Back from a great weekend at the Dallas Comedy House, we are gearing up for a big week next week. Here is some info on all the great goings-on.
1.) Our New Spot
For those of you long-time STM fans, you know that our weekly improv show has had many homes over the years: the Avenue Pub, the Factory, that burnt-out dining car down at the train yard, the underwater lego fortress, etc. Next Tuesday, our weekly show moves on up to the Den at The Howlin’ Wolf.
With the mainstage of Howlin’ Wolf hosting some of the biggest music acts in the city, the Den is a more intimate venue inside the club, complete with a full bar, food, and now your favorite improv group. So join us and lets get back to proving that Tuesday’s don’t have to be the second shittiest day of the week.
Tuesday 5/24 (8:30pm)
The Den at The Howlin’ Wolf
907 South Peters street| in the Warehouse District.
Doors open at 8:00pm (Tickets: $5)
2.) Megaphone Night and Classes in May
We are now registering spring and summer improv classes with The New Movement. We are currently enrolling our next class set to begin in June, and for those of you who can’t wait until then, we may have a few spaces in a class set to begin on Saturday May 21st. If you are interested in either of those, you can reserve your space in the class by contacting Tami Nelson: Tami@newmovementtheater.com or (504) 302 8264
Interest in trying improv? Well come on out and get a taste at:
Thursday, May 26th (7-10pm)
Shadowbox Theater (2400 St. Claude Ave)
Held once a month, Megaphone Night is a 3-hour improv extravaganza featuring
Improv Zero: a free improv class
The Shootaround: a free jam where anyone can play
The Megaphone Show: Our trademark show presented by an all star cast of TNM improvisers and a special guest storyteller.
This month our special guest storyteller is The Local Skank. This all-girl (one guy) ska/pop/punk band has been burning it up in New Orleans and is just about to release a new calendar and feature-packed DVD before hitting the road on a tour of the east coast. You will fall in love with them in a way that will linger with you long after you’ve moved on and started a happy new relationship.
Then join us for drinks, delicious Vietnamese food, and hushed suggestive conversation at the after party at the Lost Love Lounge.
3.) Shawn Dugas is a genius
Props to our good friend and TNM NOLA student Shawn Dugas who just WON on last night’s episode of Wheel of Fortune. Shawn is a genius and master of luck who has made us all feel like winners by association. He will be at Megaphone Night dancing as he did on the final minutes of the broadcast. It is the type of dancing that will make you want to rip off your shirt and have him right there. Ladies, this is what he looks like. And this is what he looks like through the keyhole of a department store dressing room.
