In two acts of family-friendly comedy, the nine ensemble members of Natural Selection: The Burden of Being Alive debut original sketches that examine life and its uncanny resilience at one of the city’s oldest off-Loop theaters. Company mastermind Antoine McKay and music director Alif Muhhamed guide performers through a 90-minute, up-tempo rotation of sketches that pack laughs into bite-size packages, much like trick hot-pepper chewing gum. Members of the diverse, multitalented and multi-limbed cast have trained at joke factories such as Second City and ComedySportz and worked with other institutions including Stage Left Theatre.

McKay Arts

Seasoned stage and screen actor Antoine McKay founded McKay Arts to give fresh faces the courage to step into the limelight and provide established artists with a place to cultivate and hone their craft. Antoine, an alumnus of The Second City's theaters in Detroit and Chicago, trains and manages actors and artists and also provides them with creative outlets in the form of regular performances at the Athenaeum Theatre, Pressure Comedy Café, and other local venues. He instructs students of all ages and skill levels in classes of approximately 12 students or in private coaching sessions, which give patrons ample attention and endless attempts to guess who is knocking at hypothetical doors.
