THE BEAUTIFUL CITY PROJECT

is committed to using musical theatre as a tool to give back to the Chicago community, intent on building a promising tomorrow for a beautiful city. Cabaret performances highlight a different organization every month, while the mainstage programming of musicals in concert take a community issue head-on, raising awareness and funds to be given directly to an organization in need, making an immediate impact. A city-wide campaign of beautification and positivity will be the hallmark of a project intent on taking real action in our beautiful city.

Instead of the usual $25, tickets will only be $10, with proceeds going directly to Season of Concern, as well as the proceeds from the Silent Auction. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $75, and includes a variety of goodies and premium seating. They are available at www.thebeautifulcityproject.com/shows-and-tickets

The show begins at 7:30pm on Monday, December 19th at:

Floating World Gallery
