Beware! GayCo’s FIVES OF MARCH is back!


GayCo Productions kicks off their annual $5-themed fundraiser month.

Beware the ides of March, and be generous in the FIVES OF MARCH. That’s what Chicago’s sketch comedy mainstay GayCo Productions says in its biggest annual fundraising extravaganza, held throughout the month of March.

GayCo ‑ now in its 19th year of creating subversive, thought-provoking LGBTQ comedy–has held the FIVES OF MARCH fundraiser for four consecutive years. The company asks for any and all donations that include the number five: $5, $25, $105, etc. to help fund the programming planned for 2015!bill murray

GayCo is trying to reach $5000 at the minimum. A donation of any amount with a “5’ in it helps us greatly in getting there!

Your contribution goes towards such things as rent so we can perform for you in a comfortable environment with fancy lighting that makes us appear pretty, musical directors who help us make our funny songs sound pretty, and choreographers that make us move pretty. Besides funding sexy things like postage and insurance, we also want to produce fun videos in 2015 that help you take GayCo anywhere you go.

“We are completely non-profit, meaning all those wigs and phallic props don’t buy themselves,” says ensemble member Clay Goodpasture. “We need contributions from generous fans and supporters to keep delivering great sketch comedy and pushing LGBTQ comedy forward.” Goodpasture also notes that, since GayCo is a 501(c)3, all donations are completely tax-deductible.

Reaching our goal will help GayCo Productions with its 19th season, making all our new shows possible. The ensemble has a very exciting season planned for 2015 that includes our annual Pride Show at the end of June, and a brand new Sketch revue in September.fivesIndiPic2

“We may seem as old as Liza, but we’re actually exactly as old as Lorde, and she’s cool as hell,” says ensemble member John Loos. “We’re still here, still creating fierce and fascinating comedy, and still pushing the boundaries of LGBTQ theater. And that’s truly due to the generous and amazing donations and contributions we’ve received over the years from GayCo superfans.”

The FIVES OF MARCH runs March 1 through March 31st.
