Vintage fun returns for a reprised version of the iconic MADCAPS event to wrap up our 100th Year Celebration! The big buzz is about the return of MADCAPS! In case you were not around in the 1980's, MADCAPS was not just a Bishop McNamara event - it was one of the largest community events of the 1980's, drawing literally thousands of people each year who wanted to be entertained, be with friends and have fun!

The variety show event will be held at Bishop McNamara's Kankakee Site and will offer all the experiences and energy of MADCAPS past with special appearances by "The Silhouettes", The Funny Little People", and "Tim...That's Amazing Magician" all of whom began their entertainment careers during the legendary days of MADCAPS!
