Big thanks to iO Chicago
We'd simply like to thank each and every supporter today. We are working out the details to get the scholarship up and running so individuals can start applying. But it is bcause you, everyone who gave what they could, that this is even possible.
Supporters, thank you!
Nick in action!
Our good friend, Dino was kind enough to make a video montage of Nick's performaces from iO Chicago. After one year of classes and training at iO Chicago, students would perform together for an eight week run of shows on Sunday nights. Each show unique, never to be duplicated.
After the graduation shows, Nick was placed on the iO Harold team, Villian. This year Villian was named "Best New Harold Team of the Year" at the Del Close Awards last week in Chicago.

Goal -----> Doubled!

Thank you to everyone who made The Annoyance Theater a packed house this past Sunday! It was a joyous event to celebrate an afternoon of Wieme.
For the individuals who spoke, or helped create a video - there was so much love and laughter in one room because of you! Of course thank you for those who helped organize the event and to Mick and Jen for lending their space!
Supporters, you're wonderful! Facebook 'likers', flawless PR work!
"I can only donate $5 ?" -says reader who is more than likely indoors for the next 24 hours due to the Mid West snow storm.
*** $5 helps, $1 does count, sharing our page with friends *** Everything counts! ***

It is a specific number for a reason. It's the tuition amount for one year of improv classes at The Annoyance Theater in Chicago.
If Nick wasn't taking a class, you might have seen him attending a show, on stage to perform himself, or sitting in their bar lounge reading a book. He enjoyed all things Annoyance.
It's our great honor to work with Mick Napier and The Annoyance Theater to host the beneficiary of The Nick Wieme Improv Scholarship.
