Concordia students Aaron Huesmann and Allison Story perform during the IMPROVables’ annual 24-hour IMPROVathon last February.

The Concordia IMPROVables, a student improvisational theater group, will perform its annual Homecoming show, bringing a night of laughs to campus starting Friday, Sept. 27, at 10 p.m., and ending at 1 a.m. Saturday in the Janzow Campus Center.

While there is an initial show cast, the performances will be a "free-for-all," meaning anyone in attendance is free to participate in the games and activities.

“Our improv troupe is always looking for new members who either love to perform or are looking to simply improve communication skills,” said Avery Kesar, one of the four students who organize the IMPROVables. “We consist of many different people, some who participate in theater, some who don't.”

Following the Homecoming performances, the IMPROVables’ fall schedule includes:

  • Friday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m., Studio Theatre in the Music Center on Concordia’s campus
  • Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 7 p.m., Seward Bandshell
  • Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m., Olde Glory Theatre in Seward
  • Monday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m., Studio Theatre
  • Saturday, Dec. 14, at 7:30 p.m., Studio Theatre
