FARMINGTON – The Mt. Blue Curtain Raisers Improv Troupe will return to the stage Thursday and Friday, Oct. 23-24, to present its new show, “It Shall Be Unlawful” – and even the actors don’t know what the title means.

The Curtain Raisers perform a combination of improv games in the vein of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” plus longer, more extended comic scenes based on suggestions provided by the audience. The group’s recent workshop and performance at ImprovBoston injected another dose of organized comedic chaos to the formula. Audiences can expect favorite games like “Excuses” and “Diagnosis,” but are warned: no show is ever the same.

With each fall comes a new crew of Curtain Raisers, featuring returning veterans and rookie comedians. Four-year member Zoe Hardy and fellow experienced comics Carolyn Magri, Morgen Hall, Nick Beach, Jessica Baxter, Anthea Fletcher and Jakob Wyder welcome Stuart Lawson, Joseph Slater, Alex Allen and Morgan Spencer to the clan.

Doors open at 7:p.m. with showtime at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $3. For more information, contact Artistic Director Dan Ryder at [email protected]
