Laugh the night away with fellow Village members! Join us at the world-famous Annoyance Theatre & Bar in the heart of Chicago’s Belmont Theater District, where trained improvisers will lead the group through improv “games” that allow you to cavort with other like-minded souls, get messy, build stories that dissolve into laughter, explore new talents, and explode the boundaries of what you think is possible. Absolutely zero theater experience required – this event is for everyone, and we really mean everyone, who can bring an open mind, a willingness to play and a desire to laugh. No need even to find a friend to come with – everyone is friends by the end of the night! Light snacks are included with the cost of the program, and drinks will be available for purchase from the bar.

The Village Chicago invites you to a lively discussion of how immersion technology is changing the way we live, learn and care. We have assembled a panel of trailblazers who are harnessing virtual and augmented reality to improve your quality of life and health. Imagine being guided through a large, unfamiliar airport with no anxiety; or through a smoke-filled building to safety; consider the impact on your loved one’s caregiver after virtually experiencing Alzheimer’s. Join us for a conversation exploring how immersion technology is transforming our well-being at all ages and stages of life – and be inspired to suggest new ways it can be put to use.
