PR Productions’ Improv Comedy Night returns

Published: Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

PR Productions, a local theater company that performs in various areas in the Fox Valley, will hit the River’s Edge Theatre stage with another “Improv Comedy Night” at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets for the performance cost $12 and can be purchased online at www.riversedgetheatre.com or at the door prior to the performance. 

PR Productions’ Improv Comedy Night is a fast-paced, funny, audience-interactive, all-ages appropriate short-form improv show. 

Each show is made up of roughly 90 minutes of completely improvised scenes, games and musical numbers – all based on suggestions provided by the audience. Their quick-witted performers work together to create a live comedy experience that is unique every time. 

Each performance includes five to seven onstage actors, an improvisational musician, and a lights technician in the light booth, all creating the theatrical experience. 

The group plays classic improv games that became famous on the television show “Who’s Line Is It Anyway?” as well as games invented on the spot, with the help of the audience, to be played one time only. 

PR Productions ensures that every performance is family friendly.

“You don’t have to be vulgar or swear on stage to be funny,” Danielle Pagoria, director of the improv team, said in a news release. “Not all groups understand that. We want kids to have a good time, too!”

Saturday’s Improv Comedy Night will feature Nick Kinner of DeKalb, Brittany Watne of Waterman, Chris Roe of Plano, Blythe Schwaller of Sheridan and Kris Pagoria of Sandwich. The performance also features completely improvised musical accompaniment by Susan Webb of Yorkville and improvised lighting design by Tony Sabos of Bolingbrook. 

The River’s Edge Theatre features a cash bar in the lobby, with soda, beer, wine, water and other mixed drinks during each improv show.
