RENO, Nev. (February 27, 2017) – The Utility Players, Reno-Tahoe's most popular, homegrown comedy show, return to their stage inside Jester's Theater at Sands Regency for their 13th Season, which runs every Saturday night for 13 weeks at 8pm, beginning March 4th. Their show features 90 minutes of Rated R, short-form improv comedy, in the style of Whose Line Is It Anyway?. With the success of centering all shows in their 12th season around a "theme", they've kept the momentum going with 13 new, weekly themes.
"It's still the same, ridiculously funny show fans love, but, with the addition of themes, it allows us to be more adventurous with our marketing, while at the same time spicing up the live show," explains Director of Marketing and the man behind the creative photoshopping, Derek Armstrong.
Some of this season's themes include the season premiere tribute to "Puberty", in honor of their 13th season, "Censorship" on March 25th, which pokes fun at and digs deep into the role of censorship in our modern culture, and a dark twist on "Mother's Day" on May 13th, with an ode to the film "Psycho" . The full list of themes can be found on the blog page at www.utilityplayerscomedy.com.
Created and hosted by Jessica The Jester Levity, The Utility Players have been playing together since 2009; every improv show is a unique co-creation between The Utility Players and their patrons (only 120 tickets available each show). Tickets for their regular season shows are available at the Sands Regency Box Office, or online at www.sandsregency.com.
"The Utility Players have become family to the Sands. Their show is by far the funniest in town and we look forward to another great season," says Pete McHugh, General Manager of Sands Regency.
Tickets are $15, and the show takes place in the new Jester's Theater, next to the buffet at the Sands. See it once, or see it every week, this side-splitting show is always fresh, always funny, and guaranteed to hit the spot.
