White Ghost Shivers at the MAC March 5 and 6

Equal parts absurd and sublime, Austin-based White Ghost Shivers descend on the McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage, 425 Fawell Blvd. in Glen Ellyn. The show, which includes a nostalgic romp through the 1920s and 1930s, is scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 5 and 6.

The performances are part of the MAC’s Club MAC series, which takes place in the intimate 183-seat Theatre 2.

Offering a Squirrel Nut Zippers flair with an almost Tim Burton twist, White Ghost Shivers present a mixture of Hokum blues, hillbilly swing, country and hot jazz, as well as dolled up costumes uniquely suited to the octet’s “bawdville” approach.

Tickets to White Ghost Shivers are $34 for adults, $32 for seniors and $24 for College of DuPage students and youth. Cabaret table seating also is available.

For more information, call the MAC Ticket Office at (630) 942-4000, or visit: www.atthemac.org.

About the MAC

Located 25 miles west of Chicago near I-88 and I-355, the McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage is a state-of-the-art facility, housing three performance spaces, an art gallery and classrooms for the college’s academic programming. This unique facility has presented theater, music, dance and visual art to more than 1.5 million people since its opening in 1986 and last year welcomed more than 75,000 patrons from the greater Chicago area to more than 230 performances.

The center offers free parking and group discounts and is home to Buffalo Theatre Ensemble, the New Philharmonic Orchestra and DuPage Opera Theatre. The result is a collection of touring and resident and student groups that foster enlightened education and performance opportunities to encourage artistic expression, promote a lasting relationship between people and art, and enrich the cultural vitality of the community.

The MAC’s extensive community outreach program includes pre-performance lectures, classes with visiting artists and the SchoolStage program, which provides students with an interactive, educational arts experience. Those and other efforts to increase community access to arts earned the MAC the Illinois Arts Council’s Partners in Excellence designation, which recognizes 40 of the most significant cultural institutions in the state.
