    Directed by Tonika Todorova, a Silent Theatre Company (Chicago) ensemble member and featuring live music by Elliot Taggart and set design by Grant Sabin. Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger is an uproarious hour-long physical storytelling comedy that is too funny for words. A silent play inspired by the slapstick comedies of the 1920s with a modern sensibility that is fun for the whole family! From maintaining the guard booth and lift gates to pratfalls, avoiding bees and redirecting traffic, this play has a bit of everything that can conceivably go wrong on the job of a solitary booth operator, Smitty Harbinger, while he attempts to deal with and overcome every challenging situation before he smitties everything up.

    Performance times for Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger are Saturday, August 17 at 2pm and 7:30pm, Sunday, August 18 at 2pm at Beatniks on Conkey. Tickets are $15.00 and $10.00 for students/youth.
