Crumbsworth is a group of Houston improvisers from Station Theater performing an improv favorite form, “The Slacker”. In the Slacker, tag-outs are used to transition to new scenes, but at least one character from each scene always transitions into the following scene. It’s fun! Crumbsworth formed in 2015 and prides themselves on having a Matthew Mcconaughey appearance in approximately 9 out of 10 of their performances.

A Penny Dreadful presents improvised narratives in the style of the Gothic Horror genre. The cast takes the stage to the Toccata and Fugue. We then take a suggestion — “Imagine a spooky mansion. What sort of rooms would be in such a place?” — which then spurs the show. The story focuses on love being threatened, one of the show’s main grounding themes. The pacing alternates between slow-paced intensity and higher-energy horror scenes. The format utilizes character monologues to better understand backstories and relationships as well as character naiveté to allow horror to escalate throughout the show. In addition, members of the cast provide “scene-ography”, which entails creating environments and emotions using their bodies

Can’t Tell Us Nothing is a group inspired by Kanye West. That means we’ve got opinions and you’re gonna hear them. Follow our characters down rabbit holes in our fast-paced improv shows. Our genius can’t be defined or contained. And just when you think you’ve seen our best…Hold Up!….We’ll create something even better.
