What a ride! We’ve wrapped up our run at the 2013 Chicago Fringe Festival, and boy–was it a great time. By our count, we had roughly ~150 policies, new and old, come see the show–with a fantastically packed house for the final performance!
We want to give a big shout out to all the folks who helped spread the word about the live performance- including, but not limited to: Geek Girl Chicago, Chicago Nerd Social Club, OCDweeb, Skill Point Station, Chicago Loot Drop, Chicago Game Lovers, Two Girls a Guy and a Tardis Podcast, ETMF Podcast, Forward Compatible Podcast, David Zoltan, Time Crash, Arc Impulse, Raks Geek, and the Chicago Sci-Fi club! We’d also really like to thank the Chicago Fringe Festival and the Jefferson Park community for being such welcoming hosts—we had a great time, and can’t wait for next year!
So, once again—thank you so much to everyone who came out to see our show, and a big welcome to all the new Policies listening to the show for the first time! We’re going to get back to editing/releasing Season Four, workshopping Season Five, and getting ready for our next big event!
See you in the tunnels,
Vice President Gardner
Please be aware, the venue for our show has been moved!
We will now be performing at 5320 W Giddings, Basement. The venue is still called the “Hold the Pickles Stage.”
Our Fair City: the Live Episode! is a late night variety show set in the world of HartLife, featuring live foley, music, advertisements from the Corporation, and more. Described as “Garrison Keillor in the world of 1984, “ the show follows the foibles of its host Archibald FunnyPants as he runs afoul of the only power left in the world: the HartLife Corporation.
