It's been a year and a half since I joined The Utility Players, Reno's premier improv troupe, as their musician. While I also get up occasionally for some of the one-liner games, I traditionally sit behind my keys and try to figure out ways to incorporate the Doogie Howser theme song into a scene. It is a natural combination that the improv troupe should ramp up its performance schedule for the wonder that is Artown, a monthlong celebration of fine arts, performing arts, and other creative miscellany.
The dates for the Utility Players shows, which are also on their website, are as such:
Thursday July 10th at 7:30pm – Pioneer Underground – "adult show", rated R
Friday, July 18th at 9:30pm – Pioneer Underground – adult show
Saturday July 19th at 1pm – Good Luck Macbeth theater – “kids show”, rated PG
Saturday July 19th at 3pm – Good Luck Macbeth theater – kids show
Saturday July 26th at 1pm – Good Luck Macbeth theater – kids show
Saturday July 26th at 3pm – Good Luck Macbeth theater – kids show
Sunday July 27th at 2pm – Pioneer Underground – adult show
