Reviving The Gods with IM

Improvised Mythology 
at First United Methodist Church

First off, this is not the Ancient Greek mythology your grandfather studied in school. Yes, some of the names will sound familiar and the situations are at times reminiscent of a greek tragedy although there is nothing cathartic going on here. The intention is to make you laugh and this long-form show stays committed to telling its tale based on a simple suggestion from the audience: how a shark grows its teeth back. Of course, every performance is different, because each audience will suggest something unique. But what remains is this ensemble bringing you everything you would expect from a made-up Greek Mythology story: lust, greed, revenge, cannibalism, and the occasional Michael Phelps reference. It's all in good fun as this charming cast creates the story from scratch. Next shows: Sat. at 7:30pm and 10:30pm.
