STAND UP COMEDY NIGHT!!
Did you know The Wilmette Theatre is a non-profit?! So, every ticket purchased for every event goes toward keeping this gem alive! Obviously we pay the talent who entertains us, but the more of you, the longer we're here! Join us on March 14th - it's going to be fun and funny!
The Wilmette Theatre and local branding and communication media agency, Tell Your Story are coming together once again to produce
Tell Your Story Slam!
MC's: Amy Falkowski & George Rafeedie
The theme is "The Last Time..." As a storyteller, you get to riff, interpret, or go with the flow on how you would like to... tell your story.
Each story should be 5 minutes long, but your submission just needs to be an idea or concept of what you'd like to talk about on stage. As long as your fully developed story is ready to go by May 3rd!
All questions and submissions should be sent to Amy Falkowski, Program Director of The Wilmette Theatre by April 14, 2024.
CULT CLASSIC FILM SERIES
THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH OCTOBER- MAY
Sophia Steak Wilmette is one of the proud sponsors of the 2023 Cult Classics hosted by The Wilmette Theater. Each month, Sophia Steak will offer a movie trivia contest and a chance to win a $50 Ballyhoo Hospitality gift card. No purchase is necessary; ticketholders can pick up their trivia question cards after each film at Sophia Steak Wilmette. Sophia will offer a specialty cocktail inspired by each movie, making them great sippers to enjoy while filling in the answers. All completed cards will be dropped in a ballot box for safekeeping until the winner is selected the next day. All guests who answer the questions correctly will enter to win the grand prize: a four-course dinner for six with beverage pairings to Sophia Steak Wilmette. The grand prize winner will be selected after the series ends in May.
Along with a chance to win a $50 gift card, moviegoers will receive half off all wine bottles (that are served by the glass) when they present their Cult Classic movie tickets before or after the show.
