    We're bringing a night of stand-up sketch, & a bit of improv from two of the best comics in the midwest! Steven Lyons & Jamie Campbell are reuniting for a limited-run comedy tour that will hit a handful of lucky cities this October. The duo met when they were both stand-out performers in Chicago’s world-famous comedy scene. Two twelve year-olds trapped inside the bodies of 30-something men, their act combines sketch comedy, stand-up, improvisation, and any other mix of dumb fun they can think of!

    Opening act TBA.

    Credits:
    Before disbanding when both left Chicago, they collaborated on the sketch comedy/talk show Talk Hard, which was named Chicago’s “Best Sketch/Improv Troupe” by The Chicago Reader. The duo has performed on numerous stages, including The CSz Theater, Laugh Out Loud Comedy, Chicago Underground Comedy, Under The Gun Theater, and as headliners at the Columbus Improv Festival. They appeared on television sets across the nation as guests on Steve Gadlin’s Star Makers. Steven now resides back in his home country of New Zealand, but is returning to the U.S. for a brief stint, making this very limited reunion tour possible. Don’t miss this rare chance to see Lyons & Campbell return to the stage!

    About Steven:
    Steven Lyons has performed comedy around the globe including Chicago, London, Boston, Bermuda, Vancouver, New York, Calgary, Indiana, across the Caribbean and even Auckland, New Zealand (where he lives)! Steven makes comedy hugs for your ears with his absurd yet empathetic views on life and language. Steven is a member of New Zealand’s renowned Improv Bandits, has performed with Second City Theatricals aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines, and was a professional ensemble member at ComedySportz Chicago and Laugh Out Loud Theater. Having moved back to Nz from America in late 2016 his stand up performances made him a National Raw Quest Grand Finalist in 2017, he also co-hosts the I’ll Be Back Catalogue (Nz Comedy Guild nominated best podcast) and performs stand up regularly around Auckland.

    “He hit us with quick-fire puns, well-written material and ended with some impressive impressions used to brilliant comedic effect.”
    - Keeping Up With Nz

    About Jamie:
    Jamie Campbell is a nationally touring stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and improviser. He is wrapping up a national tour of his critically-acclaimed one-man show, The Devil on the Wall or, That Time I Got Kidnapped. His debut album, Tell Me You’re Proud of Me, debuted at #1 on Amazon’s comedy charts. In Chicago, where he began his career, he was named the city’s “Best Stand-Up Comedian” by The Chicago Reader. He is a staff writer, and one of the stars of the cult web series Lunch and Learn, which has garnered millions of online views. You may recognize him from numerous television commercials, or his appearances on NBC's Chicago Fire and Pop TV's Hollywood Darlings. He has shared the stage or worked on projects with countless legendary names in comedy and entertainment, including Hannibal Buress, Cameron Esposito, Oscar Isaac, Chris Redd, Scott Adsit, Ty Burrell, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Alicia Keys, and Dana Carvey.

    “Quick wit & inventive riffing . . . uplifting humor & big laughs!”

    Brightside Music Presents Shemekia Copeland With The Cash Box Kings

    Concert At 7:30 PM On Saturday, October 20, 2018

    Brightside Music is happy to welcome Shemekia Copeland to Valparaiso to headline our Blues Fest. Experience one of the greatest voices in blues at a venue that was practically made for it. You won't want to miss her.
    Whether she's belting out a raucous blues-rocker, firing up a blistering soulshouter, bringing the spirit to a gospel-fueled R&B rave-up or digging deep down to a subtle, country-tinged ballad, Shemekia Copeland sounds like no one else. With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive and roaring, Shemekia's wide open vision of contemporary blues, roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with a modern musical and lyrical approach.
    Copeland has performed thousands of gigs at clubs, festivals and concert halls all over the world during her decades long career. She's sung with Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, B. B. King, Buddy Guy, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Carlos Santana, James Cotton and many others. She opened for The Rolling Stones and entertained U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait.
    With her latest album Outskirts of Love and a packed tour schedule, Copeland has her eyes fixed firmly on the future as she continues to break new musical ground. "I want to be growing, to be innovative," she says. "I'm a lifert, singing about things that bother me, using my music to help people. My dad always said that 'we're all connected.' I'm an old soul marching to the beat of my own drum," she continues, "And right now I'm making the most exciting music of my career.

    A unique theatrical experience, this play attempts to convince the audience that they are watching the performance breakdown before their very eyes.  The “playwright” Lisa explains that she has written a “multi-character exploration of issues of health and illness both in the individual and in a community.”  She has hired actors to play the other characters and has even brought her mother, Ann, to observe and participate.  But from the very beginning, Ann second guesses Lisa’s telling of the story, and as the evening progresses, the other actors join in the criticism.  Ultimately Lisa is forced to confront her own biases and acknowledge the heartbreaking challenge of true empathy, even toward those we love the most.

    The authors of the musical version of The Hundred Dresses have rewritten the musical as a one-act straight play that’s perfect for competition! Wanda Petronski, a second-grader, lives way up in a shabby house in Boggins Heights, and she doesn’t have any friends. Every day she wears a faded blue dress, but she tells her classmates that she has a hundred dresses at home of all fabrics and colors. Soon Maddie, Peggy, Jack and their classmates make a game of teasing Wanda about her hundred dresses until one day she disappears from school, leaving just an empty seat where she once sat. As feelings of guilt overtake the children, Maddie and the others decide they must find out what happened to Wanda and make amends for the way they treated her. But is it too late? Bullying, friendship and forgiveness are all touched upon in this beloved Newbery Honor Book by Eleanor Estes.

    Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

    A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

    Keely and Du - by Jane Martin
    Directed by Sherry Sweeney
    An explosive and controversial drama from the author of "Talking With." Du, a right-to-life activist, and Keely, a pregnant rape victim confined by Du, transcend their circumstances and the ideological issues that separate them. "Keely and Du" is a mind-probing issue play with a gripping human face. Who is accountable? What is the extent of individual freedom? What are the rape victim's rights? What are a Christian's realities of procreation? Their passionate stories exist on the extreme edge of everyday reality.
