Improv comedy inspired by local music.

Every month, a different local musician performs their original music. Having listened closely, the comedians from local improv group The Local Music Scene then improvise comedic scenes based on the lyrics.

Musical guest:
Jocelyn Walsh is a singer/songwriter who has performed throughout Rochester, St. Cloud, and Twin Cities, and who recently returned to the Twin Cities after a few-year stint in Seattle, WA. Her songs range from story folk to bluesy musings on anxiety and mental illness to drunken ramblings turned satirical melodramas about loves lost. While Jocelyn’s presence in the Minneapolis music scene has been somewhat muted by her questionable decision to write a dissertation while working full-time in the schools, she is slowly making her way back into her favorite music scene in her favorite metro area.

The Local Music Scene is: Sarah ArnoldLaura BergerBreanna CecileLiz CouncilJeff GyllenNathan KellyKelsey McGregorErik OstromShea RobertsWill Roberts, and Philip Simondet.

They are an improv group that has trained and performed at various local improv theaters, including The Brave New Workshop, ComedySportz Twin Cities, HUGE Theater and Jesters.

Based on "The Loudest Voice" by Grace Paley
Directed by Elena Gianetti

This area premiere has been described as an “incredible enchantment” by the L.A. Times, Coney Island Christmas introduces us to Shirley Abramowitz, a young Jewish girl who, much to her immigrant parents’ exasperation, is cast as Jesus in the school’s Christmas pageant. As Shirley, now much older, recounts the memorable story to her great-granddaughter, the play captures a timeless and universal tale of what it means to be an American during the holiday season.

Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies weaves together nostalgia, music, and merriment in this new seasonal classic for people of all ages and all faiths.

Mirroring the grotesque creature of Mary Shelley’s iconic novel, scenes of gothic horror are cobbled together with Green T’s signature physical style.  An eerie parade of misshapen beings, a visual nod to the 1931 Karloff film, oversized puppets, and at the center, the heartbreaking, female-centered story of an ambitious medical student who brings a creature to life then shuns it.  Locked out of society, deprived of human contact, understanding and compassion, the creature tragically lashes out.
