Harlequin Productions is gearing up to present The 2nd Annual South Sound Improv Comedy Festival April 3rd and 4th at 8:00 PM at the State Theater in downtown Olympia. This festival will feature some of the most acclaimed improv troupes from the Olympia area and the Puget Sound region.
Troupes set to perform include Unexpected Productions, Jet City Improv, Fools Play, Olyimprov, Generation Friends, Hat Trick Pony, and Harlequin’s own improv troupe, Something Wicked. Local favorite standup comedian Morgan Picton will serve as Master of Ceremonies. The two days will feature two different lineups. Harlequin is offering single-day tickets for $20 and two-day passes for $30. Patrons can purchase tickets and get info about when each of the troupes will perform at harlequinproductions.org.
“This festival aims to celebrate extraordinary improv in our area,” said festival organizer and Harlequin Development Manager Mark Alford. “I think a lot of people don’t realize how fantastic our local improv scene is.”
Last year, the 1st annual festival sold out completely which forced the theater to turn patrons away at the door, spurring Harlequin’s decision to make this year’s festival a two-night affair.
