Tim Campos returns to Marlene Boll Theatre in new comedy in October; tickets on sale August 17

Show Announcement August 16, 2018

DETROIT—Detroit native and current Chicago actor and playwright Tim Campos returns home to perform his latest one-person comedy Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger at The Marlene Boll Theatre.

Directed by Tonika Todorova, a Silent Theatre Company (Chicago) ensemble member and featuring live music by Elliot Taggart and set design by Grant Sabin, Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger is an hour-long physical storytelling comedy, a silent play inspired by the slapstick comedies of the 1920s with a modern sensibility. From maintaining the guard booth and lift gates to pratfalls, avoiding bees and redirecting traffic, this play has a bit of everything that can conceivably go wrong on the job of a solitary booth operator.

Tickets are $15.00 and $10.00 for students/youth. Tickets go on sale August 17 through Brown Paper tickets smitty.brownpapertickets.com.  Performance times for Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger are October 18 – 21, 2018 Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3:00pm at The Marlene Boll Theatre.
