The latest is made up of the greatest as seasoned professional actors, writers, and improvisers have banded together to create IRTE, The Improvisational Repertory Theatre Ensemble, an ensemble of theatrical actors and writers who will develop, produce, and perform a season of original themed improvisational shows and video sketches following the basic model of traditional repertory theatre. 
 
After a successful run of HINT! which Outerstage called 
 
"a clever cacophony of topical humor, retro references, and  on-their-feet wit
... a merry chase" , 
 
they are following up with vIRTEgo, a short-form comedy improv show that will leave you dizzy!
 
 As further incentive to the audiences to join the fun, all IRTE performances  of "vIRTEgo" are FREE! 
"Short-form" comedy improv is quick and zippy, delivering, short-attention span "on-the-spot" games based on the audience's own zany and spontaneous suggestions. 

IRTE’s roster of merrymakers – led by artistic director Nannette Deasy – include Robert Baumgardner, Alex Decaneas, Curt Dixon, Adam Leong, Jamie Maloney, Danielle Montezinos, and Johnny Zito.

 

IRTE’s 2012 season continues with

Mrs. Carrol's 3rd Grade Houghton Mifflin Spelling Class (June 3, 6:00pm @ The Creek and The Cave, June 28, 11:00pm @ The PIT, $5) Imagine the words this group can come up with … and then using them in a sentence!!??
