Dining & Entertaining

Yeah! That’s the ticket!

There is a sentiment around these parts, that because Crystal Lake is so close to Chicago the suburban caliber of work is somehow lessened.

Every third Thursday, programming permitted, Williams Street Rep’s Comedy troupe performs at Raue Center For The Arts providing the audience with endless laughs with their improv and sketch comedy shows!

When asked why do a “new work,” director Brad Raimondo referred to the inexhaustible classics, but in noting the 2,500 years of Western theatre, he also realizes “that every one of those plays we have today because it was a new play once.”

Dogs, sheep and pigs (three different ones, as a matter of fact) are coming to the Raue Center this March via Pink Droyd.

There are many different careers, but not many as unique as broadcasting and comedy.

On February 25, he Crystal Lake Strikers will present An Evening of Percussion. The performance will feature the Crystal Lake All-Star Drumline as well as talented ensembles from around McHenry County. The Crystal Lake Strikers is a marching percussion unit that performs at major sporting events, parades and festivals around the country.
