WIN 4 Tickets To Spark at Adventure Stage & Opening Date Change to 4/12 (suggested ages 9+)

Hey--we didn't confuse & lose you to the spring forward date change, so I'm confident you can handle this leap as well.  Adventure Stage has sprung the opening date for SPARK forward exactly one week.  See that was easy.  We still have loads of lead time, so we're still giving away 4 free tickets to the opening show and the after party it'll just be the 12 instead of the 5th.  And BONUS... you now have one more week to enter, too!

Here's the new and improved details.  All prior entries still count and you can continue to spread the word and enter like we vote in Chicago... early and often!

WIN 4 Tickets to The World Premiere of SPARK (9+) at Adventure Stage
(Suggested ages 9+/4th grade.  Under age 5 NOT admitted.)

Here at ChiIL Mama, we're long time fans of the fantastic work Adventure Stage does. They're great about community building, bringing world premiers to life, and rocking the family friendly fare. 

CLICK HERE to enter to WIN 4 free tickets (ages 9+) to the opening day performance (April 12/4pm) of  SPARK by Tom Arvetis!  He's a local dad and fixture in the Chicago theatre world.  Check out our past video interview with Tom (12/11) right here.

Don't miss this exciting new stage play that completely re-imagines the classic myths of Prometheus and Pandora.

“It only takes a spark to ignite a flame.” 

Pandora lives a regimented life within the underground tunnels of Sanctuary, a secluded community designed to outlast the raging violence outside its walls. Each inhabitant of Sanctuary has a purpose, a place, and a common enemy—the mysterious Outliers who live in the world above.  

But after Pandora personally encounters two young Outliers, she starts to question all that has been taught to her. Is Sanctuary the safe haven she has always believed it to be, or a prison built on fear? As sides are chosen and truths shattered, Pan must ultimately decide between the life she knows and the one that is calling to her. 

Using projections designed by Liviu Pasare to simulate the texting and gaming that is ever-present in Sanctuary’s techno-savvy world, this inventive adventure set in the near future is recommended for ages 9 (grade 4) and up.

The Prometheus Project began when playwright Tom Arvetis and director Rives Collins visited several Chicago middle school classrooms and conducted a series of story circles with Adventure Stage’s West Town neighbors, utilizing the Greek myth of Prometheus as a starting point for understanding contemporary challenges within our community. Themes of power, violence, sacrifice and hope emerged as young people and families shared the daily struggles they experience. Out of these story circles, SPARK was born.

Relying heavily on the archetypes of the Hero’s Journey, ASC's goal with SPARK is to ask our audience to think critically about the responsibility we have to our neighbors and the courage it will take to move our communities toward a more imaginative, healthy and tolerant status quo.
