MopCo Offers “Laughternoon” Comedy for Seniors [Berkshire on Stage]
Who says improv is just for the young’uns? Laughternoon – an afternoon of fun, interactive comedy and music at the Mopco Improv Theatre in Schenectady – is specifically designed for older audience members. This month’s show takes place at 2pm on Tuesday (April 4). Tickets are available online at mopco.org/shows/ or by phone at 518-577-MPCO (6726). Tickets are priced at $9 (includes complimentary tea or coffee and a cookie), and discounted tickets ($8) are available to groups of ten or more.
The Laughternoon show is part of an effort to involve a diverse range of people in improv activities. “At our first Laughternoon we had so much fun,” said director Michael Burns, “asking the audience what they wanted to see, singing improvised songs with them and having some willing volunteers help us out on stage. Plus, one gentleman said his cookie was ‘the best oatmeal raisin cookie I ever had!’ We had four generations creating together in one room – and it was a blast!”
