Walt Willey brings one-man show 'Wild Bill!' to Joliet
CHICAGO (WLS) --
Actor Walt Willey is bringing his one-man show, "Wild Bill! An Evening with James Butler Hickok," to high school theater students in southwest suburban Joliet.
Audiences may remember the soap opera star best as Jackson Montgomery on "All My Children." Willey worked with students at Joliet Central and Joliet West high schools as part of an in-school program along with the show.
"Wild Bill!" explores the life of Wild Bill Hickok, an Old West legend who grew up in Troy Grove. Willey has performed the show at 20 high schools since 2012.
Willey's next shows are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Joliet West High School Auditorium. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Tickets can be purchased by calling or at showtix4u.com.
