The Mop & Bucket Co., the area’s oldest improvisational theatre troupe, will stage its season premier at Steamer 10, 500 Western Avenue Albany, on Sept 29 and 30 at 8 PM. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for all others.
Originally founded in 1995, the company has been the chief innovator in the Capital District improve scene, offering an ever-evolving blend of short-form sketches, musical improvisations, audience participation, and innovative long-form pieces.
MopCo offers a new format this season: elements of Saturday’s performances will be based on suggestions gathered from Friday’s audiences. Audience members who attend both shows will receive a discounted ticket price, and have the opportunity to see a more intricately structured performance piece, crafted from their ideas.
In addition to regular performances at Steamer 10, the company performs at various other venues. The company also offers corporate, murder mystery, and specially tailored training events to organizations. The web site is www.mopco.org.
For reservations call the Steamer 10 Box Office 438-5503.
