The Rogue Theatre has carved a niche for itself in the Tucson arts community by presenting works created by classic authors and acknowledged masters. 
Now, we're doing it for ourselves in
An Evening of Long-Form Improvisation
Saturday, April 10
7:30 P.M.

The Rogue Theatre
300 E. University Blvd.
Admission is "Pay-What-You-Will"
Guided by director Brad Kula of The Charles Darwin Experience, we have assembled a cast of six creative, spontaneous and awfully clever actors to create an evening of both short-form theatre games and long-form improvisation. Working together, the company will create a one-act play from a simple suggestion of a setting, weaving together multiple story lines and interacting with each other in unexpected and surprising ways.  The evening promises to be a combustion of comedy, drama, intrigue and ... well ... we don't know what else
(it's improvisation, after all)!

Free Off-Street Parking

Parking and Box Office open at 6:30 P.M.
