A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
Mr. Olsen’s Holiday Party is a classic holiday variety show featuring grown-up sketch comedy, live music, standup comedy, adult beverages — and The Mr. Olsen Dancers! It’s happening at Studio5, Evanston’s newest, classiest performance venue at 1934 Dempster Street (the SW corner of Dempster & Dodge).
Practical Theatre Company veterans Victoria Zielinski, Paul Barrosse and Dana Olsen will perform improvisational comedy sketches and topical songs from “The Vic & Paul & Dana Show”, accompanied by keyboard wizard Steve Rashid, drummer Rockin’ Ronny Crawford — and Don Stiernberg playing every stringed instrument imaginable.
The PTC’s next generation is also adding to the fun: standup comedienne Emilia Barrosse and Giggle Break’s own Daniel Rashid, plus singer-songwriter Eva B. Ross (whom North Siders have seen at venues like Katerina’s Jazz Club, The Beauty Bar and The Whiskey Lounge at 27 Live) and drummer Robert Rashid.
Mr. Olsen’s Holiday Party runs for two shows: a performance of the comedy-variety show on December 30 — and a New Year’s Eve party on December 31st featuring the comedy-variety show (including light food) followed by live music by the Studio5 All-Stars, who will keep the dance floor grooving into 2017!
Studio 5 has acres of free parking – and there will be a cash bar on both evenings.

This will be a holiday party to remember. See you there for all the fun!
This was the scene at 10:00 am in North Hollywood, California, where a long line snaked around Amelia Earhart Park for early voting, — set to “Dialogue, Pts. 1 & 2”, a classic song by Chicago. The mood was decidedly pro-Hillary. And it’s no wonder, since Hillary is projected to thump Trump in the Golden State by a margin somewhere around 30%.
But take nothing for granted my fellow Californians.
Get out and vote.
This Tuesday, Election Day, get out and vote.
And vote for Hillary Clinton.
If you’re a Democrat, of course, vote for Hillary.
If you’re a Bernie Sanders fan (as I was), reject Susan Sarandon’s third-party nihilism and vote for the only woman who can defeat the abomination that is Donald J. Trump.
If you’re a woman, please — have you been listening to Trump? Vote for Hillary.
If you’re married to a woman, or just in love with a woman, or you simply like women – vote for Hillary out of respect for the women you appreciate and respect.
If you’re Latino, vote for Hillary in droves. He has made you and your parents his scapegoat.
If you’re African-American, vote for Hillary. After all, says Trump, what do you have to lose?
If you’re Muslim, or any religious minority with a history of persecution in this country, vote for Hillary. (This, unfortunately, includes all of us blue collar Irish and Italian Catholics.)
If you believe in science and the salvation of our planet, vote for Hillary. Trump says climate change is a hoax perpetrated by China. (I don’t know that he actually believes this – but that’s what he says to get the votes of West Virginia coal miners and Oklahoma oil workers.)
If you call yourself a Christian, vote for Hillary. How many of The Beatitudes would Donald Trump agree with? Can you image Trump saying, “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth?”
If you’re a parent, vote for Hillary. Do you want your children to grow up in a pro-bully culture?
I could go on.
But, really — this isn’t even close.
Vote for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.
We must send Trump down to a landslide defeat.
If you’re sane…
If you’re reasonable…
If you’re a rational human being…
Vote against Trump.
And make Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.
