2-for-1 Tickets to Halloween Spooktacular
The Music Institute of Chicago welcomes the Halloween season with a “Spooktacular” Concert and Haunted Musical Open House. The appropriately “scary” concert program features selections from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor, performed by the Music Institute’s acclaimed faculty. The Haunted Musical Open House invites guests to travel from room to room for music, trick or treating, and other activities. Audience members of all ages are encouraged to wear costumes and get into the spirit of the event.
The concert takes place Sunday, October 28 at 3:00 pm at Nichols Concert Hall, 1490 Chicago Avenue in Evanston. WTTW members may purchase two full-price tickets for the price of one, subject to availability.
2-for-1 Tickets to The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Welcoming the audience to get involved in the action, the Saint Sebastian Players (SSP) open the company’s 38th season with the multiple Tony Award-winning musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood with book, music, and lyrics by Rupert Holmes. Based on Charles Dickens’ final unfinished novel, this hilarious whodunit invites the audience to solve its mystery by choosing the identity of the murderer, potentially changing the show’s ending at each performance. The tale is presented as a show within a show, as the Music Hall Royale – a delightfully loony Victorian theatre company – presents Dickens’ brooding mystery.
Performances are October 26-November 18, 2018, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm at St. Bonaventure, 1625 W. Diversey in Chicago. Free parking is available in two lots. WTTW members may purchase two full-price tickets for the price of one, subject to availability.
2-for-1 Tickets for Tere O’Connor Dance
The Dance Center of Columbia College Chicago presents the return of Tere O’Connor Dance. Long Run is a major new work from O’Connor that pits the rigid geometry of the stage against the organic bodies crossing over it in a kinetic exploration. Long Run pushes the emotional content of O’Connor’s movement to new physical extremes, allowing time-based elements like polyrhythms, velocity, and duration to overtake the performers as they struggle to bring their bodies into a state of calm. O’Connor has a great love of movement and a deep commitment to choreographic craft and design, while more philosophical urges animate his work.
Performances are Thursday-Saturday, October 18-20 at 7:30 pm at the Dance Center, 1306 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago. WTTW members may purchase two tickets for the price of one, subject to availability..
