Improv troupe will serve up ‘Three Course Meal’


FARMINGTON — Western Maine improv troupe Teachers Lounge Mafia will bring its signature comedic performance, “Three Course Meal,” to The Granary on Front Street on Friday, April 30.

The evening of improvisational comedy/dinner theater will feature a trio of scenes or vignettes occurring inside a restaurant’s dining room. The show contains mature content.

Every scene is improvised, built on suggestions from the audience. As the stories play out, audience members find themselves in the middle of the action, maybe even becoming part of the event itself.

Following a brief intermission, Teachers Lounge Mafia will offer a nightcap set of crowd participation improv games designed to give willing participants a chance to flex their comic chops.

Teachers Lounge Mafia performs its original brand of improvisation and sketch comedy throughout western Maine and parts beyond. Most recently, the troupe brought laughter to a hospital benefit in New Hampshire and a Haitian relief effort at Mt. Blue High School.

Comic actors in Teachers Lounge Mafia are Emily Pottle, Gavin Pickering, Jeff Bailey, Kyla Wheeler, Natalie Bean, Alex Kreitzman and Dan Ryder. They take inspiration from “Saturday Night Live,” “Kids in the Hall,” “The State” and the works of Sam Peckinpah and A.A. Milne.

Dinner seating will begin at 6:15 p.m. Admission is $5, food and drink not included. Seating is limited. Advance tickets are available at The Granary or by calling 578-0357. Call at least two hours prior to showtime.
