Evanston Ecology Center, Ladd Arboretum 2024 McCormick Blvd., Evanston Evanston

Buy Tickets$15 or pay what you can


Possibilities Theatre Company presents the midwest premiere of Tara Meddaugh's psychological thriller, directed by Melody DeRogatis, about a socially awkward young woman, Amelia, and her relationship with her toxic mother. Amelia's only respite is bingo night at the local community center, where a talking bingo chip sets the stage for a showdown. In the event of inclement weather, the outdoor production will move to a live Zoom presentation (including bingo games). Reservations are available for 25 people per outdoor performance, either through Venmo or CashApp donation (@possibilitiestheatrecompany), or by e-mailing possibilitiestheatrecompany@gmail.com with the number of people in your party. The show will also be presented at Northcenter Town Square on Friday 10/30, 7 PM. 847-448-8256

Studio5 1934 Dempster, Evanston Evanston

Cerqua Rivera Dance Theatre kicks off its 2020 season with this limited-attendance benefit, honoring Sandra McNaughton, a longtime supporter of the company. The performance will include excerpts from earlier pieces in the CRDT repertoire, American Catracho (directed by Wilfredo Rivera, with choreography by Christian Denice and Noelle Kayser) and Root (created by Monique Haley and Joe Cerqua). The evening also includes new work, Identity City, directed and curated by Rivera, featuring choreography by Shannon Alvis, Katlin Bourgeois, and A. Raheim White and music by Cerqua. The piece is the first in a four-year project examining concepts of gender identity. Finally, in Mood Swing, Rivera will lead three choreographers (Alvis, Bourgeois, and Haley) and composer Cerqua in developing duets between musicians and dancers that respond to the current pandemic crisis and social justice movement. 847-328-6683
