Hit and Run: Musical Improv®

Playing Friday nights at 9:00 PM.
Tickets are $13 advance, $15 door.

Colorado's ORIGINAL unscripted musical improv comedy team!  Based on the suggestion of a title from the audience, the performers of Hit and Run: Musical Improv create an unscripted hour-long Broadway-style comedy musical from scratch.  HNR features live accompaniment, dancing, soaring ballads, and more emotional outbursts than Rent and The Phantom Of The Opera combined.  Sondheim and Lloyd Webber take years to write a musical, but HNR creates a brand new one every week.  You won't want to miss it!
