The laughing is automatic!
Monterey iMPRoV will be helping local Monterey peninsula high school students competing in Poetry Out Loud (POL), a nation-wide poetry reading competition which starts at local high schools on up to the national championship.
We’ll be working with young people with poem selection, strengthening delivery and stage presence skills. Check out the local chapter on facebook. We like likes!
Monterey Improv will be working with My Museum, Monterey County Youth Museum staff and parents in areas of team-building and improv games. How about this for an inspiring motto, “My Museum where children play to learn and parents learn to play.”

As always, it’s been a funny summer of improv and we’re keeping it going. Hope to see you at a show.
Let improv happen.
Saturday night was Gerry’s final show as Mirth’O’Matics’ director … manager … water boy … counselor … secretary … general trouble-maker which leads to owner.
At the bewitching hour of 12:00:01am, Sunday Aug.3rd, the reigns for the Mirth-O-Matics were turned over to Dr. Richard Westbrook who will do a fantastic job leading this fun band of zany Mirthers. Their first show will be on Saturday August 16 at the Treasures Roadhouse Theater in Corralitos. Change is good and we’re expecting some new twists!
For Gerry and Monterey Improv, it’s time to pursue other improv adventures. You’ll see Gerry around town performing, as well as leading improv and acting workshops and classes. Stay tuned for upcoming events!
The Mirther’s lightened things up last Saturday night as they dove into the world of fish and turned audience suggestions into ‘reely’ funny scenes. The Green Chalk Contemporary invites the public to tour the Fresh Fish exhibit which explores the current social, economic and ecological status of fish and our oceans.
“Reverse!” The actors immediately reverse their lines and actions until the emcee shouts “Forward!”
In another game, the emcee prompts the actors to “Sing it!” and the scene continues in song.
Scenes follow a path filled with surprises making performances a fun and funny evening of improvisation theater.
Watch the Mirthers Saturday July 13 at The Works, Pacific Grove’s cozy combination coffee shop, bookstore and art gallery is located at 667 Lighthouse Ave.
Straight from their appearance in the Santa Cruz Improv Fest, the Mirth’O’Matics will continue making stuff up at the Golden State Theatre in Monterey
