by Molly Matlock, Executive Director of ChathamArts
You’ve spent countless hours watching “Who’s Line Is it Anyway?” (while secretly believing that you too could be that funny if only given the chance).
But you have NOT yet experienced the likes of the Coconauts, ChathamArts & Chatham County’s first live (as in not dead) Improv Squad.
The Coconauts will be performing 2nd Fridays at Circle City Late Nite at the General Store Cafe, 10 pm.
And will be doing longer shows every 3rd Friday at Davenport & Winkleperry Steampunk Gallery, 9 pm. Davenport has wild Victorian wear, a blimp mural, coffee, tea, and a PUB.
For the full skinny, read the article in the December 2011 issue of the Chatham County Line (thank you, Julian Serrano)! http://chathamcountyline.org/
P.S. A couple of corrections-
1. The Coconauts were founded in October 2011 (not in 2008) and emerged from ChathamArts’ community classes, which launched with a beginning improv acting class in 2009.
None of the Coconauts had any improv experience at that time. Many of them recall being terrified, but now improv is an addiciton that they refuse to give up.
2. Molly Matlock, Executive Director of Chatham County Arts Council, does not perform with the Coconauts. However, she did participate in the intro and intermediate classes for a year and LOVED them.
[So, now you’ll be prepared for Coconauts Trivia Night – some day.]
3. You too can register for ChathamArts’ improv classes (or other classes in photography, art history, portraiture, and much more) at http://www.chathamarts.org/classes-camps/
