Update May 11: Following are some updates straight from Theatre 99 rep Brandy Sullivan:
The Have Nots! Comedy Improv Company will be doing six shows during Piccolo Fringe, but we are selling our tickets for $12.50 each through www.theatre99.com to avoid raising our price to $16. It will be The Have Nots! 17th year.
We are also selling two Neckprov performances for just $8 through our website.
Below are the show descriptions, dates and times.
The Have Nots! Comedy Improv CompanyNo scripts! All improv! This high energy show is entirely based on your audience suggestion so every show is different. Two lucky audience members will actually become part of the show. This year The Have Nots! will perform their unique brand improv comedy AND will invite special guests to perform. You never know who will join them on the stage! Come find out why critics say “The Have Nots! have it!”May 28, 29, June 3 at 7:00 p.m., June 4 and 10 at 8:30 p.m., June 11 at 9:30 p.m.
Neckprov Come join Skeeter, Wild Man, Jackson, Carlene, R.L., Ray Ray and Chevron for an evening for rednecks and those who are curious about rednecks. This long form will weave a tapestry of stereotypical redneck situations and not so stereotypical situations into a gut busting show that will have you waving the stars and stripes and yelling “Free Bird.” What if rednecks were at the signing of the Declaration of Independence? What if they were the brains behind such great inventions as the telescope, duck pate or the atom bomb? Come find out! Someone is gonna burn down their trailer house trying to deep fry some road kill. It’s all improv based on your suggestions. Rednecks don’t write scripts.May 28 at 10:30 p.m., May 30 at 7:00 p.m.
As always, head over to Theater 99's website for more info.
