Unscripted Improv Show
GreenRoom’s crack team of performers strings together hilarious, family-friendly sketches in its 90-minute Unscripted Improv shows. Inspired by Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the group eschews rehearsed bits and memorized jokes from popsicle sticks in favor of freshly hatched scenes based on audience suggestions. Uproarious pieces include games in which teams compete for chuckles and long-form narratives inspired by the crowd’s volunteered life stories. A live pianist accompanies improvised songs with tunes crafted on the fly.
When a group of students at Elgin’s Judson University found out the school’s theater program had been shut down, they might have devoted themselves to more reliable career paths such as finance or badger taming. Instead, they banded together to found their very own performance troupe: GreenRoom Productions. Centered around improvisational comedy, the company’s core members host twice-monthly shows where they entertain audiences with off-the-cuff sketches and games.
