RCN Chicago Partners with Mudlark Theater to Present Larkabout 2017

Local award-winning TV, internet and voice services provider to serve as marquee sponsor for the theater’s annual benefit

CHICAGO, IL – September 12, 2017 - RCN Chicago, industry-leading provider of high-speed internet, digital TV and phone services, has been named the marquee sponsor of Mudlark Theater’s annual benefit, Larkabout 2017, which will be held on September 22 at the historic Hilton Orrington in downtown Evanston.

Funds raised go directly to Mudlark’s Milk Jug Fund, which supports a season of thirteen theatrical productions starring young performers from Evanston. The benefit also provides over $20,000 in scholarships for young people to receive high quality arts education in the form of camps, classes and products at Mudlark.

“We at Mudlark are grateful to RCN for helping us sustain our growth and further our mission of making real theater with young people,” said Michael Miro, Mudlark’s executive director. “Mudlark and RCN share a lot of the same values as both companies put a strong focus on serving local communities and connecting directly with those people we serve. A partnership like ours makes a lot of sense, and we look forward to continuing to work together to provide Chicago residents with entertainment.”

“Mudlark Theater provides a valuable and quality experience through the arts to the children and residents of Evanston and surrounding communities,” said Tom McKay, general manager of RCN Chicago. “RCN shares a passion in serving customers and our local communities. By supporting a cause that helps build strong relationships with the community, we continue to build upon our relationships and cultivate news ones.”

About Mudlark Theater
Mudlark Theater is a not-for-profit organization where children are taken seriously as artists, and learn theater by making it. As a rule, the general public expects little of children’s theater. Mudlark's goal is to raise that expectation and keep it there. By holding children to a higher standard and empowering them to make strong artistic choices, we create the possibility for great theater—vibrant, funny, compelling shows that erase the boundary between youth and professional theater.
