ANONYMOUS Improv – the Secrets show! 6/21 8pm

ANONYMOUS Improv – the Secrets show! 6/21 8pm
$15 online*/$20 at the door if not sold out
Ages 16+

The Secrets 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 talking to an audience member to inspire our choices!

For improv connoisseurs, this ORIGINAL form is a slice of Living Room, part shortform game (Blind Date), and part Found Magazine/”Mortified”; For those just looking for a great time – This show promises something for everyone.

2024 Cast: Melissa Curley, Tara DeFrancisco, Andrew Johnson, Bridjet Mendyuk, Bryan Murphy, Carolyn Pierre-Louis, David Price, Rance Rizzutto, and Michael Tonovitz

Opening for Anonymous will be: Alphabet Mafia!

This will be LIVE at our 2643 N High St location, entrance off our rear parking lot.
The Nest Theatre is now a cashless operation. Payment will be handled by card, or exact change. Thanks!
