Five Play Improv and Laugh Track City
Each Saturday evening, Made Up Theatre’s alternating teams of improv experts take turns inducing chuckle fits with off-the-cuff comedy routines fueled by audience suggestions. The laugh-hoarding jokesters that compose Five Play Improv explore the innate hilarity of human relationships through 30- to 45-minute skits that revolve around life’s relatable occurrences, such as dating or getting dumped for a ritzy storefront mannequin. Meanwhile, Laugh Track City’s charismatic cast rouses laughs during fast-paced 90-minute performances packed with improvised games and interactive scenes reminiscent of Whose Line Is it Anyway?.
Made Up Theatre
Using audience suggestions as a creative springboard, Made Up Theatre’s quartet of resident performers conjures chortles with fully improvised scenes, games, and musical numbers every Saturday night at 8 p.m. Free two-hour classes grant guests of varying performance backgrounds an opportunity to sample the art of improv before climbing through three ranks of classes that emphasize quick responses and structuring longer-form scenes. Made Up Theatre also totes its trick bag to the corporate world with team-building seminars that draw upon improv’s communicative foundation to improve group interactions and send stress off to take up residence in rant-fueled standup comics.
