We're back and brand new. And thus it begins. This years Holiday Party is going to kick off what's sure to be a busy and exciting 2009 for your old friends, the Strange Trees.
The Twelve Grave Errors of Christmas Dec 1st 2008 Congress theatre 2135 N Milwaukee Ave 7 to 11 pm
Oh where to start dear friends? We're all feeling so festive as of late. The world is turning at a better angle and we're rested, recuperated and ready to rejoice. What better excuse than to hold a party for our nearest and dearest? You can get your tickets for only $7 if you buy them online before the actual event ($10 bucks at the door). That's dirt cheap, right? We thought so. We're going to have tons of fun folks there from Strange Tree shows past and present as well as a few new acts to tickle your fancy. Beer from our holiday keg (Big thanks to Sully's House!) will come free with your ticket purchase and we're going to have loads of delicious cupcakes to satisfy your sweet teeth with a ballot box to vote on the best flavor. Cupcake Battle Royal! The Congress folks are also kind enough to open up their cash bar to us so, if you poo poo our brew you can grab another drink or two.
Special guests will include but are not limited to:
Yes, our very own rogues of rigor mortis shall play their special deadly version of 'Christmas Music'.
Our personal playwright crafts especially silly strange tree snippets for the holiday season.
The Lovely Ladies of Aloft Aerial Dance!
See them glide through the air and tumble the floor in ways you've never seen before!
Hey You Millionaires!
The Chicago Reader's 2008 choice for Best Sketch Group. Two of them are robots. Guess which two!
The Gentlemen Rogues
Come and watch these stage combat comedians festively stab, poke, prod and jab!
The burlesque doll wants to jingle your bells under the mistletoe!
International Bread Company and Bangalore Torpedo
Music, Mayhem, Merriment and Marvin!
And there will be so much more. A super fun night packed in to the hours between 7 and 11 with jugglers, tumblers, comedians, dancers, singers, eggnog sippers, and the ghosts of Christmas past and preset. So please, if you like parties and if you like hanging out with other folks who like parties at a party. Then this is the party to attend! I know we're all looking forward to it and we're looking forward to spending time with all of you.
