Comedy for a Cause to put on show in Jefferson
JEFFERSON -- The local comedic theater group Comedy for a Cause will put on a comedy variety show Saturday, Aug. 18, at 7 p.m. at the Jefferson Performing Arts Center, 700 W. Milwaukee St., Jefferson. All profits will benefit Tomorrow’s Hope.
Tickets will be available at the door starting 45 minutes before the show begins. Admission will be name-your-price, with a minimum donation of $3 per person.
This is Comedy for a Cause’s eighth production. It will consist of original sketches, improv comedy, musical numbers and a live band.
“We have around 40 young adults and students that are volunteering and giving up time out of their busy lives to put on this show,” stated Dan Igl, president of the Comedy for a Cause group. “Everyone involved with our show has a passion for giving back to the community and helping affected lives in the fight to cure cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
A media release for the event stated that this show is set to be the group’s last big production and that the group is taking a hiatus. Igl said many of the main actors and tech crew are growing up and moving away. Igl also has other projects he wants to focus on, including moving to Chicago within the next few years to go back and study at the comedy improv school Second City.
“This hiatus could be short or long; it is yet to be determined,” stated Igl, “but we will be back.”
