They are back by popular request. You asked for it and now it’s going to happen. The Wyoming History and Arts Association once again is hosting the ‘Comedians at Large’ event.
On Saturday, November 18, at the Paramount Theater, there will be another comedian show. For folks who saw Theo Von, you may recall there were a couple of talented guys that did opening acts. You may, as I, not remember their names, but they became known as The Teacher and The Student. Chris Shlichting, is a teacher, and Austin Black was his student.
These talented guys hail from Davenport, Iowa. Chris teaches in Davenport and Austin was his student. The majority of folks attending Von’s show, asked about seeing these two again. So the Wyoming History and Arts Association made it happen. They present a really good show.
This show is only one night, Saturday, November 18, in the Paramount Theater in Wyoming. This should be a great show based on the previous performance and it is recommended that you get your tickets early. Tickets can be purchased at A Few of My Favorite Things and One Eleven Coffee and at the door, if available. Another option is to send your check made out to Wyoming History and Arts Association and indicate how many tickets you would like for the comedians show and then just simply pick them up at the box office the night of the performance. Mail your check to Paramount Theater, 104 S. 7th St., Wyoming IL 61491. The show starts at 7 p.m. promptly and there is only one show. The price for this show is extremely reasonable at only $20 per ticket. Wanna a discount? See below and buy a VIP Membership card while buying your tickets and get 20% off the ticket price.
While attending, be sure to notice the finished walls and floors. New carpet adorns the main theater with a great-looking wood entrance. The theater shows the pride of the Wyoming History and Arts Association’s efforts. This bodes well for Wyoming and all of Stark County for a place to host many events and activities. Upcoming events include a 2-show event titled ‘Country Roads Take Me Home’ on December 2.
On another note, The Wyoming History and Arts Association is also offering VIP Membership cards. This is a worthwhile and inexpensive way to sustain the Paramount. The cost is only $25 a year and offers a 20% discount on any two events a year while enjoying FREE popcorn. Being a member not only supports the Theater and its operational cost, but also offers some fine discounts. When you buy a ticket to an event, purchase a membership card and save 20% and get free popcorn!
