There will also be “Affair” and “Swinger” rounds where teams are mixed and matched to see how they improvise without their partner. Whether you love or hate Valentine’s Day, you will have fun at this crazy comedy showcase.

This show format is for everyone and anyone wanting to have a night out of laughs and side-splitting comedy.

The Mask Messenger is a physical theatre and comedy in the guise of a lecture/demonstration about masks. The show brims with wisdom and insight, even though at times audiences are laughing too hard to notice. Spoken word and body language combine seamlessly to make this show fly. A menagerie of characters unmasks the folly humans encounter when they act as if life were simple and appearances were not deceiving. In vignettes ranging from comic to poignant to bizarre, the show includes expressive silent masks brought to life with outrageous physicality, comic characters who speak from behind half-masks, and exotic creatures created by masks worn on other parts of the body.

Buy tickets here. Adult/Senior $16; Student/Child $12; Family of 4+ $10/ticket. Click here for info on the February Mix and Match Comedy and Music BOGO special.
