During improvisational comedy skits are created on-the-fly, based on a simple idea, premise, or game. Each skit is different and you never know what's going to happen. Improvisation has become more popular the past few years with the introduction of Drew Carey's show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
Newnan Community Theatre Company (NCTC) has it's own improvisational comedy troupe. The group practices weekly at the theatre, on Saturdays, and is called NITWITS. On October 3rd the troupe will have it's next performance. The show begins at 8 pm and the cost is $5 at the door. The NITWITS show is not for all ages and lasts about two hours.
Beginning October 10th, the NITWITS will be holding a six week course about the fundamentals of improvisation (NITWITS style).The course is free and will be held each Saturday from 3 to 6 pm at the theatre. At the end of the class, participants will have the opportunity to audition for the NITWITS troupe.
The final NITWITS show of 2009 will be November 21 at NCTC. NCTC is located at 24 1st Avenue in downtown Newnan (at the corner of Long Place and 1st Avenue).
