Get ready for a ghoulishly good time — Lake Tahoe Community College’s Random Acts of Improv group is putting on a comedy show fit for all audiences on Friday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 p.m. Head out to the Duke Theatre for Halloween-themed hilarity featuring seasoned LTCC players.
“If you’ve ever seen ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ on television, that’s the kind of thing we do. We do a lot of improv games you’d be familiar with if you watch that show, and a lot of other improv games you might not be familiar with,” LTCC Theatre Arts department director and Random Acts member Susan Boulanger said.
Random Acts of Improv has been known as the resident improvisation company of the Theatre Arts department at LTCC for six years. They bring A Night of Improvisation, a family-friendly show all about the laughs, to LTCC for off-the-wall comedy.
It truly is all about Halloween, too — guests who arrive in costume will receive Halloween candy.
“It’s just fun. This particular show has a Halloween theme. That adds extra fun to it, and we encourage people to dress up.
“We’ll be going with a lot of Halloween-related scenarios or improvisations. We always ask for audience suggestions, which would include who, what, where, those kind of things. We’ll be trying to tie some of those games into Halloween,” Boulanger added.
While the show is appropriate for children, it’s filled with humor that all ages can appreciate.
“It’s family-friendly in that subject matter is not going to be something that kids can’t handle. We definitely gear toward adults and teens — I would say everybody. We always have a lot of kids that come to see our shows. They really look forward to games where we invite the audience on stage to participate. But it’s cross-generational, and we appeal to everybody,” Boulanger stated.
This action-packed show lasts approximately one hour. Tickets cost $5 at the door and the box office opens at 7 p.m.
The Duke Theatre is on the LTCC campus, located at 1 College Drive. For additional details, contact Boulanger at 530-541-4660, ext. 240.
