Synopsis: Join the CinEvil Society as they search for the world's most evil film! Be the test audience as your villainous host screens a select horror movie to see if it can terrify you into submission. Unfortunately, the aging VHS tapes used to copy these fiendish films from late night tv in the 80’s have degraded over the years, and the missing scenes must be re-created by a cast of damned improvisers freshly summoned from the netherworld. Even though they’ve never seen the original movie. What creature will feature next? The hungry C.H.U.D.? The groovy Ghoulies? Or the big balls of Phantasm? Dare to buy a ticket to this late night fright and find out!
We are looking for experienced comedic improvisers for a new improvised comedy show, Creature Feature. The show will take the form of a late night horror show, with improvisers acting out a horror movie using actual movie clips as inspiration. Looking for improvisers of all types with a focus on story building, character development, and a knowledge of horror movie tropes.

Puffs is a tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs ... who just happened to be there too. This clever and inventive play gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers. Their hilariously heartfelt and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a wizard hero can be.
