Tickets $12
Ages 16+

HERE the Musical is a feat of improvisation – a two person, fully improvised musical play. In the HERE the Musical 2/29 show, 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. Music improvised by David Schmoll!

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 60+ cities in 22+ countries! Bring your friends out to experience HERE for yourself.

Opening for HERE will be Storyteller!

ComedySportz 2/28 7:30pm
$10 online*/$12 at the door if not sold out
All Ages

ComedySportz is arguably the most famous shortform comedy show in the world. The ComedySportz 2/28 match features two teams of improvisational performers (players) competing in various improv games and performing scenes, with audience members judging the results and awarding points. In every match, a CSz referee monitors the action, awarding points and administering fouls as necessary. The flavor is somewhat like the television show Whose Line Is It Anyway?, though ComedySportz precedes that show’s debut by over 4 years. CSz is a high-energy hilarious experience, and appropriate for all audiences – all ages, all welcome.
