Making people laugh is never easy. Doing it on stage, in front of a packed house, with no script and no idea what happens next - that's the challenge of improvisational comedy. The best improv troupe around is Middlebury College's Otter Nonsense, which returns to Town Hall Theater on March 15.
"This is the fourth year in a row they've come off the hill to entertain the community," says THT executive director Douglas Anderson. "They're so quick and so funny, and the audience just loves them."
Otter Nonsense has always been famous on campus, but the THT performances have created new fan base for them in the community. The performers stress that their material is always rated PG, appropriate for the entire family.
Otter Nonsense invades Middlebury's Town Hall Theater tonight, March 15 at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $12/$6 Middlebury Student ID, and may be purchased at www.townhalltheater.org, 382-9222, at the THT box Office (Mon-Sat, Noon-5 pm), or at the door.
