Mission Critical
Tirelessly delivering deliverables that align with our values and our strategic plan in pursuit of our vision for a better tomorrow, today. We are Mission Critical, an improvised satire of non-profit, non-governmental-organization, life. Feel our impact. And measure it. All cast members have experienced the life-fulfilling joy of working at a non-profit; names may be changed to protect the guilty. Mission Critical is a 501(c)(3) non-profit performance ensemble and your laughter is fully deductible within the extent of the law.

Rotating Cast Includes: Brent Buxton, Grace Campion, John Carroll, Mark Chalfant, Niv Elis, Mikail Faalasli, Meghan Faulkner, Dana Heiser, Hilary Joel, Peter Jones, Adam Levine, Jordana Mishory, Clare Mulligan, Molly Murchie, Anna Nelson, Stacey Pelika, Matt Strote, Elaine Tinkelman, Samantha Watson

The Hypothesis
The Hypothesis combines science and improv to both inform and delight audiences. Come prepared with your burning science questions you always wanted answered and see it examined under a microscope. Or simply get ready to have your mind blown, and funny bone tickled, as the Hypothesis dishes about all things science!
Cast: Ceci De Robertis, Tom Di Liberto, Nina Hsu, Jordana Mishory, Henry Ring, Goli Samimi, Nic Small, Bethany Stokes, Slli’m Williams

Uncle Gorgeous
Embark on a delightful journey with Uncle Gorgeous as we celebrate the charm of vintage technology! We’ll ask for your favorite piece of old-school tech, then delve into a brief interview to capture the essence of its nostalgic allure. Brace yourself for a 25-minute whimsical supercut of the highs, lows, hilarity, beauty, and of course, scandal of existing in today’s world. The performers will feel like your favorite fun uncles when they improvise a feel-good comedy set full of reminiscence and unscripted fun.
Cast: Samiyyah Ali, Joey Breems, Jessie Cali, Tom Di Liberto, Madeline Dozier, Mikail Faalasli, Rae Lang, Kristina Martinez, Ryan McCloskey, Jordana Mishory, Jamal Newman, Kelsey Peters
