Fall of the Band (Serial Comedy) at Action/Adventure All Thru November!

Holy cow people look at all the comedy in town! It’s exciting, it’s thrilling, it’s new and cool and neat and adjectives all around. This is an especially neat thing that you should definitely check out: a live serial comedy developed right on the spot by some of your favorite folks at Action/Adventure Theatre!

FALL OF THE BAND features a new 60 minute episode every weekend, with four episodes in all, in the ongoing story of a Portland band coming to grips with the loss of its lead singer.  The plot points are drawn by Action/Adventure’s writers but the dialogue is completely improvised by the actors. So cool!!

Last week was episode one but you can still catch any or all of the rest of the episodes. Shows run Fridays at 8 and 10:30, Saturdays at 9, and Sundays at 8 through November 18. Tickets are $12 for the first episode you see and $10 for every show thereafter. Plus Fridays are pay-what-you-want. Can’t be beat, people! Enjoy the magic and awesomeness of live improvised comedy!
