Creatures of Impulse, the City of Pleasanton's teen improv troupe, will perform a fourth season of their popular holiday-themed improv show, 'Holiday Shorts: A Long Winter's Tale', in two performances this month at the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton. There is also a free preview show on Tuesday, November 27 at 7:30 p.m. Parking is free for all three performances.
Local troupe Creatures of Impulse will perform 'short-form' improvisational games and scenes in the first act of each show of 'Holiday Shorts'. During intermission the audience will vote on which one of those scenes or games is performed as an improvised holiday "play" in the second act.
"I can't wait for this show. There is such great energy created among the performers and audience members with 'Holiday Shorts' each year. At intermission, it is so fun to watch both the audience and the performers wait with this collective nervous energy to hear which game or scene is voted into an improvised play. I really think this is the new holiday tradition at the Firehouse Arts Center," says Creatures of Impulse Director Mark Duncanson.
The 26-member troupe recently performed their popular improvised teen horror show, 'Nightmare', at the Firehouse Arts Center and will soon begin puppet-making workshops this month for the spring tour of their brand new show 'Puppets of Impulse', an improvised teen puppet musical scheduled to close the big Chicago Teen Comedy Festival in Chicago, Illinois in May 2013.
