By: Michael Soetaert

By: Mike McCafferty

     )
An evening of eight science fiction comedies that combines the uniquely weird with the incredibly awesome!

Instead, toss that "drill and...  read more

YOU TAKE IT FROM HERE
By: Bobby Keniston, Geff Moyer, Jerry Rabushka, Chris Stiles, Bradley Walton
A Collection of Improv Scenarios Based on the Use of Personification

Improvisation: Actors spontaneously creating something from nothing. Some performers find it liberating. Others, particularly beginners, are paralyzed by the freedom and need a starting point. A completely new approach to improvisational exercises, this text is designed to...  read more
