The Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art is proud host Improv Comedy Night at the brand-new DeSoto Amphitheater for the Performing Arts on Friday, September 5, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Hosted by TMI Improv, Gamut Theatre Group’s long-form improv troupe, this will be an unpredictable night of comedy! Those who attended the Grand Opening Celebration of the DeSoto Amphitheater on July 25 may remember TMI’s side-splitting set.

The evening will also feature a set by York-based short-form troupe The Oxymorons and a bonus opener by the ladies of No Artificial Sweeteners, an all-female improv troupe based in Harrisburg.

Using suggestions from the audience, improvisers work together to create scenes right on the spot – every improv show is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Tickets to this performance are $8, and can be purchased in advance at 717-692-3699 or nedsmithcenter.org. Ned Smith Center members can use coupons for 50% off admission. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket for seating. Picnics are welcome, BYOB.
