PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University Theatre’s improvisational comedy group, Nuthouse, is opening it fifth and sixth weekends of shows Friday and Saturday, Oct. 4 and 5, and next Friday and Saturday, Oct. 11 and 12. All shows are in Kimbrough Hall, Room 101, a new venue for Nuthouse Improv Comedy.
Oct. 11 and 12 is Theatre Sports weekend. In this show, two teams will battle head-to-head in a battle of completely made-up-on-the-spot comedy. Judges will score the players each game, and the team with the most points at the end wins.
Nuthouse has sold-out all of its eight shows in Daggy Hall this semester. Many people have had to be turned away at the door due to high ticket sales.
Nuthouse is live, interactive, off-the-cuff humor that is different every show because almost everything is based on the audience suggestions. It is in its fifth year with WSU Theatre’s undergraduate group, STAGE.
STAGE recently participated in Relay for Life, an 18-hour walk for cancer research. It was recognized as the top money-raising student organization bringing almost $2,500 to support the American Cancer Society.
The shows are not for children due to occasional mature subject matter. Nuthouse tickets are $2 for everyone. Tickets for all shows can be purchased at the ticket table in front of Kimbrough Hall’s, Room 101, beginning at 7 p.m. on the night of each show. Organizers recommend getting to the show early, as tickets go quickly.
