IMP Anniversary

IMP turns ten and it’s hard to believe. It’s sort of like that little sister, the one who just yesterday could always be seen wearing her underwear on her head, is now all dressed up in a corsage and headed to the prom.

Good thing about IMP, though, is that even though the program is now firmly established as an Island institution, it never really grows up. For an improv group, wearing underwear on your head never goes out of style.

Next Friday, April 13, the group throws an anniversary show taking place at 8 p.m. at the Katharine Cornell Theatre in Vineyard Haven. The improv performers include the high school performers and will be joined by IMP alumni Ed Cisek, Devin Colter, and Ashley Peters. This two-act show features short form improv based on audience suggestions and their new long form A Trip to the Mall.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $18 at the door.

For those who want to get in on the fun, IMP camp days are on April 7 and May 5 from noon to five p.m. at the Edgartown School. Kids ages 6 to 16 can come and be part of the IMP fun. The fee is $30.
