Friday, March 6

Chicago Cultural Center, Preston Bradley Hall

Join Chicago Improv Productions as they present an imaginative, fully improvised theatre production. Inspired by a combination of Second City co-founder Paul Sill's Story Theater, Japan's Noh Theatre and Viewpoints, the company creates a single story from multiple ensemble narrative and storytelling techniques. The diverse professional actors develop their original story from just one audience suggestion and incorporate text, physical movement, props, and sound effects into the work. The production shows students the eternal value of storytelling, community and shared creativity.

Chicago Cultural Center, Preston Bradley Hall

Istvan, a writer and performer of wonderful children's songs, plays his Martin acoustic guitar through an endless series of effects alongside his Korg Univox drum machine Kendall. On any given show a rotating cast of special guest performers add their talent to his art pop songs and odd ball B-sides. When Istvan and His Imaginary Band starts rocking, kids can’t help but join in, sometimes on stage, while their moms and dads cheer them on and enjoy the original tunes. Istvan has an irresistible mix of interactive rock ‘n’ roll, country, pop punk and sing-alongs that get heads bobbing.
