Kickstart Your Heart with our karaoke fundraiser!

Come and sing your hearts out on Saturday, October 17, as Strangeloop hosts a karaoke fundraiser in honor of our seventh anniversary in the downstairs room at Matilda’s.

Your $10 gets you into the event at babyAtlas where you can wow us all with your singing talent and get discovered by The Voice and American Idol!* Karaoke is free with entry, but all the money, including tips, goes to support Strangeloop’s 8th Season. So tip freely! Don’t want to sing, but enjoy the public humiliation of others? For an additional $10 you can select a Strangeloop Company Member to sing a song of your choosing.

Karaoke not your thing? That’s OK, we’ve got a lot more to tempt you to a not-at-all creepy basement in Lakeview where, for example, you can get your photo taken with Krampus or Santa. Like we said, NOT AT ALL CREEPY.

In addition to Krampus (representing our holiday show of the same name), we’ll have a Greek fortune teller reading your coffee grounds (representing our spring show Mitera) and a whole lot of raffle love (representing our Valentine’s Day show – OK that was a bit of a stretch, but it’s a party, just roll with it). Come and mingle with our company members and our artistic collaborators, enjoy drink specials and learn more about our upcoming season.

Our Seventh Anniversary Party and Fundraiser takes place 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, October 17, 2015, at babyATLAS (Matilda’s downstairs room), located at 3101 N. Sheffield Ave., Chicago, IL 60657. Admission is $10.

Along with the fundraising party we are running a Kickstarter campaign. Anyone donating more than $10 before October 17 will get free admission to the party. Anyone donating $100 or more will have a five-minute play written about them. And if you donate before October 17, that play will also get a staged reading at the party. There are a ton of other reward levels filled with a variety of season-related gifts.

This online fundraiser runs through the end of October, so if you can’t make the in-person event, you can still help us in our pursuit of the undiscovered.
