The holidays are over and the students of the College of the Desert (C)D) Theatre Arts Department are kicking off 2014 with another performance of the hit comedy series “The Improv Games”.  The show will feature a raucous evening of original material and improvisational comedy.  Improv Games 3.jpg

“The audience will literally dictate everything the performers do on stage,” says Director & COD Assistant Professor of Theatre, Tres Dean. “Improvisation is the foundation of so many aspects of acting and performing. Improv calls upon the performer to think on their feet, immediately bring a character to life, and fully commit to that character. When you add the unpredictable suggestions and guidance of the audience, you have the recipe for an extremely entertaining experience.”

Improvisational Theatre is the backbone of iconic television mainstays such as Saturday Night Live and “Who’s Line Is It Anyway?”. It has also given birth to live venues and training facilities such as The Second City, The Groundlings, and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

Moody, Miranda Hane, Carson Graf, Ronda Williams, Mason McIntosh, Michael Adkins, and Gabriella St. Claire.
