It's Sticky Time Again!

Sticky in the Sticks, the short-plays-in-a-bar phenomenon that popped up in Normal last year, is back March 20th for our post-Ides-of-March, post-St. Patty's entertainment. There's even a snake play to keep your St. Patrick's celebration going.

March 20th is actually both Proposal Day and Extraterrestrial Abduction Day, although there is no info at this point indicating that Sticky organizers Connie Blick and J. Michael Grey are using either as a theme. Note to Connie and J. Michael: You may want to think about Extraterrestrial Abduction Proposals for next year because that would be awesome.

In the meantime, Bottoms Up Lights Down for March will be a program of five ten-minute plays, ranging from work by local authors to plays that are direct from New York. Here's the line-up:

By J. Michael Grey
Directed by Fais Koos Fiste
Featuring Dan Otsuka, Carly Prokup and Keaton Richard

By Maxwell Johnson
Directed by J. Michael Grey
Featuring Brandon Smith and Zachary Wildman

By Bridgette Richard
Directed by Bettie Lucca
Featuring Catie Breaux, Wes Melton and Lizzy Selzer

By James Pravasilis
Directed by Ali Ayala
Featuring Connie Blick and J. Michael Grey

By J. Michael Grey
Directed by Fais Koos Fiste
Featuring Andrew Kouba, Brandon Smith, Maureen Sterrenberg and Gwendolyn Yale

These five plays are available for the small sum of $7, collected at the door. You'll find the Sticky stuff at the Firehouse Pizza and Pub, with music from an indie pop/alt band called Alex and the XOs opening the evening at 8 pm. After a set from Alex and the XOs, Sticky's plays will be up, right there at the bar. Audience members are invited to get a beverage at the bar and take a seat for the program. It's fun, it's different, it's an adult Friday night out in Uptown Normal.
