A full-length horror film — improvised
October 16, 2009 · 1:58 PM
Poulsbo-based improv troupe, The Portable Reality Show, debuts its new season this weekend with two new members and a fully improvised, full-length horror film.
Audience suggestions will set the course of the eerily entitled, “The Eyes of Joanne” at 8 p.m. Oct. 16-17 at the Jewel Box Theatre, 225 Iverson St. in Poulsbo.
It’s somewhat of a new spin on spontaneous theater — kicking off a newly formatted season for the Portable Reality Show.
“It’s a whole new deal,” said the man with the purple Gretsch, PRS guitarist and accompanist, Rupert Kettle.
Where they had been performing about once every six weeks, Kettle explained, this season they’ll be giving four weekend performances on the year — Friday and Saturday shows — each with a different theme.
“As of right now,” Kettle said, “we’ve got the horror movie for Halloween, then we’re going to do a Christmas musical again, and ... well, the rest of it is, kind of up in the air.”
As you’d expect from a top-quality ad lib performance group.
Tickets are $8 adv/$10 at the door. Info: www.jewelboxpoulsbo.org.
