THEY improv works with a lot of venues and different sized groups of audiences. Some of these know each other, such as within a company or at a country club, and some are more for the general public, like a restaurant.
For each of these, having comedians who directly interact with members of the audience has proven to be a favorite.
Into this environment, THEY improv developed and now presents The Frick & Frack Show! For this kind of show, THEY improv first introduces the idea that the audience members will be directly spoken to. We expect them to accept any facts that we present to them, such as who they are, that they're in the mob, etc. If we ask details, they can provide any details that they like. The audience then leads the performers on a journey trying to piece together the details of the show.
By reducing the cast to just two, we are able to bring the cost down slightly. It doesn't get cut in half because the performers have to be more experienced, but it can mean the difference between choosing a show and going without.
Towards the end, we bring the main suspects up and ask the audience to determine the murderer. Sometimes we reward the most accurate table, sometimes the prizes just go to the suspects. Regardless, the emphasis is on the fun aspects.
For now, theme-wise, we are using the themes from the Cambridge Solution. Some of these are listed below. Later specific themes will likely be developed.
The event usually runs the full course of dinner, from salad through dessert, but can be scheduled to operate in other ways. Contact THEY improv for more information on how the Frick & Frack Show can be the perfect corporate or private murder mystery for your team building, or for public shows as a charity fundraiser or restaurant entertainment.
While we improvise most of the show based on the audience and their reactions, we can theme the night any way you wish. This means we can create literally any scenario. Most of our clients, though, go with a more standard scenario such as the ones we use for our Cambridge Solution shows. We are providing you with some of those scenarios below to reference as possible starting points though we can certainly go any direction you like.
