Ant Farm

There are a lot of different types of improv out there. One thing you almost never see is a single person on stage playing all the characters. Another thing you almost never see is improvisers making up songs on the spot. This show does both of those things at the SAME. TIME. Come out and see one of the rarest forms of improv on the scene today! Come along with Anthony Francis and his magical musical partner Tony Tata as they take you on a wild journey full of characters, adventure and music!
