Left of Centre (Market) in Wheeling Is a Funny Place to Be Saturday: It’s Improv!

Left of Centre Players include, bottom row from left, Sandra Baker, Jennifer Kellner-Muscar, Mario Muscar, Ryan Sears and Mindy Sears. Back row, from left, are Sherrie Dunlevy, Deb Smith, Evan Oslund, Bert Furioli and Tim Thompson.

WHEELING — Join the Left of Centre Improv Players for a night of improvisational comedy at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at Oglebay Institute’s Towngate Theatre.

Under the direction of Towngate Theatre director Tim Thompson, the troupe comprises veteran performers and talented newcomers. The show includes plenty of audience participation as these actors, armed only with adrenaline and their imaginations, invent characters and lines on the spot and turn audience suggestions into narrative stories that entertain and amuse.

Audiences will be amazed as the actors take simple suggestions and make something up that is funny, interesting and completely real to everyone in the room.

This show is intended for mature audiences; strong language is possible. Tickets can be purchased at www.oionline.com, at the door (if available) or by calling 304-242-7700. Refreshments, including beer and wine, are available for purchase at the show.

The show is part of Towngate’s Second Season, which brings comedy, poetry, live music and more to the Towngate stage when live theater is not in production. It is sponsored by Main Street Bank.
