What does all this mean?

For the past few days we have been focusing on Trish Berrong. If you are involved in improv in Kansas City, and you don't know her, then get to know She can coach, direct, play, inspire, and pass on huge nuggets of improv wisdom.

But, what does all this mean?

There is an all-new improv show on the historic square in Liberty…featuring Fakers (aka Improv Thunderdome finalists Scriptease) and Piddle, KC’s newest improv troupe.

The members of Fakers got their start in the highly touted Liberty High School troupe, Exit 16. Since graduating, they've become some of the most promising young improvisers in the Kansas City area.

Fakers made it to the KC Improv Thunderdome Finals with their signature piece, The Disaster Epic. A seemingly mundane news story turns into an instrument of the apocalypse in an abridged disaster film styling. Fakers guarantees this fast-paced, audience-friendly piece will keep viewers on the edges of their seats—praying for salvation from whatever the crowd sees fit to throw into the mix.

Fakers is Rene Boudreaux, Drew Davidson, Clay Ingram and Tommy Todd.

And don’t miss the debut of Piddle. Ex-Exit 16ers Eric Kirk, Katie Liseo and Drew Davidson (again) take improv back to basics. It’s all about the funny.

Saturday, May 3rd
Corbin Theater

Remember, none of this could be possible without Trish Berrong. Congratulations to Liberty High School for corralling her talent.
