Our neighborhood’s own Theatre Exile will be having their final event of the season on Thursday, June 7 at the Christ Church Neighborhood House (20 N. American Street – near 2nd and Market). From Theatre Exile’s website, here’s a description of what you’ll get at this event:

Celebrate 15 years of boundary breaking heart stopping theater with your favorite Exile stars. Support Exile with an evening of drinks, silent auction packages and performances from the amazing actors and musicians who’ve lit up our stages for the past 15 years.

The evening will be hosted by the dependably unpredictable Pearce Bunting of Broadway and Boardwalk Empire fame, the man who makes us roar with laughter and shudder with terror. Also featuring the stand up Sports News icon Joe Conklin, this is bound to be the party of the season, and you don’t want to miss it.

Are you in?

Details and ticket information can be found here. Consider spending your Thursday night supporting a great neighborhood institution and having some fun while you’re doing it.
