Mortified stars everyday people reading aloud their most embarrassing, pathetic and private teenage diary entries, poems, love letters, lyrics and locker notes... in front of total strangers. Witness "personal redemption through public humiliation" in a refreshing show that is equal parts comedic, cathartic and voyeuristic. The largest and longest running project of its kind featuring a cast of Chicago's bravest souls. Share the shame.
Featuring pieces by Rachel Weeks, Scott Kravitz, Dan Sheehan, Kerstyne Kromer, and Debbie Ess!!!!!
Hosted by Shay DeGrandis

STREET LEVEL YOUTH MEDIA!
Street-Level Youth Media educates Chicago's urban youth in media arts and emerging technologies for use in self-expression, communication, and social change.
Street-Level’s programs build critical thinking skills in youth who have been historically neglected by policy-makers and mass media. Using video and audio production, digital arts, and the Internet, Street-Level’s young people address community issues, access advanced communication technology, and gain inclusion in our information-based society.

A portion of the proceeds from tonight's show will go to the Rock School Scholarship Fund which provides instruments and scholarship funding to cover tuition expenses based on a student’s financial need combined with their desire to actively and passionately participate in a rock school program. School of Rock believes the best way to learn music is to play music. They take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.
