 Classic comedy re-imagined! Unexpected Productions will bring back a classic improv. This fun, interactive show pushes the boundaries of physical humor. Mouth Wide Shut is a captivating improv experience in which performers create spontaneous scenes, stories, and characters entirely through physical expression and gesture without using words. It's a unique form of improv where communication happens through body language, facial expressions, and movement alone.

"Our skilled improvisers use their bodies as the primary medium for storytelling, conveying emotions, and interacting with each other and the audience. Every scene unfolds in real time, propelled by the performers' quick thinking and creativity," explained Jay Hitt, the show's creator and director.The absence of spoken language adds an extra layer of challenge and intrigue and invites the audience, to interpret and engage with the performance more viscerally and imaginatively, making it a truly interactive experience.

"The possibilities are boundless. "From slapstick comedy to poignant drama, our improvisers utilize their physicality to explore many themes and genres, creating moments of uproarious laughter, unexpected surprise, and profound connection, all without uttering a single word.," said Hitt. The show is a celebration of the universal language of movement and expression, inviting you to experience a full spectrum of emotions, from laughter to awe, through the power of silent storytelling.
