Come watch three improvisers (with over 85 years of combined experience) make up scenes, games, and a full story. Everything will be created on the spot: lines of dialog, movement, characters, and the storyline. In the first half, we will take your suggestions and create short scenes and games in a variety of genres, time periods, and relationships. In the second half, we will tell one continuous longer story with several connected scenes: an improvised movie.
