Loose Cannons Improv
Thursdays 8 PM Pacific

You never know what will happen at Loose Cannons. Each show is different, exciting, dangerous, and fun. This will be a two-part improv. The first half of the night will present invited guests to perform a special show or style. You will create the suggestions and the ensemble will bring it to life.

The second half of the night’s format starts with a suggestion from the audience – this could undoubtedly be anything. Improvisers will start associating around the suggestion, and then an opening game is played. In this format, a lot of associated elements round the audience suggestions are presented. The opening game might be a song, a monologue, or simply a group association based on the audience’s suggestion. The idea is to use the elements and themes that come up or about in the opening game in what follows.

The improvisers will be loose cannons. What will they create? You decide! You are lighting the fuse.

Playborhood
Sundays 7 PM Pacific

In this improvised neighborhood, 3 households are influenced by different playwright genres. Imagine how a Shakespearian character may react to a Sondheim character breaking into song! Experience how the story unfolds as they come together, interacting within their own play-inspired reality! Each household has characters who embody all the elements of a playwright’s style as though it were part of their culture. The genre elements are as normal to them as a foreign language would be to us! The characters interact with each other, and the improv fun begins.
