Teenage FBI is New Jersey’s ONLY all teen improv troupe. Which may or may not be true. But probably is. The fact is these young humans ROCK! They’ll prove it to you by performing some musical improv tonight. Yup, you heard that right. They’ll make stuff up that goes beyond just thinking up lines and will be creating lyrics and freakin’ music on the spot! Full disclosure… their autographs are really the only things they’ve rehearsed.
Mission Control consists of a mix of some of New Jersey’s hottest improvisers from improv institutions such as IO Chicago, The Peoples Improv Theater, Second City, and Gotham City Improv. This is a rare opportunity to see veteran improvisers create on-the-spot theater in your own backyard! Cast consists of Rocket Improv instructors Lulu French (Gotham City Improv), Abby Sher (Second City), Dave Maulbeck (the Magnet), Angela Dohrmann (the PIT), and Brad Barton (Gotham City Improv) with guests Bob Kulhan (IO Chicago) and Kimberley Hellem (IO Chicago). This show may not be family friendly. It depends on your family.
What do you get when you combine a therapist, a corrections officer, a scientist, a graphic designer, and a commercial specialist? Sounds like a Mighty Hoax to me! This troupe might be new, but they are not afraid to get weird and conjure up a few laughs along the way. When you combine Mehdi Doumi, Jonny Fido, Justin Kemps, Tim Lowe, and Eric Shepperd you are guaranteed to see something truly unique. You are guaranteed a Mighty Hoax!
Tickets available at!

Behind the Scenes: Poster Photoshoot

[aesop_gallery id=”2602″ revealfx=”inplace” overlay_revealfx=”off”]
Greetings, Earthlings! The poster for our next panto is almost ready to hit the streets of the New Jersey suburbs, but until then, here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes at some of the shenanigans during our photoshoot!
We got all (bar one) of the actors together, had a chance to dress them up in as much costume as we have, tested a bunch of make-up ideas and then let them loose in front of the camera! Best rehearsal ever!
We really do have too much fun at these things!

Jetpack Jones and the Prison Planet of Peril official poster is here!

Pretty soon you’ll be seeing these all around town, it’s the official poster for our next brand new British Pantomime Jetpack Jones and the Prison Planet of Peril – a wacky space comedy with laughs that are out of this world!
Sometime in the distant future, somewhere in outer space…
For years evil Emperor Zoltan has been sending his citizens to the Prison Planet of Peril to mine for precious Diluka Ore for his secret project. Leader of the prisoners, Rajeena and her daughter Hera, dream of escape, but have resigned themselves to a life of boredom in their mining tool workshop. Hera’s ex-boyfriend, Doctor Wayne, is boring, and Rajeena’s brother, Dameon, has been acting like a robot ever since his last interrogation at Zoltan’s palace.
Enter notorious smugglers Jetpack Jones and his Vegan co-pilot Mitch Meridian, who are headed to planet Burgdorffia to compete in Dancing Literally With The Stars (with a prize of half a million StarBucks) when their FART drive breaks down. Soon they are captured by the evil Emperor Zoltan and sent to Planet Peril, and the humdrum lives of the prisoners is about to be turned upside down!
What is Zoltan’s secret plan for the Diluka Ore? Will Jetpack ever learn to jump? Who is more trustworthy – Dameon or Zoltan’s alluring daughter, Velyana? Will they escape in time to make the dance competition? What will become of 3 stowaways now stuck in Zoltan’s palace? All these questions and more will be answered in…
