BLEACHER BUMS by Joe Montegna

Welcome to Wrigley Field (aka Vermilion River Beer Company) as the
Cubs take on the Cardinals! Wear your team’s colors to the “ballpark” to
root for your favorite team and HAVE FUN!!

The bleacher bums include a rabid cheerleader, a blind man who follows
the game by transistor radio and does his own play by play, a bathing
beauty, a nerd and various other bleacher denizens. During the baseball
game, they bet on every conceivable event, go out for frosty malts or beers,
try to pick up the bathing beauty and, occasionally, watch the game.

All-inclusive tickets are $50 (the performance, a beverage, a Chicago style
hot dog, and a souvenir).
This is an outdoor event so feel free to bring your lawn chair or blanket.
Seating is limited.
This production is directed by Shannon Schroeder and is presented by
special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

For ticketing information, visit the Red Mask Players Facebook page or call the
Box Office at (217) 442-5858.

Home to the Red Mask Players

In July 2017, the ceiling of our 115 year old building started to fall, and we have begun repairs. There is some water damage in several areas of the theater that will also need attention. Those things come with a significant price tag, however, so please consider donating to our GoFundMe account to help us fix our beautiful building!
