HIJINX! presents Home For the Holidays: You grow up. You move away. You lose touch with your old friends. Then…you come home for the holidays. What happens when 4 old friends get back together for one night at their favorite hangout in their home town? What cracks will be exposed? What roads not taken will be peered down? Who will get drunk and hook up? Come see HIJINX (featuring players from WIT’s fabled house team JINX) explore the ins and outs of old friendships seen in a new light.
Cast: Jordan Hirsch, Sean Murphy, Amanda Hirsch, Greg Tindale
Jackson, Millissippi presents Jackson, Millissippi Saves Christmas!: THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, all is not merry and bright. In the year’s biggest blockbuster, Christmas itself is under attack! But fear not: it won’t go down without some kind of climactic CGI fight. *Note: due to budgetary constraints, the entire film will be acted out by two guys in plaid shirts and sneakers.
Cast: Bryan Jackson, Dan Milliken
Die! Die! Die!The October IssueDrawing inspiration from the movie Love Actually, the show takes place in our fair city of Washington, D.C. Improv Actually introduces us to an eclectic mix of Washingtonians who are falling in love, falling out of love, and (quite possibly) falling back in love again.
sssscast of singer-improvisers instantly creates a compelling new show with each performance, comprised of completely improvised scenes, lyrics and music, all inspired by a single audience suggestion.
