In just one week, The Practical Theatre will be back in the Chicago are with a classic radio show featuring grown-up comedy and great live music! Plus adult beverages! Join the fun as the PTC records two shows at Studio5 Performing Arts Center in Evanston for later broadcast on Chicago’s premier jazz station WDCB 90.9 FM.
There are just 2 shows: Friday December 28 and Saturday the 29th. Tickets are now on sale at Brown Paper Tickets. Click here for ticket info and reservations.
Practical Radio Theatre on the Air is a radio show format filled with high spirits, satire and song, featuring writer-performers Victoria Zielinski, Paul Barrosse and Dana Olsen with music by Steve Rashid and his Studio5 All-Stars, and special appearances by Studio5’s favorite singer Paul Marinaro, recording artist Eva B. Ross, and Giggle Break’s Daniel Rashid.
The Studio5 All-Stars are Steve Rashid (keyboards), Don Stiernberg (guitar), Jim Cox (bass) and Robert Rashid (drums).
Join the live audience and be an integral part of the show, sipping a smart cocktail in the comfort of the North Shore’s most intimate performance venue, located at Dempster and Dodge in Evanston — with acres of free parking!
It’s another holiday happening to remember!
Doors open for cocktails at 7:30. Showtime is 8:00.
Friday night’s performance begins with an opening set of songs by Paul Marinaro. On Saturday night Eva B. Ross opens the show. But the fun begins as soon as you get there!

We saw the show on 12/29 – and as a PTC “membership-card-thing” holder was overjoyed to hear from Steve Rashid that you would be including some of the – um – older – scripts in this show. The Norwegian duet between Mr Olson and Ms Ross – even my spouse was bent over with laughter. It’s a long interesting story (in an 80s kind of way….) on how I connected with PCT, but it was my summer of adventures with two guys with the same first name (both Ren Faire participants and Clown College alums). When friends reminisce about SNL I tell them – there is this guy, you may not have seen him but he is truly the funniest guy in the house and behind a lot of the stuff you do see. Thank you, it was absolutely amazing to see the show, which we only found out about because we went to see Tom Mula read his Marley work a couple weeks prior. As we walked in a poster for your show made my eyes light up – ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh can’t miss this one, that’s when I approached Mr Rashid to get the particulars. Please come back to Evanston – and Rock It this time around!
I love the fact that you were a PTC “membership-card-thing” holder. I bow down to you, Debbie.
