IRTE Unleashes Another Season of Uproarious On-the-Spot Humor
One of the leading Improv Troupes in NYC, the Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble, is unleashing another season of uproarious on-the-spot humor.
A busier season than ever before, the company, (Robert Baumgardner, Bill Berg, Curt Dixon and Jamie Maloney) led by artistic director, Nannette Deasy, begins a non-stop roller coaster ride that goes from January thru June.
2017 begins in North Carolina with the Happy Birthday, Stupid Kid!, at the Asheville Fringe Arts Festival: Jamie McCluskey is turning 12 and you're invited to celebrate THE BIG DAY! Jamie may be just a "stupid kid," but it's the adults who are out of control in this improvised and interactive birthday party.
