Comedy Improv Thursday Show with the Recess Players


Date: Event occurs every Thursday of every month.
Time: 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Category: Arts / Exhibits

Location: The Uptown Arts Bar
Price: Free
Thursday nights are the new Friday night! And what better way to get set for the weekend than going watching an improv show. Every Thursday night the Recess Players presents a highly entertaining long form comedy improv show. What's long form improv you ask? The performers ask for one suggestion and present a series of scenes that incorporate that suggestion. It's like a play made up on the spot with lots of laughs. If that doesn't bring you in, then maybe the incredible food and drinks will. The Uptown Arts bar offers a great selection of beverages to patrons 21 and over.

The Recess Players also coach and teach a weekly workshop. For more info about them, improv, or the cosmos - email Zak Roland at zakrecessplayers13@gmail.com
