short form #improv

made up theatre's level e improvisors (this evening!)
TONIGHT ... at @madeuptheatre (on web, facebook, yelp), our graduation from level E will showcase tidbits of what we've learned during our short form improv experience ... think of it as our foray into a kind of  "whose line is it anyway?" experience
(kinda sorta)

  • where: made up theatre - 3392 seldon court, which is off of osgood road (near fry's).
  • when: sunday, tonight
    • door opens at 7:30 pm.
    • show begins at 8:00 pm (pretty promptly).
    • the show will run about an hour.
  • how much: $5 per person (for convenience, cash only, please). 

singing and insults and stories and more -
quickie preview about tonight's show ... 

  • Story/Instruction Manual - A pointing game where we are either telling a story together or reading an instruction manual together.

    meet sean
  • New Choice - A scene is being done. At anytime, the host can blow a whistle and say new choice, and the person who just said something has to say something different.
  • Replay - A set-up scene is done. After that emotions, genres, and/or accents are chosen from the audience. The scene is redone but with these suggestions incorporated into the scene (one at at time). 1 replay may be the emotions of Joy/Anger/Lust, the next may be a Western, and the next may be Shakespeare.
  • Boo-Yay! - Two people start. One person is YAY and one person is BOO. The Yay says something positive about the suggestion, and the BOO says something negative.

    meet bobby
  • Love Song - Bobby will play the guitar, and we will sing a love song together.
    • Playground Insults - Two teams. A guesser from each team goes outside, and the host gets multi-syllabic words for both teams. Using mime, the performers try to get the guessers to guess the "insult" through by pantomiming the words.
    • Blind Line - Everyone playing leaves the room. Lines of dialogue are collected from the audience and written on strips of paper. The performers do a scene and every so often read a line and incorporate it into their scene.
    • 185 - "185 *BLANKS* walk into a bar, bartender says "We don't serve *BLANKS,* so the 185 *BLANKS* say PUNCHLINE. 

    committing to bold choices and fun!
