They're presenting something entirely new: “Everything You Think Is Wrong,” an improv show at the Chameleon Theater this Friday night.
Admission to the 8 p.m. show is by donation.
The Chairs — Misha Cassella-Blackburn, Solomon Dusseljee and Katherine Atkins — are celebrating “Everything You Think Is Wrong” Day, an occasion observed each March 15.
On this day, according to the lore, nothing goes as anyone thinks it will. This day is “one of many zany celebrations you can find,” Pipia said.
The Chairs troupe considered doing a show around Peanut Butter Day, another such occasion, but “when they heard about 'Wrong Day,' that was it,” Pipia said.
This will be a night given over to improv based on audience input, he added.
“Come and see what the audience suggests, or make the suggestions yourself. That's how the scenes always start,” said Pipia.
“In one particular improv, The Chairs will take an audience member on stage with them. [They] promise to be good stewards of all volunteers.”
The troupe, which Pipia has directed for years, is invitation-only and is dedicated to performance improvisation.
No reservations are needed to catch Friday's performance at the Chameleon Theater, 800 W. Park Ave. More information is at 360-379-1068.
