They're Baaack... And Stickier Than Ever!

After a summer off, things are getting Sticky again at Firehouse Pizza and Pub in Uptown Normal.

This Friday is the kick-off for the second season of bar-centric ten-minute plays -- all the plays take place in a bar and are also performed in one -- brought to life one Friday night a month under the Sticky umbrella. October's chapter of "Bottoms Up, Lights Down" -- a short-form way to refer to a theatrical experience where you get a drink and settle in for about half a dozen short plays performed in front of you at the Firehouse bar -- is scheduled for Friday the 16th. The doors will open at 7:30 pm, with a musical act at 8 and a curtain time when the music is done. You are forewarned to get there at 7:30, because seats are at a premium and you will want the best view of the bar.

This month's program is described like this: "Familiar Sticky faces join together with new Sticky faces to bring you a night of 5 ten minute bar plays about life, past love, dreams, and a hermaphrodite cat." 

Sticky's October acting troupe includes Connie Blick and J. Michael Grey, the founders of Normal's Sticky in the Sticks, along with Bruce Clark, Ben Gorski, Devin McCloskey, Anthony Loster, Wes Melton, Jared Saunders, Chris Schneider, Lizzy Selzer and Cathy Sutliff. Although you don't have to be 21 to attend, you should be aware that Sticky material can be provocative (like the hermaphrodite cat, for example) and may contain colorful language and mature themes. 

At right, you can see an overhead image of Sticky in action. Again, note the crowd. Get there early!
