Nightmares 2019: Creatures of Impulse Teen Improv | Oct. 24-26

The Bay Area’s award-winning teen improv troupe Creatures of Impulse kicks off its 10th season with Nightmares. The troupe promises new twists on the ever-popular Halloween-inspired fall classic. Audience suggestions drive the characters and stories for this un-scripted theatrical scare-fest.

“Come and see your very own ‘dark and stormy night’ come to life!” says COI coach and director Mark Duncanson, Recreation Supervisor with the City of Pleasanton. “Every show is different, and we get lots of fans who come to two or more performances.”

The COI team rehearses storytelling techniques, and studies how to create characters that the audience can identify with, and will hopefully care about as well. Audience input inspires the creation of characters and storylines. From this, the cast then develops a fully improvised “play” each night.

Four shows:

  • Thursday, October 24, 7:30 p.m.
  • Friday, October 25, 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, October 26, 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Special cash-only preview show: Tuesday, October 22, 7:30 p.m. (tickets $2 at the door).
