Description

Embracing the spirit of one of the most heralded artists in American theater, the actors and master improvisers of Impro Theatre will create full-length, completely improvised musicals in the style of Stephen Sondheim in Sondheim UnScripted.

Using just their guts, improvisational wits and audience suggestions, the cast invents a brand new, never-before-seen (and never will be seen again) musical for each performance.  The only constant is the thrill, joy and humor that are brought together to bring character, plot and songs to life — all to pay tribute to Sondheim by an expert team of funny and gifted actors whose explorations of great literary figures include Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams, Jane Austen and Dickens.

Directed by Dan O’Connor and Michele Spears, _Sondheim UnScripted _features Lisa Fredrickson, Brian Jones, Stephen Kearin, Brian Lohmann, Jo McGinley, Dan O’Connor, Edi Patterson, Paul Rogan, Michele Spears and Floyd Van Buskirk

Musical directors are James Lent, Ron Schneider and Peter Smith.  Nick Massouh, Jim Sabo and Reuben Vernier are lighting improvisers.
