Make a Note: STICKY FALL OPENER Moves to November 5

Jorge Guzman, Drew Pettit, and Spencer Powell rehearsing Sticky Fall Opener
Sticky Fall Opener, the autumnal incarnation of Sticky in the Sticks, a pop-up program of ten-minute plays set in a bar and performed in a bar, was originally set for tomorrow night, October 28. But when the Cubs made the World Series, the first World Series game at Wrigley Field since 1945 -- Game 3 of the overall series -- was scheduled for that same night. Sticky's organizers decided that it would be hard to compete with all the Cubs brouhaha happening that night, and they've pushed back their Fall Opener to the next open date at Normal's Firehouse Pizza and Pub, which just happens to be Saturday, November 5.

Improv Attack will still open the show, starting their part of the proceedings at 8 pm. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Space in the bar at Firehouse Pizza and Pub is limited so you should probably get there early with your cash in hand. Last I heard, tickets were $8, but I don't see a ticket price on the Fall Opener page, so... Bring $10 and if that's not right, give the fine people at Sticky a donation of the extra dollar or two.

We do know that there will be six ten-minute plays, with a cast that includes Sticky in the Sticks founder J. Michael Grey as well as Jorge Guzman, Aszure Dorton Hedges, Evan Dean Landreth, Kari Knowlton-Green, Devon McCloskey, Drew Pettit, Spencer Powell, Bridgette Richard, Elante Richardson "and more."

This is billed as an event for all ages, although some of the plays may contain mature themes, so whether you think Sticky is appropriate for your children is up to you.
