16th Street Theater Weekend
Watch Chicago Tonight on Channel 11 this Tuesday May 18 from 7 - 8 PM when writer/performer Michael Fosberg of INCOGNITO will be a guest. Michael will be on the radio this Sunday between 10-11am but unless you live near Champaign, IL you will have to listen online at WEFT. Michael ALSO was featured in our local Berwyn Life paper. We love having Michael at 16th Street. His post-show discussions with our audiences remind me why I do theater: to inspire and encourage the simple act of open and honest dialogue between strangers gathered together in a dark theater.
Imagine discovering you are not the person you thought you were. That you have a family, a history, an ethnicity you never knew. Michael Fosberg’s search for his father is told in his true one-man show about identity, race, stereotypes and “how, in an instant, one’s sense of self can be altered forever.” – Jack Helbig, Daily Herald “An engrossing and deeply moving trip.. It will shake you to your own roots.”

The Berwyn Development Corporation established the Chicagoland Great American Mutt Show to fill the unmet demands of dog lovers searching for a venue to showcase the spirit and individuality of their dogs. The event features a wide variety of lively entertainment-based competitions for mutts and purebreds alike. What's more, a new "Interactive Zone" will provide participants and their pooches with the opportunity to test treats such as pupcakes, scrumptious dog-friendly cupcakes; exercise their creative sides in vying to be the next Pupcasso, the doggie version of Picasso with mess-free paw painting; and walk on the wild side by testing out doggie tattoos. Even if the family dog is not of the sporting kind, there will be plenty to taste, smell, and paw.
* All dogs, whether participating in a contest or just visiting, must provide proof of vaccination prior to the event or at the entrance on the day of the event. All dogs must be leashed at all times.
New Cutest Mutt Contest
New this year is the online "Cutest Mutt" Contest that will rely on e-votes from friends and family to make the cut for the day of the show. The pre-event winner will receive a gift card!
Prizes for All
Prizes for Everyone
No dog goes home empty handed! All contest entrants will receive a free goodie bag. Contest winners will receive first prize ribbons. The top 3 dogs in the Best in Show grand finale competition will be awarded a cash prize. The 2010 Top Dog will also receive a plaque, a membership to the Brookfield Zoo, a free consultation with an animal communicator (think Dog Whisperer) and will be included on 2011 Mutt Show marketing materials.
