Strangeloop Theatre Presents KRAMPUS!

He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good…or he’ll beat you with switches and rusty chains, stuff you in a basket and drag you to the fiery depths below…

…Oh yes, boys and girls, Krampus is coming.

It isn’t enough that a family has to deal with the usual drama that comes with Christmas, but the Murray family has to do it in the isolation of a cabin in the woods, during a snow storm with a holiday devil running amok and only some peppermint schnaps to get them through it. Will there be enough Christmas spirit for all to survive?

This holiday season Strangeloop Theatre presents “Krampus!” written by Company Member Jacyln Jensen and Mike Wozniak and directed by Company Member Maria Burnham.

The cast includes: Jean E. Burr, Justin Fill, Sean Harklerode, Stefanie Johnsen, Allison McCorkle, Paul Tinsley, Michael Wagman and Chad Wise.

Who is Krampus? In European folklore, Krampus is the hell-bound companion of Saint Nicholas. With cloven hooves, a long tongue and goat-like horns, Krampus (also known as Black Peter) punishes the naughty children while Saint Nicholas rewards the good.

This year Strangeloop expands its annual holiday show from two nights in one location to four nights in two locations. Krampus will be all around.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. On Monday, December 7, and Tuesday, December 8, you can find “Krampus!” at Mary’s Attic in Andersonville (5400 N. Clark St., Chicago, 60640). And on Monday, December 14, and Tuesday, December 15, “Krampus!” will be at Underground Wonder Bar in River North (710 N. Clark St., Chicago 60654).

Tickets are $10 in advance via Brown Paper Tickets ( or $12 at the door. More information is available at!

WildClaw Theatre Company proudly presents DEATHSCRIBE 2015, the Eighth Annual International Festival of Radio Horror Plays on Monday, December 7th, at 8:00pm. This collection of bone-chilling audio nightmares will be performed live at the historic Mayne Stage Theatre, 1328 W. Morse Ave, Chicago. Admission is $25 ($20 in advance of Nov 1, $23 for students with identification).

In our continued quest to acquire original, imaginative horror stories, we solicited and received over 100 new works from theatre and horror aficionados around the world. These final five radio plays have emerged, perhaps slightly bloodstained, as finalists of the grueling selection process. Join us to see who will be this year’s victor and winner of the coveted Bloody Axe award!

The five finalists will send thrills up your spine as they are brought to life by Chicago’s finest actors and directors, accompanied by a live band and a team of sound effects artists – complete with live foley onstage. The winner of the Bloody Axe will be chosen by a panel of horror and theatre experts.

After eighteen years of creating award winning short films, local Director Michael Ramova premieres his first feature film Panteon Woods at the Logan Theatre (2646 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647) on November 14th at 5:30 pm, introducing the public to his own brand of cinéma vérité.

“There was literally no money, just determination and a script. I thought to myself, ‘I just want to shoot this thing, and I have a lot to say.’ It worked out for the best. If the film had been shot as a glossy production, it would have lacked the realism that we ultimately achieved.” Michael Ramova (Director).

Ramova prepares to launch Panteon Woods, an exciting thriller with shocking twists, proving that quality entertainment can come from even the smallest of budgets. Tickets are available online via
