SLCT's OWN IMPROVISATIONAL TROUPE
If you want The ImproVables to perform for your club or event during the year, please contact us by visiting our web page under the ImproVables tab above.
SLCT’s spring show will be Aspirin & Elephants by Jerry Mayer. Prior to becoming a playwright, Mayer wrote for TV including episodes for The Bob Newhart Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and MASH. The one-liners in this play are every bit as good as in any of his TV episodes, and the characters are both humorous and interesting.
Production dates are Tuesday, March 21 through Saturday, March 25. The Friday performance on March 24 will be a matinee at 2:00 pm. This is to allow those who don’t want to drive at night an opportunity to enjoy the Cruise from Copenhagen to St. Petersburg.
Aspirin & Elephants is the story of a family taking a cruise together. The mother and her two daughters decide to treat “Dad” to a cruise on the Royal Norway from Copenhagen to St. Petersburg and back in order to cheer him up. He’s been depressed ever since he had a heart attack several months ago. Of course, the father is paying for the whole thing and starts out with a chip on his shoulder. The relationship of each couple is taxed to the limit as the play progresses, but in the end, the food is wonderful, the drinks flow, and everyone has grown.
Performances are at 7:00 pm except for Friday which is a 2:00 pm matinee. Tickets are $16 and will be sold in-person on Wednesdays, March 1, 8, 15, 1-3pm in Saguaro Room lobby, and Thursdays, March 2, 9, and 16, 1-3pm in the Oakwood lobby. Online ticket sales will be available 24/7 on this website starting at 3pm on March 1..
