Wrestler registration for CLLAW 19 is now live!  

The Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestlers (CLLAW) are ready to rock & roll at CLLAW XIX on Friday, July 25, 2014 at Logan Square Auditorium, 2539 N. Kedzie Ave. in Chicago.  Presented by Sideshow Theatre Company, CLLAW’s 19th bout will feature Chicago’s biggest, baddest and most belligerent lady arm wrestlers decked out in over-the-top outfits with fast-talking managers, ebullient entourages and shady referees.

Tickets for CLLAW XIX are $10 with a cash bar available. Doors open at 10 pm with the first match beginning at 10:30 pm. All proceeds from CLLAW XIX will benefit Sideshow Theatre and our partner charity, {she crew}. {she crew} is a six-week summer program for girls, ages 12 to 14, to engage in a multi-disciplinary journaling workshop that culminates in a theatrical performance written entirely by the participants.

Lumberjack Jill. Killer Bee. Anne Hackaway. Bust Your Tooth Bluth. Their names echo through the ages. They come from all corners of Chicago, united only by one dream: to elbow their way through the competition and wrestle their way to the top.  With Master of Ceremonies Rokke L. Squelch, and a couple of questionable referees to control them, twelve not-so-lady-like ladies in outrageous costumes volunteer their time to vie for that most cherished prize – the bedazzled CLLAW gloves. Who will leverage their way up the bracket?  Or bribe their way to the top? All these questions and more will be answered, and all of Chicago is invited to bear witness.

Not content to leave the fun in the arms of its competitors, CLLAW XIX gets everyone in on the action. Audience members have the opportunity to purchase CLLAWBUX, the official currency of CLLAW, throughout the night. With their CLLAWBUX, onlookers can bet on their favorite wrestlers to prevail, and maybe slip a few to the referees to even the score. All CLLAWBUX purchased also go towards fantastic raffle prizes.
