K.C. Redheart presents the Playground Improv Marathon
The brave members of local improv troupe K.C. Redheart will test their wits, endurance, and sanity as the core group of "marathoners" going without rest while improvising for 30 straight hours in this fundraiser for Namaste Charter School and the Playground Theater!

But they are not alone!

In effect, the marathon is 30 unique shows, as each hour the marathoners welcome guests from around the city to improvise with them, including performers from the Second City, iO, ComedySportz, the Annoyance Theatre, and K.C. Redheart's home, the Playground.  With the help of so many different performers, the Playground Improv Marathon will showcase the diversity and vitality of Chicago's improv scene. There will be short-form games in the style of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, experimental and narrative long-form shows, family-friendly shows during the day, and anything-goes sets during the late night hours. As an added bonus, the audience will witness the Marathoners' transformation from well-adjusted adults to sleep-deprived comedy nutjobs by the end of it all. And most importantly, all of the proceeds go to charity.

Friday, August 26 @ 5pm
Saturday, August 27 @ 11pm.

$5 for matinee hours, $10 for prime time hours, or $25 for passes to the entire Marathon.

Matinee hours are suitable for all ages, prime time hours are suitable for those 13+, and late night hours are suitable for those 18+.  For those 21+, the Playground Theater is BYOB.
