Spolin Players Perform at the Pierson May 15

If you need a good laugh, or many laughs and maybe even a few belly laughs, come watch the Spolin Players perform from 4 to 5:15 p.m. on Sunday, May 15, at Pierson Playhouse, 941 Temescal Canyon Rd.

The performance is a fundraiser for the Palisades Democratic Club with the $35 admission fee going to staff the 2016 election headquarters.

There will be a wine reception from 3 to 4 p.m. prior to the show.

The improvisational troupe, with Palisadian Gail Matthius, plays the theater games of Viola Spolin, “the High Priestess of Improv,” who created the techniques used by the cast of Chicago’s Second City in the early 1960s, as well as every other improvisational comedy troupe since.

The Players were among the last group to study with Spolin, who died in 1994 at the age of 88. Matthius is a former Saturday Night Live cast member.

The completely improvised show is based solely on audience suggestions. Every show is completely different and original. No sets, no props, no costumes, yet you “see and hear” all three. Audience members are asked to bring their imagination and suggestions.
