4/30/2012 8:07:00 AM Studio Live presents Zenprov Comedy Troupe at the Fisher Cinco De-Lightful
Zenprov Comedy will take the stage at Mary D. Fisher Theatre in Sedona on May 5.
Kick off Cinco De Mayo with Zenprov Comedy at the new Mary D. Fisher theater! The troupe promises a "fiesta of funny" with their one-night only "Cinco-De-Lightful" show this Saturday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
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."We're totally excited to be the first comedy group to perform at the new Mary D. Fisher theater," said Derek Dujardin, director of the troupe. "The new space adds a lot, including comfy seats, better acoustics and cheap alcohol! We think on-site bar will just make us that much funnier!"
The troupe says they are adding a lot of new games to this show, including a game called "Sound Effects" where audience members will create all the sound effects for their scene using off-stage microphones.
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.
Zenprov's last two shows sold out, so get your tickets early. Doors open at 7 p.m. Shows are rated PG-13 and run approximately 90 minutes. Visit www.ZenprovComedy.com to learn more.
