Jackalope Theatre Company, an ensemble founded and led by Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumni, wraps up its 2015-16 season with the world premiere of Prowess, running May 18-June 25 at Broadway Armory Park, 5917 N. Broadway in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood.
The play is set in contemporary Chicago. It’s summertime, and as temperatures flare, shootings spike and the city is stuck in status quo. Enter a mixed bag of underdogs ready to save whatever’s left of the day. Completely powerless but sky-high on passion, they join forces. But as broken bones multiply and alliances splinter, the team is forced to draw the line between well-meaning heroism and vigilante justice.
The production team for Prowess includes fight choreographer Ryan Bourque (BFA ’09) and assistant fight choreographer Jon Beal (BA ’11), graduates of the Columbia College Theatre Department’s acting program, and lighting designer Michael Stanfill, a teacher in the Theatre Department’s theatre design program. The cast includes Columbia College Theatre Department alum Andrew Burden Swanson.
