Improv: First Saturday happening this weekend

This weekend’s Improv: First Saturday event will be a local preview show for the Alaska State Improv Festival (AS IF), scheduled for April 18-20.

Saturday’s show will feature Morally Improv-erished, Not Safe for Improv, and Rorschach Pattern 9, who will present the formats they will perform at AS IF, the state’s first national improv festival.

Morally Improv-erished will be performing “An Improbable Act” – the improvised one-act play format that led them to being the first Alaskan improvisers to perform at an Outside festival. Not Safe for Improv will present a movie recreation, based on an audience suggestion. Rorschach Pattern 9 will present a mix of beat poetry, Dada, vaudeville, and improvised scenework.

Improv: First Saturday will happen on April 6 at 9:15 p.m. at The Gold Town Nickelodeon. Tickets are $10 and are available at Hearthside Books, the JACC,, and at the door.
