Skooled: A Study in Circus at The Actors Gym  

The Actors Gymnasium is one of ChiIL Mama's favs.   They make our ChiILpicks list for excellent circus arts, engaging plots and professional showmanship.   Tickets are on sale now for their winter show and do tend to sell out, so get your act together and reserve yours today.   We can't wait to check it out.   ChiIL Mama will be there...will YOU?!   Their shows are family friendly, all ages fun.

The Actors Gymnasium presents Skooled: A Study in Circus. This year's winter circus spectacular takes audiences on a journey of eccentric clowning, aerial acrobatics, live music, and devilish pranks.

Featuring the work of Chicago clown Dean Evans, Co-Artistic Directors Larry DiStasi, Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi and an amazing team of designers and performers, this circus production explores the school of hard knocks.  Life's lessons come in many forms.  And some people always end up in detention.  
Performances run February 16 - March 23, with shows at 7:30 pm on Fridays, 4:30 and 7:30 pm on Saturdays and 3:00 pm on Sundays (No 4:30 show on 2/16). Ticket prices range from $15-20. Tickets can be purchased online through or by calling the office at 847-328-2795. Please call the office for group ticket pricing and availability. 

The Actors Gymnasium is located at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes Street, Evanston, IL - just off of the Noyes purple line 'L' stop. For additional information on The Actors Gymnasium's innovative programming, please visit or call 847-328-2795.
