My professional improv troupe (who are mostly HUGE gaming fans) is considering running a couple of entertainment events this year and I wanted to gauge your interest. Here is some background on the event:
Improvised Role-Playing Mash Up Show (IRPMUS)
A 1-1.5 hour fast-paced, stage-based entertainment
show featuring theatrical improvisation, fun character interludes and lots of audience participation anchored by
a fantasy adventure undertaken by three D&D characters and a very interesting DM. These characters will have a quest which will be shaped by the audience. The characters themselves will be "endowed" by the audience (YOU will define them...timid hobbit fighter, confused dwarven MU, etc..) then acted out throughout the show. There will be cameos by the D&D Monster Man (Youtube), the Zombie News Crew (Gen Con 2011 zombie walk youtube videos).
Audience volunteers will offer sound effects, lines that the characters will blindly speak at times throughout the "adventure" and improvise encountered enemies (ever wanna act out a goblin?).
Again the show would be on a stage done by professional improvisers, so there'd be microphones, lights, etc. with you in the audience (sort of think a combination between the Killer Breakfast and Who's Line is it Anyways and you'll be in the ballpark).
Is this something you'd attend? If you would, what do you think is a reasonable ticket price for something like this? If there's a lot of interest we might even consider 2 seperate shows. Lemme hear from you!
