With this very special family-friendly improv event, ImprovBoston brings together two nationally respected comedy troupes: New York City’s Story Pirates and ImprovBoston’s local favorite Family Show!
These Story Pirates can't sail and they won't make you walk the plank, but they will steal your kids' ideas and incorporate them on the spot into an interactive show that validates the imagination of every child in the audience. When The Family Show joins in the fun, they create a show before your eyes that's as crazy, hilarious and unexpected as kids themselves. For a never-before-seen finale, both casts will combine forces for a closing act so spectacular, you won’t believe it’s all being made up on the spot! With audience inspirations, IMPROV EXTRAVAGANZA will be the comedy-music-theater event of the season.
TICKETS: ONLY $15 ADVANCE, $20 AT THE DOOR
