Yes, that Roseanne. This Halloween, two worlds collide. Help fund the Chicago premiere of a new horror comedy!


Well, not yet.

Your support will help bring Roseannkenstein: The Ballad of Roseanne, as Told by Frankenstein's Monster to life.

The show is set to premiere on October 19th at Gorilla Tango's Skokie Theatre - but not without your help! 

We need costumes, set pieces, an promotional items. Re-creating the worlds of Roseanne and Frankenstein ain't cheap! We would LOVE your support!

Watch us watch Roseanne here:

Fictional worlds collide in this original play; Halloween is a special night for Roseanne - but what happens when everyone's favorite domestic goddess switches places with Frankenstein's monster, Freaky-Friday style?
