FACE-OFF 2018: Creatures of Impulse Teen Improv Troupe
Creatures of Impulse, the Bay Area's popular and much-lauded teen improv troupe, presents Face-Off 2018. Local Bay Area improv teams "compete" against City of Pleasanton's own award-winning Creatures of Impulse.
COI takes the stage in five unique shows full of scenes, games, and improv high-jinks. Director and founder Mark Duncanson notes that this year COI has decided on a "pro-wrestling theme:" five performances, five different bouts, all with an interactive format that gives the audience a chance to win prizes.
Each show will feature a different guest 'opponent' troupe, with participating teams from around the Bay Area. All shows are at COI's home stage, the Firehouse Arts Center Theater in Pleasanton.
FACE-OFF WEEK 2018 schedule: Thursday, February 22, 7:30 p.m.; Friday, February 23, 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, February 24 (two shows), 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Special Preview show (cash only at door $2): Wednesday, February 21, 7:30 p.m.
