On the evening of Monday December 10th, please join us for a special night of Rough Magic at Next Theatre!

Rough Magic is a celebration of creative abundance.  A one night only performance by Chicago’s theater community and an opportunity to learn about and give to local, national and international organizations who are practicing daring, inspired, creative innovation for good.

This December's Rough Magic will be a glorious Winter Celebration at Next Theatre, with readings of classic holiday stories by Next Theatre actors, including Mary Ann Thebus, Polly Noonan, Erik Hellman, Alex Goodrich and others, in an evening directed by Michael Rohd.

In addition, we will celebrate three local organizations who are using the human power of creative thinking, storytelling and hard work to meaningful and inspired effect in the world.  We'll give a vivid snapshot of The Moran Center, The Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse, and Evanston Scholars.  What kind of innovation inspires us?  Who can make best use of a gift of resources?  Every guest can choose exactly where they'd like their $10 to go!  At the end of the night we'll see how much we've raised by celebrating the season together.

This will be a very special evening.  Please join us if you can!
