CHESTERTON | Northwest Indiana’s improvisational comedy group returns to Chesterton for a special benefit show for the 4th Street Theater.
The 4th Street Theater opened its doors in 1999 and has produced many award-winning productions including; “The Man of LaMancha,” “12 Angry Men,” “A Streetcar Named Desire” and “Cabaret.”
Disposable Theatre is now in its third year of entertaining audiences across Northwest Indiana at Clancy’s Irish Pub in Portage, The Towle Theatre in Hammond, The Crown Point Community Theatre and at the 4th Street Theatre.
“The 4th Street Theatre is our home,” said Bob Craig, director and founder of Disposable Theatre. “We had our very first show here, we have improv classes here and we rehearse here every week. They have been great to us and we want to help them to continue to produce great theatre in Chesterton.”
Disposable Theatre’s shows feature fast-paced improv games and scenes based on suggestions given by the audience. Every show is different as it is all created in front of the audience.
“Our audience base is growing and the 4th Street Theater is a big part of that. We’ve worked hard to create a really funny format that our audiences can see again and again,” Craig said. “If you haven’t seen us before, this is a great time to come out. It’s never the same show twice. It’s all made up!”
The special fundraiser show will have delicious homemade pastries and desserts for sale and a 50/50 raffle. All proceeds from the event will go to the 4th Street Theatre.
The 4th Street Theater benefit show is at 8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 4 at the 4th Street Theater, 125 N. Fourth St. in Chesterton. Tickets are $15 and reservations can be made by calling the Disposable Theatre hotline at (219) 628-2250 or purchase tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/477396.
