SUMMIT, NJ - Making it up as they go along, the resident troupe of Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre will present their annual evening of improv comedy entitled "Multiple Personality Disorder" May 13, beginning at 8 p.m., at The Oakes Center.
The unpredictable performance offers laughs from start to finish and features a cast of Dreamcatcher improv regulars, including Clark Carmichael, Laura Ekstrand, Noreen Farley and Lulu French, and just may include a special guest or two from the New York improv scene via the Upright Citizens Brigade and Gotham City Improv.
French, who lives in Maplewood, also teaches Improv classes at The Theater Project and the South Orange - Maplewood Adult School.
The show includes improvisational comedy sketches that use audience suggestions to shape the scenes that the actors instantly create onstage. Performers use ingredients such as everyday objects, strange maladies, and unusual circumstances to cook up unconventional mini-plays that appear and disappear in a matter of minutes. Every show is unique, with -- fittingly -- multiple surprises throughout the evening.
"This is one of my favorite short-form improv shows to do," said French. "I have a blast, the audience has a blast, EVERYBODY has a blast!"
