It’s never too early to think about the new year, resolutions and short-term goals you’d like to see through, and (of course) fun. We have two shows coming up in the first half of January to get you in the spirit for having a great year.
On January 3rd, we have our first Bank Show of the year! At the Central New York Playhouse in Shoppingtown Mall, your favorite SIC stars will take the stage along with special guests performing stand-up comedy, music, and improvised art (which, as always, be available for purchase during the auction after the show). The show will go on at 8 PM, and the cost is still only $5.
On Thursday, January 9th, we’ll be bringing back our open mic and experimental night called Non SICuitur Thursdays. This night will allow performers of all ranges to fill a slot for the evening. If you want to perform, please book ahead of time so we can put your name on the bill. Invite your family and friends to watch you and others perform in a comfortable and judgement-free zone. Whether your talent is improv, comedy, music, art, or even spoken word you are very welcome to give something new a try or show us your fine-tuned skills. Tickets for this show are $3 at the door, and the doors open at 7:30 PM for this 8 PM show.
At the end of each night the floor will be opened up for everyone to participate in a jam. This will give everyone and anyone the opportunity to try out performing improv.
We do hold classes for those interested in improv, and we want you to join in on our fun. Yes, we do encourage you to take the classes, but we only want to encourage you to be your personal best. There is no pressure for you to perform in front of an audience.
The Thumbs UPstate Improv Festival will be returning Thursday April 3 to Saturday April 5, 2014. Keep your eyes peeled for more information at the website (currently being updated) and at the Facebook page!
