Tahoe Improv Players: Each show is unique

Provided to the Tribune

The Tahoe Improv Players have been making people laugh for 13 years, and that’s exactly what they will be doing July 10 at the Valhalla Boathouse Theater. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

“As long as we keep getting suggestions from the audience, we’ll keep improvising,” said Gerry Orton, the troupe’s director and show host. Along with being family friendly, something the players take great pride in, each show is unique. It’s the audience that makes the real difference. They always come with something new and challenging and fun.”

Orton offers “milking a sea gull” as a great example of what audiences throw out at the players.

Members of the improv group include Johnny Bolton, Colin Burrows, Paul Dancer, Dave Fabrizio, who also provides musical accompaniment, and Frank Riley, a co-founder with Orton. Jen Tobin moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Other players will be audience members who volunteer to be in some of the scenes, always an audience favorite.

Tickets for the evening of fun and laughs are $10 per person and $5 for children younger than 12. For more information contact the Tahoe Tallac Association at (530) 541-4975.
