Late-Night at the Pride Arts Center announces the second round of its popular late night show,“26,” Saturday nights at 10pm, August 5th through September 23rd at The Buena, Pride Arts Center, located at 4147 N Broadway Ave.
“26” features sketches written by the Chicago theater, sketch and improv community including: Carson Birdsong, Ross Christian, Amanda Foreman, Brian Gore, Wen Powers, Kallie Rolison, Tim Skau, as well as the performing cast. It is directed by Allison Heinz .
The cast includes Casey S. Campbell, Matt Denton, Sarah Hazel, Dan Jackson, Theresa Liebhart, Anna Marck and Hannah Mary Simpson.
Inspired by the “ABC’s of Death” horror anthology, “26” showcases 26 short sketches, each represented by a different letter of the alphabet. The guest writers have been randomly assigned a letter for which they chose a word that begins with that letter to serve as the title of their sketch. A cast of seven will perform each sketch that spans the gamut of comedy, drama, surrealism, performance art and absurdism. “26” gives you a night that tackles anything from A to Z.
“26” runs every Saturday at 10pm, August 5th through September 23rd in the Buena, Pride Arts Center, located at 4147 N Broadway Ave., Chicago IL. Tickets are $10.00. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.prideartschicago.com; or by phone at 1-800-737-0984.
