WICKER PARK — Did you forget to order tickets for the 10th annual Fly Honey Show, which debuts this weekend?
Well, you’re in luck.
As of 10 a.m. Monday, an additional 20 seated and 35 standing tickets for the previously sold-out show were up for grabs on The Fly Honey Show’s website.
Performances will take place nightly at The Den Theatre, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave., in Wicker Park Thursday-Saturday, Aug. 8-Sept. 7.
Feeling spontaneous? A limited number of tickets will also be sold at the box office at 8 p.m. on each performance day, said Carrie Sloan, a spokesperson for The Fly Honey Show. Buyers must be at The Den in person to secure night-of first-come-first-serve tickets.
The Fly Honey Show is a “fierce and feminist dance and variety show” based on high-energy large group dance ensembles, story telling, comedy and musical performances — all of which are backed by a nine-piece live band.
Themes driving The Fly Honey Show include the elevation of women and people who are transgender, non-binary, gay, lesbian or queer. The show will also celebrate bodies, sex and self-ownership.
Choreographer and director Erin Kilmurray created The Fly Honey Show ten years ago.
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to Ultraviolet, a national organization founded in 2012.
Ultraviolet’s 1.2 million members advocate for intersectional feminist culture and political change.
For example, in July, Ultraviolet organized a Chicago demonstration in light of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team’s fight for equal pay, according to the Tribune.
“The message that Fly Honey has been imparting for the past decade feels prescient given the cultural moment we find ourselves in now, particularly in the modern feminist movement rooted in acceptance, self-celebration and action,” Sloan said.
