ImproVision is Seven


We're in our second full week.  So far we've done eleven shows, one workshop and had one family rent our cabin.

Today the third actor of the season arrives.  He is the third of twenty-five.

So far we're only doing one show a night but soon we'll start adding 10pm shows until we have a 10pm show every night but Sunday.

This weekend brings COA Graduation and the first ImproVision of this season.  ImproVision is a collaboration with Reel Pizza that we've done for the last seven years.  Basically they pick out a terrible B movie, we get a barebones breakdown (i.e. a man enters at 2 minutes, a woman in pink is in one scene); and then we find out what the movie is when you the audience does, the movie is shown without sound and we improvise a new storyline and a soundtrack for the movie based on an audience suggestion.  The audience suggestion is given via a Wheel of Styles which is spun by one lucky audience member.

The movies are truly terrible, "classics" like Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Frogs and Attack of the 50ft Woman.  We give the movie a whole new storyline and even a new theme song.

The posters for the show are very popular.  They are awesome.  I wish I had a pic of one but I don't.  The artist who makes them uses images like this but with great taglines like, "Like a Wet Primordial Slap of Comedy!"

The Seventh season of ImproVision starts this Friday at 11pm at Reel Pizza.  You can get tickets at the Reel Pizza box office.  Take a nap and then come to the show!
