|It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Sticky...
Cue the Irish coffee, the gingerbread martini, the candy cane cocktail, the rum-loaded eggnog. It's time for "Bottoms up, Lights Down," as we celebrate Sticky, the December Edition.
The Sticky troupe works with material set at a bar, transforming a real-life, actual pub into a theatre for the night. This month's collection of plays -- set to start about 8:30 pm next Friday in Normal, after musical guests War Painted Horses finishes -- is "bound to take you through laughs, maybe some tears, stomach aches, and memories, because," as Sticky always points out, "anything that can happen can happen in a bar." Especially over the holidays, when people have a tendency to partake of liquid spirits even more than usual.
This month's group of actors includes founders Connie Blick and J. Michael Grey as well as Bruce E. Clark, Susanna Doehler, Andrea Henderson, Kari Knolton, Anthony Loster, Will Lovell, Megan McCann, Devin McCloskey, Terry Noel, Spencer Powell, Jared Saunders, Brandon Smith and Anne Tobin. That's Connie you see in the photo at the top of this post. She's the one with her arms open wide to welcome December fun.
Please note that you don't have to be 21 to attend, but mature audiences are recommended due to language and themes. Doors open at 7:30 and you are well advised to be there early to get a good seat.
