The Windy City beckons
WIMP returning to the stage is big news, but the reason for the reunion is the really big news. WIMP is performing with IMP on Friday night to help raise money for IMP's trip to the Chicago Improv Festival (CIF). IMPers are the only teen troupe asked to perform at the festival later this spring.
On March 10, Annie Finnerty and other IMPers donated their talent to raise money for Habitat and Hospice of Martha's Vineyard.
Chicago will be their kind of town when IMPers work with CIF's artistic director Mark Sutton, see all the festival shows by veteran artists, attend workshops, perform as an apprentice team, and receive intensive training in this performance art.
IMP and WIMP performance, Friday, March 23, 8 pm, Katharine Cornell Theatre, Spring Street, Vineyard Haven. Tickets: $10 at the door; $5 in advance at Island Entertainment, State Road, Vineyard Haven. For more information call 508-939-9368 or visit www.troubledshores.com.
