Part rallying cry, part group hug, Rise Up! is an artistic response to the life and times we live in.

Rise Up! explores all the ways the personal really is political, and vice versa.

The Line-up

I Mean Seriously
A dramatic monoscene as real people living in today’s tumultuous time. Although the show won’t be *about* politics, it will shine a light on those tensions current events are causing. This is serious improv for serious times.
Cast: Jordana Mishory, Dan O’Neil

Press Play: They Were the WORST
What if history’s heroes were the worst instead of the best? Inspired by audience suggestions, Press Play explores how pivotal moments history may have turned out if our forebears were completely incompetent.
Cast: Erick Acuña, Sabahat Chaudhary, Jon Chesebro, J.J. Jackson, Eva Lewis, Dana Malone, Matt Mansfield, Josh Seiden, Jason Walther

Nox! Presents: Leakers Gon’ Leak
How many staffers does it take to find the leak? Nox! explores what happens when a leak takes on a life of its own.
Cast: Lura Barber, Annie Barry, Alex Beard, Sean Paul Ellis, Jenna Hall, John Heiser, Brianna Lux, Aaron Mosby, Matt Winterhalter, Chris Ulrich
