About the Show
Kenn Adams' Adventure Theater! is a fast-paced, outrageously funny, and uniquely interactive show that uses the art of improvisation to engage the entire audience from beginning to end. It's an action-packed, theatrical adventure in which veteran improv-comedian Kenn Adams uses audience volunteers, onstage and off, to help create the play. More than twenty audience members will end up on stage by the end of the show, and several scenes take place directly in the audience section, transforming the crowd into parts of the space ship, trees and creatures in the haunted forest, and surprise characters that leap out of nowhere! Audience members make all of the sound effects, name the characters, decide what happens next, and even play the heroes of the story as Kenn masterfully incorporates all of their sounds, suggestions, actions and dialogue into a hysterically funny and outrageously spontaneous performance.
There are three different versions of the show to choose from:
Episode I: Adventure in Space!
Episode II: The Myth-Adventures of Melanie Moe!
Episode III: Adventure Beneath the Sea!
Kenn Adams' Adventure Theater! is perfect for venues of any size. Kenn has performed his show in 800-seat theaters as well as 50-seat library meeting rooms and everything in between. The show requires just 60-minutes for load in and strike, and has minimal technical requirements.
