Micetro Improv

Every Friday at 9:30 pm

It's the improv you deserve! Every week, our improvisers make up scenes and songs on-the-spot for your votes! You vote for your favorite scenes throughout the night. Improvisers with low scores get eliminated until we are left with the one and only Micetro Champion!

Do you worry that if you come to an improv show, you'll be picked on? Forced to get onstage? Forced to come up with suggestions? We promise that you'll never have to do anything you don't want to! We're doing this for you, so why would we make you uncomfortable? Just come and have some fun!

$8 (or $5 with a super cool Micetro card!)

Whodunit? An Improvised Murder Mystery

Saturdays, Jan 25 - Apr 4 at 7 pm

Classic whodunits with a twist: it’s all improvised! Our actors weave webs of secrets, deception, and mystery as we wind our way through a different murder each week. It's full of laughs, surprises, and lots of improv fun! It was a huge success the last two years, so we can't wait to discover new mysteries again this year.

Adults - $15, Students - $10
