Joining the fun on Friday, October 25 is 5 Play!
5 Play is the popular East Bay long-form improv group that has been captivating audiences around the Bay Area since 2009. Their cast explores the fun, exciting, and silly nature of human relationships in an unforgettable show of completely improvised scenes and stories. 5 Play’s show format consists of a fully improvised story inspired by an audience suggested title. Since 2010, they have performed regularly as the core group at Made Up Theatre in Fremont.  The cast members have improvised together since 2005, and their chemistry as a group creates a unique and high-energy improv show.

Also performing on Friday, October 25 is Suburban Thunder Improv Teens and Encore Improv Troupe.
These two teams bring a new perspective on improv to our stage.

Competing against ST!C on Saturday, October 26th is Ready Players One!
Ready Players One formed in the robot car-infested city of Palo Alto out of the BATS (Bay Area Theater Sports) performance class series. They've been playing together as classmates for two years, and have recently started putting on their own shows in Palo Alto and San Francisco. When not performing or practicing in living-rooms, they like eavesdropping on venture capitalists at Philz and Starbucks, and making bets as to which parts of the city Google will buy next.

Rounding out the performances on Saturday is Improv Anonymous. This is the house team at Plethos Productions in Castro Valley.
