Followed by the not-to-be-missed
one man show opening January 29th.....
by Mark Humphrey
A one man show about the life and times of Jack Benny, starring Tim Newell. This play has been performed to great acclaim on the east coast and we are very happy to be bringing Mr. Benny home to Waukegan! Mr. Benny dramatizes Jack Benny’s family life, his roots in show business: his days in vaudeville, then radio, some movies, and finally, the ultimate challenge, television. The perfect show for Waukegan, Jack Benny’s hometown.
Wrapping up the season will be our spring production of
Constant State of Panic by Patrick Gabridge, directed by Richard Shavzin
A dark comedy about threat levels, secret surveillance, and holding a marriage together. Don't fear...LAUGH!
