Directed by Tonika Todorova, a Silent Theatre Company (Chicago) ensemble member and featuring live music by Elliot Taggart and set design by Grant Sabin. Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger is an uproarious hour-long physical storytelling comedy that is too funny for words. A silent play inspired by the slapstick comedies of the 1920s with a modern sensibility that is fun for the whole family! From maintaining the guard booth and lift gates to pratfalls, avoiding bees and redirecting traffic, this play has a bit of everything that can conceivably go wrong on the job of a solitary booth operator, Smitty Harbinger, while he attempts to deal with and overcome every challenging situation before he smitties everything up.
Performance times for Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger are Saturday, August 17 at 2pm and 7:30pm, Sunday, August 18 at 2pm at Beatniks on Conkey. Tickets are $15.00 and $10.00 for students/youth.
Beatniks on Conkey is located at 420 Conkey Street, Hammond, IN.

“Watching Tim Campos as Smitty Harbinger was like watching Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin live on stage. I loved watching Campos interact with the booth—designed by Grant Sabin—and go to the physical extreme to reach the absurdity of the silent films.” - Scapi Magazine
“From these mundane launch points playwright and actor Tim Campos uses his clown energy to catapult us into forgetting the big bad world out there and just having a good laugh.” - Picture This Post
“Tim Campos’s physical comedy is what makes the show so much fun in dealing with everyday nuisances that normally would not be a battle as it was for Smitty.” – Chicago Splash Magazine
“Tim Campos, hailing from Detroit but currently residing in Chicago, will be getting a bill from me. I’m certain that I’m going to need medical attention after laughing so hard during his one-man show, Smitty Harbinger: Keep Your Guard Up, Smitty Harbinger.” Encore Michigan
