Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

Our 9pm Family Friendly show was a blast with a cast of Daniel, Tim, Amy, Audrey, David and our FAM Angela. We kicked the show off with a Do Run all about our FAM. Fortunately, Unfortunately was all about Ariel and the small fish woman. Boston tea and fish market macaroni smelled rotten but were hard to understand through the water. Lines From a Cup was a day in the life of the expecting pepperoni surgeons who stop, drop and roll. Interrogation Line Up had our cast have to guess and confess that they committed the crime of loitering while eating mac and cheese in a muffin at Chuck E Cheese’s with Nikolai Tesla who holds an Elmo Doll. We played Say it Again next: Oranges were in icy bran muffins but it didn’t hold water. Quick Scenes brought us Lizzy McGuire, Trash, pizza every day and Santa’s Lying Cookies. Sports Commentator covered the Remote Battery Changing Olympics where the AAA’s were switched with the AA’s and use 9volt battery testing kit. Carol Ann got trapped in the TV but everyone was a winner!

We ended the evening with an epic argument in Debate Club!

It is 7pm at the Warwick Center for the Arts and we had great fun at our Family Friendly Improv Comedy Show! On cast were Tim, Amy, Emily, David and Audrey. Our FAM was Ashley, who is a talented musician who plays Flute in high school band while in middle school. If she had all the money in the world, she would like to visit the Grand Canyon. FAM Growing and Shrinking Machine featured all things Ashley. We joined an instrument wielding child, a lip gloss swap, a Grande Canyon, still life apples, phone thieves and the mind of Douglas. Our FAM joined us for a game of Sit, Stand and Lie Down where Kerrygold Butter was at the end of the Rainbow!  Two-Headed monster was all about an experience in second-grade science class where we tested liquids and described them. Madam Zelda (Emily) had to guess that Daniel is going to have Banana and Strawberry pancakes tomorrow. Next year there is going to be a snowstorm in the summer, and an 8 legged shark will fight and be beaten by a mouse.

Revolver had scenes about Elementary School Science, Chair, Tying Your Shoes and Matching Socks. Sherlock Holmes had a tin of water, tube socks went to prom, the chair and parents were stolen and the fishing was not going well. Worlds’ Worst introduced the worst gymnasts, psychiatrists and shoe salesfolk. Follow That Action had bad mittens of goose feather at the medieval joust horse challenge sale.  We wrapped up the show with a game of Sing It for our FAM.

Our Late Night Comedy Show at the Warwick Center for the Arts was a Birthday Blast for our FAM Marcia, with Erich, Ian, Tim, Emily and Daniel on the cast. Marcia works in medical billing, enjoys strawberry cheesecake, would love to go to Vegas and someday might like to have a pet pit bull. Sing It featured whispering mammals, cheesecake and trying really hard to get excited. Trolley Stop introduced such characters as smoking gentlemen, detectives following trails, catty co-workers and paranoid future prisoners. Two-Headed Monster helped Harry find his wand. Daniel was Madam Zelda and he had to guess that Emily would get in a car accident this week, will swim with a shark and have a baby, and will wear two left shoes. Movie Critics was all about “Pit of Bulls”, a Sci-Fi film about lovers scorned and their lively adventures. Debate Club caused all kinds of arguments about honesty, cheesecake, inner peace, and A Christmas Story. Growing and Shrinking Machine had Hawaiian Beaches, works of art, exercise, dancing digit boogies and sensitive cookies. We ended the show with Highlander!

Our Family Friendly Friday show was Frightfully Funny! With a fast consisting of Daniel, Ian, Emily, Erich and Tim. Our FAM was Andrea, who is a full-time parent who loves embarrassing her child, youth collective member Matthew. She loves hiking and participating in circus sports 23 feet of the ground. She loves Fan Fics, has a doctorate degree, and speaks several languages including Acadian and Hebrew. We started the evening with a FAM Remake of Andrea’s life, “Only Up, Not Down…” As a crime drama, Sci-Fi film and Anime. Tableau brought us hiking in the mountains with a billygoat, a volcanic game of rock, paper, scissors and stargazing with Orion’s Belt. Lines from a Cup assured us that the cookie baker was healthy but he called to say he forgot. We played Dating Game next, and Erich had to guess that his choices were Aladdin, a toothbrush and a hot air balloon.

Sing It! Was a rousing musical with inspired and ingenious musical numbers such as “You Better Light the Fire”, “You can do it if you try or else” and “I don’t want to come near you.” Quick Scenes entertained with prepositions, illiterate archeologists and Alaskan igloos in Venice.   Good, Bad and Ugly brought us advice on shoe shopping, wrestling and befriending parrots. Our final game was Debate Club, where we argued about empowerment in your 20’s but it is character that counts and you should do more than 2 characters in improv when you are 46.

It is six o’clock on a gorgeous early summer evening, and our Youth Collective had a great show! On cast were Gussy, Abby, Aidan, Shea and Matthew. Our FAM was Patrick who likes pancakes and pizza and would save the world with a time machine and a laser gun. Maybe he wants to be a spy when he grows up, or a video game designer.

We started the show with a round of chainsaw, turning a cowgirl in space with bubbles into a farmer or a cow or a dairy farmer in space with bubbles. Busta Rap rhymed cooks, spy, butter and machine. We finished the show with a debate club about the movements of Mario in the game world, spinning in circles for exercise, thinking and popping wheelies at a derby for a trophy.

