“Tick, Tick…BOOM!” Opens This Friday!


Peoria Cabaret Theatre is proud to present the local premiere of Tick, Tick…BOOM! this Friday and Saturday, April 2nd and 3rd.   The cast are all alums of Eastlight Theatre’s blockbuster production of RENT and include Adam Sitton (Roger) as Jon, Kates Sitton (Mimi) as Susan and Anthony Jumaane Hendricks (Collins) as Michael.  With direction by RENT director and PCT company member Chip Joyce.

 THE SHOWTick, Tick… BOOM! is Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical tale of a young composer on the brink of turning 30 and falling into oblivion. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city (Tick,), his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue (Tick…), yet Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical (Boom!). Containing fourteen songs, ten characters, three actors, and a band, Tick, Tick… BOOM! takes you on the playwright/composer’s journey that led to the Broadway blockbuster, RENT. Everyone, regardless of age, will love this youthful, endearing, and thoughtful piece, and will surely embrace the universal ideal of holding onto your dreams through life’s most difficult challenges.

Admission is only $20 per person (tax included) for dinner and show. In honor of the bohemian flavor of this show, our chef will be whipping up a “Peasants Feast” buffet featuring macaroni and cheese, spaghetti-o’s, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chips and a Hostess dessert.

Doors open at 6:00PM for dinner and the show starts at 8:00PM.  Call (309)494-9100 for reservations.  Show only seats (if available) can be purchased at the door starting at 7:30pm the evening of each performance. ALL SEATS ARE $20 INCLUDING SHOW ONLY.   No advance reservations available for show only seats.
