Your secrets…our show! Anonymous takes true, pre-written, anonymous personal stories submitted from our cast & guests, then those stories lead to conversation and comedic improvisation done by the cast. Randomly drawn from the big board, the cast has seen none of the stories prior to the conversations or improvisation – unless it’s (dramatic pause)… their own. We finish the night by bringing an audience up on stage for a nonanonymous story to inspire our choices!

For improv connoisseurs, it’s a slice of hit shows Storyteller/Living Room, part ComedySportz Blind Date, and part “Mortified”; For those just looking for a great time – This show promises something for everyone.

Cast: Nathan Berg, Tara DeFrancisco, Andrew Johnson, Leny Matos, Bryan Murphy, Ella Palardi, Kit Parsons, Carolyn Pierre-Louis, David Price, Rance Rizzutto, and Michael Tonovitz

Opening for Anonymous will be: The Nest Grads!

HERE the Musical is a feat of improvisation – a two person, fully improvised musical play. In HERE the Musical, the players get one suggestion to inspire theme through an opening number, create characters and storylines inspired by the theme, and effortlessly weave the strings together to discover one piece. Not one ounce of music has been pre-conceived before the show begins.

Tara DeFrancisco and Rance Rizzutto began touring this show well before moving to Columbus to start The Nest Theatre. They have toured this show to 80+ cities in 24+ countries! Bring your friends out to experience HERE for yourself.

Opening for HERE will be: The Nest Grads!

$12 online*/$13 at the door if not sold out
Ages 16+

Longform improv owes a majority to the Chicago form The Harold. Born from the idea of impossibility, this form has not only become a major structure for longform improv, but the format is used very frequently for television and movie scripts. Tonight you’ll see this form performed by two different groups and you’ll see how anything is possible from the simple seed of your suggestion.
