Opening Night: Big City Improv and Rintersplit (SF Improv Festival 2012)
Big City Improv was originally founded as The Oakland Playhouse in 2000 by Justin Neal and Jayne Entwistle before a move to San Francisco inspired the name change. Collectively our current cast has over 100 years of improv experience!
Short-form improv is fast, furious and funny! Audience suggestions and participation figure prominently in the show, so get ready to shout our your ideas or join us on stage for your 15 minutes of fame. We promise, we'll be gentle.
Rintersplit performs "Ghost Hunters", starting with a monologue based on a fear inspired by the suggestion. This is used as a jumping off point for scene painting, which then transitions into a monoscene, with the team using the trappings of the room fashioned earlier. The timeline is punctuated by a run deconstructing the climatic events of "the Split." The characters then react to the revelations of the events in the second half.
Cooked up in 2010 from the Incubator in Philadelphia, Rintersplit has played all over the Philly regional area. Watch as Rintersplit performs improv with their made-up, splintered wit.
