Ever wondered about the history of bolo ties? Or about just how the dictaphone was invented? Or what the historical impact of yo-yos has been? We don’t know either but that won’t stop us from telling you about it! You choose the object and create a full scale documentary on the spot for your entertainment!

Rumor has it that Improv Conspiracy consists of John Araya, Alex Choi, Thad Hitchcock, Elizabeth Oder, Kara Pomeroy, and Parker Thompson.

In Suspense

Pay-What-You-Can-Preview on Thursday, November 12, 2015

Opens on Friday, November 13, 2015 and runs Thu-Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm through November 28 (no performance on Thanksgiving Day).

Written by Leonard D. Goodisman.

Five lives are put at stake when Marie, a high school sophomore, gets suspended from school for an alleged computer attack and begins to believe she may truly not belong. Her parents, sensing this is their fight as well, jump up to take action against the school principal, who believes she has done the best she can in carrying out the suspension. However, tensions rise when Marie’s father meets a lawyer who proudly tells him of the biggest accomplishment of his career – the very law that made Marie’s suspension so easy – and everyone begins to face the reality that their “best” may have led them down a darker path than intended.

Directed by Megan Brewer

MCQUEEN3Mcqueen: Fever Dream

“This show is mad funny! Dudes doing something crazy original, it’s going to be huge man!”

DAVE CHAPPELLE

“An original show that showcases immense talent and wow factor!” HUFFINGTON POST

“It was like watching Jimmy Fallon and Reggie Watt’s love child bringing down the house!”

BUZZFEED

“Nothing I have ever seen compares to the originality and hilarity that went down last night! So much going on with one constant! FUNNY!!!!” CNN NEWS

“It’s just brilliant!” THOMYORKE, RADIOHEAD

Whilst touring with Radiohead one fateful night in Miami, McQueen Adams impressed the band with an impersonation so fresh an idea was born. Adams has created a fusion of music, comedy and video, which parodies pop stars, movies and a variety of celebrities. It’s a jamboree of songs, stunts and sketches, and the material’s range stretches from subjects as varied as the sounds of Daft Punk to the magic of the wizard Gandalf, with some Jason Statham, Orlando Bloom and Coldplay along the way.

Transmitting a hi-tech audio-visual experience, McQueen creates an incredibly unique new universe. It collides with planet Earth for the first time this spring so prepare for a blast!
