Alderman Arena and Filament Present Living Diorama


Alderman Arena, Cyd Smilie, Arts Alive 45, Portage Park, Filament, Theatre, Theater, ChicagoCHICAGO, IL – As part of his continuing effort to reinvigorate the historic Six Corners area of the 45th Ward, Alderman John Arena and Arts Alive 45 have partnered with Filament Theatre Ensemble to present “Four Actors in Search of a Holiday Memory.”

Four actors from Filament will improvise holiday vignettes, set in a retro storefront along the Milwaukee Avenue corridor in the Six Corners shopping district.
“This is another imaginative use of storefront space to draw attention to the potential of Six Corners,” Alderman Arena said. “I want to demonstrate my commitment to rebuilding our business districts through a unique partnership with art and culture.”

The living diorama begins Saturday, December 17th between noon and 3 p.m., at 4047 N. Milwaukee Avenue. The audience will stand, framed by the U-shaped store windows where the actors will perform.

The theatre production is part of an all-day holiday affair, sponsored by the Six Corner Association, featuring a holiday sing-a-long accompanied by acclaimed organist Jay Warren on a historic Kimball pipe organ at the Portage Theater. Following the performance, the Portage Theater will show the film, “A Christmas Story.”
