be two performances, Tuesday and Wednesday, December 10th and 11th, at 7pm. The story runs approximately an hour. Following the radio play, there will be a sing-along featuring songs of the season.

Tickets are just $10 each, and can be purchased online at www.TheGreenRoomOnline.com, or at the door the day of the show.
