Change the Channel: A Jumble of Sketch Comedy, Improv, and Dance

Change the Channel (to channel the change) is a sketch comedy and improv collective directed by local wonders Toni Nagy and Patrick Donnelly. Change the Channel is the name of the show and the primary goal, with comic theater that poses questions about ourselves and society. Be prepared to think, cry, laugh, heal, and potentially have a moment where your brain buffers and you ask yourself with a contorted expression of utter confusion, “what is happening here?” A mind boggling existential play will be interspersed with improv comedy as well as original dance works by collective members and other local artists. Change the channel is intended for a mature audience and might not be suitable for children according to your particular parenting style. Please connect with us if you'd like to bring your kids but want to know more. Purchasing or reserving tickets in advance is recommended.
