FREE Improv Student Showcase March 4 at 7pm

Pagosa’s new comedy group LicketySplit Improv presents their first adult student showcase on March 4 at Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts. LicketySplit Improv founders Karisa Bruin and Scott Morehead bring decades of comedy experience to the San Juan Mountains. Since early January, a group of Pagosa locals have been learning the fundamentals of improvisation and will share what they have learned in a free showcase that is open to the public. Attendees can expect to watch fun, high energy games and scenes based on suggestions from the audience. With an emphasis on listening and saying “yes, and…” LicketySplit’s goal is to make improvising and comedy accessible to anyone who wants to give it a shot.

Join us for an evening of laughter at our free show on Monday, March 4 at 7:00pm. Admission is FREE and the bar will be open and feature drink specials. Recommended for ages 15+.
