Give dad the gift of laughter this Father's Day weekend with a 90-minute trip through the comic terrain of Zenprov Comedy.

The troupe performs on Saturday, June 16 at 7:30 p.m. at Studio Live in Sedona. Tickets are $10 advance purchase, or $15 the day of the show. Bring the whole family to this PG-13 event.

"Fatherhood is ripe for comedy," said Derek Dujardin the troupe's director. "We're going to get the daddies in our audience on stage as much as we can. We'll use their suggestions and crazy things fathers say as material to start our scenes, made up on the spot."

Like the TV show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" Zenprov performs fast-paced, improvised comedic scenes created in the moment-always based on audience suggestions. Unlike sketch or standup comedy, nothing is scripted or rehearsed.The Zenprov players embrace the Del Close method of improv acting, which emphasizes the "group mind" that mysteriously develops during a performance. Miraculously, the player's minds fuse together to create a "super mind" where they practically finish each other's sentences-and often do. Laughter ensues.

The Zenprov cast includes improv veterans Tony Carito, Derek Dujardin and Shaeri Richards (formerly from Abandoned Minds), and rising stars Mike Burdick, Bonnie Green, Betty Testa, Linda Roemer, Laura Lizak, Mary Carder, and Breanna Helfert.

For more information please contact the Sedona Performing Arts Alliance/Studio Live at (928)282-0549. Tickets are available online at or at the Studio Live box office located at 215 Coffeepot Drive in West Sedona.

The Sedona Performing Arts Alliance is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to advancing the Performing Arts thru Education, Live Performance and Artist Support. Studio Live is a tool for the SPAA to reach audiences and showcase their craft.
