The Bench Warmers 

The Benchwarmers is a trio of professional musicians/composers/performers. Individually, they’ve played piano for countless improv shows and workshops in the Northeast and the wilderness beyond. Now, with at least thirty fingers between them, The Benchwarmers are excited (thrilled! relieved!) to move off of the piano bench and step into the limelight as improv performers in their own right. 

 

Keith Munslow is the writer/creator of Providence’s monthly live variety show The Empire Revue, and is the creative force behind the new hit, Benny’s: The Musical

Mark S. Meritt is the musical director for the Mopco Improv Theatre in Schenectady, NY and its longtime Spontaneous Broadway show. 

Eden Casteel performed in Bravo! An Improvised Musical at the CTC and also played for CTC’s full length improv shows, including Whodunit and Slamming Doors

Performance: Fri, June 8 at 5 pm
