After this last crazy month of hurricanes, flooding, quakes, and ashfall from epic wildfires, not to mention the teensy weensy possibility of nuclear war, we could all use a laugh. Fortunately for all you world-weary souls, Magenta Improv Theater is here to hit the “refresh” button on your personal laugh track. There’s one last improv show of the summer, and it’s happening at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16—and this show is special, because it’s the 43rd show in the troupe’s eight-year history! Actually, 43 is kind of random. BUT THAT’S WHY IT’S FUNNY.
Anyhow, more about Magenta Improv Theater: it’s completely family-friendly, so bring the kids AND grandma. The Magenta Theater has air conditioning and concessions—and if you want to come early or stay late for a bite to eat, there’s Niche Wine Bar and Willem’s on Main nearby. The show, which is modeled very loosely after “Who’s Line Is It, Anyway?” and encourages audience participation for suggestions and narrative embellishments, is different every time.
Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door, while supplies last. Tickets are available at http://www.MagentaTickets.com/tickets or at the box office on the day of the show. Doors open at 7 p.m. The Magenta Theater is located at 1108 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. To learn more about this popular community theater, visit www.magentatheater.com.
