WIT’s in Full Bloom at the Capital Fringe Festival

Laughs, groans and more laughs were in abundance Saturday evening as WIT (Washington Improv Theater) rocked the Capital Fringe Festival at the Source Theatre. Special for the Festival, WIT’s theme is iSchool Musical. Although the topic, high school, is a given, the rest of the production is improvised in song by ideas from the audience. Saturday’s suggestion was a high school field trip to Quebec, Canada, where love was most humorously in the air. Not all troupe members had voices bound for Broadway, but all had impeccable comedic timing and were especially quick on their feet.

Unlike other Festival participants, WIT is a local presence, and performs regularly at the Source Theatre and other local venues. Not only is musical improv performed, but more traditional improv is also showcased. WIT also offers classes in improv. More information on WIT can be found at washingtonimprovtheater.com.

Ischool Musical will run on Friday, June 23 at 8 p.m., Saturday, July 24 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Visit capitalfringe.org for information on other Capital Fringe Festival performances.
