Upcoming SHOWS & JAMs

Improv Deconstruction: One Night Only!

Join us at the Glitterbox this Wednesday, July 24 @ 8 PM as three advanced teams perform three different improv deconstructions!

A form developed by Del Close; an initial (and reoccurring) relationship scene inspires an exciting variety of other scenes including thematic, emotional, social commentary, and satirical scenes ending with a crescendo of quick scenes. The initial relationship is returned to throughout as the show explores relationships, emotions, fun and even society as a whole!

Where: the Glitterbox, 210 W 8th Ave, Homestead PA
Dates: Wednesday, July 24 only!
Time: 8:00PM
Cost: Pay what you will!

Come out to the Bloomfield Garfield Activity Center at 7:30PM for some amazing longform improvised comedy! Featuring a variety of talented local acts and teams!
