While the Hobo Junction company and ensemble members love working together, we also try and find as much time to partner with other theater companies around the Windy City, on projects of all shapes and sizes. Want to see what the Hobos do when they’re separated from the herd? Here’s a little info about our team mates with upcoming commitments.
Spenser Davis (Artistic Director) will be the only male actor in “Kate’s Dates,” the upcoming Waltzing Mechanics Summer production. He gets to play a series of douchebags, scumbags, and momma’s boys in a role that is being referring to simply as ‘All the Dates.’ The production will be running from June 9th – July 14th (Thursdays – Saturdays 8:00 p.m.; Sundays 5:00 p.m.) in the Downstairs Studio of the Greenhouse Theater Center. His short play “Rebecca Says Be Cool” is being featured in the Indie Boots Theatre Festival, hosted by Theatre Wit from May 20th-22nd at 7:30 p.m. each night.
Elizabeth Elston (Literary Manager) is playing Snow White in a short play titled “Snow White, who is also called Becky, no, Rebecca… and the Frog Prince,” in the Indie Boots Theatre Festival. She also wants you to vote … but for her show. Awkward company tension here.
Josh Zagoren (Ensemble Member, Co-Founder) is directing… are you kidding me? He’s directing a short play at the same Indie Boots Theatre Festival. His is called “Rebecca’s Broken Less Than Sign Number Three.” Josh is also the voice of Chad the Bird, the only puppet correspondent at the Paper Machete, Chicago’s living newspaper, performed at the Green Mill Lounge every Saturday afternoon.
Dan Krall (Ensemble Member) … we’ll save you the trouble. Dan’s in Josh’s short play. ‘Nuff said.
Travis Barnhart (Ensemble Member) is currently in Open Door Repertory’s production of “Superior Donuts” by Tracy Letts. The show is running until May 19th. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Christine Worden (Ensemble Member) is performing every Saturday night at 11 p.m. in the 10th edition of Waltzing Mechanics’ critically-acclaimed open-run theatrical staple “El Stories.” It performs in the Downstairs Studio of the Greenhouse Theater Center.
