SHARE Snack Theater

The cast of Snack Theater includes retired teachers, administrative assistants, recent college grads, a marketing director and an architect.

This motley company is currently staging its 25th Annual Performance. 

Snack Theater began as a group of neighbors in the basement of Rogers Park's St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church.

It's since expanded to include the larger community. 

But after 25 years of elaborately constructed sets and numerous costume changes, it appears the curtain may be coming down for the final time this Saturday night.

That's because producer Julie Kent is retiring. 

We stopped by one of their rehearsals recently and have this audio postcard.

The final two performances of Snack Theater's Jubilation are this Friday and Saturday night.

They will be performing to sold-out audiences both nights.
