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

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!
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.
