St.Icky for St. Pat's? STICKY IN THE STICKS Is Back Tonight in Normal!

It's almost time for St. Patrick's Day, which sometimes seems like the official holiday of bars. Celebrating the holiday that mostly happens in bars with short plays set in bars... It's a natural, right?

Sticky in the Sticks, the local pop-up theatre that exclusively performs pieces set in bars -- and performs them in a bar -- is back tonight, less than a week before St. Patrick's Day.  As usual, they'll be performing at Firehouse Pizza & Pub in Normal, with a musical act starting the show at 8 pm, and the plays kicking off after that opener. This month, the band River Salt is up first. But you'll want to get there well before 8 because space is limited and you'll want a good seat to see all the action up-close and personal.

Sticky, Golden Hazy-style
Tickets are $8 for anyone and everyone -- while all ages will be admitted, these plays can and do contain mature language and situations, so the adults in the party should decide what they think any youngsters with them can handle. Word to the wise: If you do have kids in your group, you will definitely want to get there early to nab a spot in the first row.

Here's the line-up for March:

By Libby Emmons
Cast: J. Michael Grey and Keaton Richard

By J. Michael Grey
Directed by Anthony Loster
Cast: Maureen Sterrenburg, Ben Gorski and Joshua Miranda

Note that local authors J. Michael Grey and Terri Ryburn are representing Bloomington-Normal, while Sticky (the original, in New York) founder Libby Emmons adds some East Coast style.

Sticky in the Sticks was created by J. Michael Grey and Connie Blick as a spin-off of Emmons' New York original Sticky.
