  • pH Productions
    The quick-witted troupe of performers at pH Productions stirs up a rollicking concoction of comedy that bubbles with equal parts improv and audience interaction. Founded in 2002, the troupe's scientific moniker celebrates the onstage chemistry that leads to a great night of improv and leaves nothing but a neutral puddle of goo when incompatible performers accidentally touch. Classes teach would-be improvisers the arts of extemporaneous comedy with a focus on hands-on learning, and a slate of shows delight audiences with long- and short-form sketches, many of which have been recognized with the Chicago Reader's Critic's Choice award.

  • Andersonville Midsommarfest
    A glass of cold sangria in one hand, a plate of food balanced in the other. The only reason to disrupt such a perfect combination might be to dance to the live band performing just a few feet away. That's the basic Midsommarfest formula, and every summer, nearly 50,000 people flock to Andersonville for this celebration of all things local. Going strong for the past half century, the fest takes over Clark Street from Foster to Catalpa with booths for food and crafts as well as five different stages. These showcase eclectic entertainments that truly reflect the neighborhood's charm: not just cover bands (though there are those, too), but a pet parade, Swedish music, dance troupes, and sets from blues, roots, and funk bands. All the fun also helps the neighborhood, and not just because stoplights are powered by laughter; proceeds go to benefit community causes.

  • Network Entertainment Studios
    The people at Network Entertainment Studios spend a lot of time at musical performances, dance recitals, and sporting events. It's not that they're just extraordinarily popular or have huge extended families—they're there making sure that the people who are having their big day can remember it in clear audio and video for decades to come. The company started with one camera, one actor, and one director, and at first the founders came together with the goal of creating web series, and to create an online presence for artists and businesses. They still find time for their own creative work, but they've expanded to serve local businesses with animated promos, musicians with music videos, animated promos, explainer videos, and artists' live performances. From storyboarding to sound effects, the staff provide in-depth guidance at every step of the way to a work of moving art.

  • City Lit Theater
    Dedicated to transmogrifying bound works of literature into immersive plays since 1979, City Lit Theater Company translates the Shirley Jackson page-turner We Have Always Lived in the Castle into a suspenseful theatrical experience. The author of The Haunting of Hill House and “The Lottery,” Jackson’s tightrope prose has long influenced writers such as Stephen King while giving the nation’s boogeymen nightmares about cramped closets. The players of City Lit bring her final novel to life in their portrayal of the Blackwood sisters, who, along with their invalid uncle, have been ostracized for alleged parenticide. When a pesky cousin visits and shatters their seclusion, murder, witchcraft, and tense games of family Monopoly abound. We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a taut treat for theater and thriller fans, entertaining in layers and exposing the peaks and valleys of provincial isolationism.
