Reno, NV, January 18, 2016: Reno/Tahoe’s #1 Comedy Troupe, The Utility Players, are returning to their rightful throne at the newly revamped Jester’s Theatre, inside the Sands Regency! Season 11 of this uproarious and irreverent improv show is positioned to be the greatest season the Players have ever had; now with a larger cast, an updated repertoire of games, and an unlimited potential for laughter! Shows this season begin February 6th, 2016 (the troupe's seventh birthday), and run every Saturday thereafter at 8pm through April 30th.
The show is 90 minutes of hard-hitting, side-splitting improv comedy in the style of Whose Line is It Anyway?. Creator and Host, Jessica Levity (Homeslice Productions), takes suggestions from the audience, allowing patrons to co-create the experience with the actors; each live and unscripted show is always fresh and always funny. Players invent characters, environments, and situations on the spot, based upon those suggestions from the audience. There’s a little bit of something for everyone: musical games, guessing games, and all-original games that The Utility Players have developed over their seven years as a troupe. Fans of the troupe will tell you that you’re guaranteed to laugh until your face hurts. That’s exactly why everyone from first-timers to longtime fans (called ‘Utilitarians’) can expect a one-of-a kind, unforgettable show, each and every week.
“I’ve heard multiple audience members, both newbies and those that we consistently see at shows, describe our last season as ‘on fire,’” said Jessica “The Jester” Levity, The Utility Players’ producer and host. “We are working with fervor to carry that ‘fire’ into our shows this coming season, and grow it larger than it’s ever been before.
Tickets for The Utility Players Season 11 are now available online at www.sandsregency.com, at the cage inside of the Sands, or at the door. Shows begin at 8:00pm, doors open at 7:30pm. The show is Rated R for language and adult themes. For more information about the troupe and the show, check out www.utilityplayerscomedy.com.