Our 9pm Late Night Comedy Show at the Warwick Center for the Arts had a great cast with Krissy, Audrey, Josh, David, Ian and Amy. Our FAM was Rose, who is celebrating her 18th birthday. If she could give Josh a birthday gift, it would be a fancy guitar. If Josh gave her a gift, she would want a cow that hugs. She is going skydiving on Sunday and works at Target, where she spends all of her money. We began the evening with a FAM remake of Rose’s trip to Croatia, which was utterly disturbing in every way possible. Tableau brought us to Target, a shoe store, a moonlit drive with werewolves, an accountant’s desk, and a pumpkin patch. Sing It went skydiving, where we had musical numbers about jumping, charging camera batteries and painted backpacks, the expense of clown college, and poor landings. Interrogation Lineup had our culprits confess to cow tipping in a music store with cookie monster. Meanwhile, scratch and sniff stickers and clothing were not the best idea but the mannequins were live and HR was blind. We played Busta Rap next, and then The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. We wrapped up the evening with a song for our FAM Rose!

Our 7pm Family Friendly Improv show at The Warwick Center for the Arts had Ian, David, Amy, Audrey, Krissy and Josh on cast, and our FAM was Linda who is the principal of a school for special education. Her favorite lunch to bring in is chicken and broccoli and fruits and veggies but really just coffee. If she could train a polar bear to do anything, it would be herding her pet cats. Our first game was FAM Revolver, with scenes inspired by our FAM, titled “Fetch the Cat”, “Arctic Fox”, “Motorcycle” and “Truly Terrified”. The Siamese Cat required special precautions, vegan fur was stunning to behold, but vegan cars not so much. Not to mention madcap minuscule motors and a captivating coffee crisis. Sports Commentator featured the grass cutting Olympiad. Power mowers were banned, the cows cut the grass but as long as the checks cleared they could win! Last Line, First Line highlighted coworkers, blender, and veggies/fruits. Brilliant Inventions could ship out by the millions! Chainsaw turned a mermaid  in the Chinese White House with Starbuck’s Coffee into a dancer on the set of the movie Ghost with an egg timer. Short Cutz proved that koalas actually do make good friends, and the cat’s meow was the Lion King at the potato farm in Poland. Greatest Hits brought a musical flair with Songs of the Truly Terrifying, like the 50’s rock classic…the Broccoli That Ate Cincinnati. Freeze Tag was energetic and exciting with blue water, zero miles, jumping bowling ball contamination, glowing security and innovative exercises in technology. We ended with a song for our FAM Linda!

It was a beautiful Friday night at the Warwick Center for the Arts for our Youth Collective show featuring Jeffrey, Matthew and Abby. Our FAM was Hannah, who loves Gregg’s Coconut Raspberry Cake and would bring a sword and a slice of pizza on a mission to save the world. Sit, Stand and Lie Down was our first game, followed by Timmy in the well. Jeffrey had to guess that Jack (of beanstalk fame) fell asleep in the mud at the bank. Slogans was our next game, with catchy slogans for such things as meteorologists and coconut raspberry cake. Revolver involved scenes about penguins, chupacabra and lemon meringue pie. We ended the show with a round of Busta Wrap!

It’s 9pm at the Warwick Center for the Arts, and on cast were Erich, Emily, Alan, Amy, Daniel and Audrey. Our FAM was Danielle, who teaches and is working on an English Ph.D. in Renaissance Drama, and wants to take a Shakespearean acting class. Her favorite play right now is Richard II and she wants to visit Disney again to ride Splash Mountain. We started the night off with a FAM revolver. The driveway became a sandwich, a wedding disaster made the bride dissolve into a soup of tears, the weapons were poorly wielded and the beverages were consumed. Sports Commentator brought us to the Hypnosis Olympic Championship. Clocks on strings and wasps made Dave obey and believe his pants were on fire.

Short Cutz involved aquatic mammals who made horrid puns while attempting to pass a college class in a poorly executed Italian accent. Good Cop/Bad Cop made Emily had to guess that she ordered Chinese food made from dolphins at Caesar’s Palace with Milli Vanilli. Lines from a Cup was next. Let’s take a cab to travel by moose since we fell and we cannot get up, but we prefer elephants instead. Freeze Tag entertained with Clark Kent and Superman, a bullseye, a magic 8 ball of marriage, and a dead redshirt. We wrapped up with a Do-Run!

BYOI – That’s Just My Face…

Birthday Party, Featured Audience Members, Show Recap No Comments »

Our 7pm at the Warwick Center for the Arts and we had a great show! On cast were Erich, Audrey, Emily, Daniel, Amy and Alan. Our FAM was Zachary who is celebrating his 12th birthday. He loves math, and if he had any superpower he would be super fast. His favorite animal would be a zebra platypus hybrid. We began the game with a FAMily reunion. The birthday party was awesome but there was no zoo. There was chocolate cake, which dad thought was excessive, and the science teacher crashed the bash!

Sit, Stand and Lie Down brought us to a fishing boat in Maine. The fish were flying, the moon was a sight to behold, and the deck was slick. Centerpiece had our volunteers and cast rotating through scenes inspired by the words lakehouse, wood, Robin Hood and zebras. Friar Tuck was not impressed by the size of Little John until he got some perspective, the lions found the hiding zebra, the man with the chainsaw was not wearing a mask, and the woodpeckers were bored so they got helmets for their headache. For Timmy In the Well, Amy had to guess that Beyonce got hit by a ham in the freezer.

Say it Again brought us to Florida, where Grandma and Grandpa brought Missy to Sea World but she wanted to go to Arkansas. The basketballs on the walker were why grandpa was dribbling. Slogans introduced brilliant advertising for Oreos, cabbage, socks, sand and sardines. Fortunately/Unfortunately was next! Zachary helped his teacher with math during science class. We capped it off with a Busta Rap!
