Join the Portuguese Rodeo Clown Company for an exclusive fund raiser for the Illinois Council of the Blind. It will be 83 minutes of unscripted comedy for an exclusive engagement on Friday, October 11.

Tickets are just $10 with proceeds going to benefit the great work The Illinois Council of the Blind does for the visually impaired.
The Portuguese Rodeo Clown Company is a group of improvisational actors that have been performing for nearly 20 years in the Midwest and have built a loyal following in Central Illinois. The show will feature a series of scenes made up entirely on the spot based on suggestions from the audience. Similar to improvisational performances seen on Who’s Line is it Anyway or Chicago’s Second City, five actors will take to the stage with no script and create an evening of entertainment.
This fundraiser is open to the public, and will be at 6:00 pm on Friday, October 11 at The Hoogland Center for the Arts. Tickets can be purchased by calling 217-523-2787 or online at www.hcfta.org. Please make sure you purchase under “comedy for a cause”.
