      Acapocalyspe: Creatures of Impulse Debuts New Show

      Sept 20-21, 8pm both days

      Creatures of Impulse, the City of Pleasanton's popular CPRS Award-winning teen improv troupe, just keeps getting better and more interesting every season. This year's troupe consists of 29 high school youth ages 14-18, and marks the largest cast to date, with students from Amador, Foothill, Granada, and California high schools. They kick off their 7th season with a bang at The Un-Scripted Theater Company in San Francisco. "Acapocalypse" debuts a brand new long-form format they have been developing. The unique show is based on the concept of an improvised teen post-apocalyptic a cappella musical: a mash-up of several of COI's popular concept shows.

      "The show is the brain-child of COI member Sabrina Finke," according to the group's director Mark Duncanson. "In 2011, the teen performers of COI began developing improv formats with the goal being to push the boundaries of theatrical improvisation for teens, attempting to bring to their audiences new ways to enjoy the art of improv, and new ways to keep it fresh and exciting for themselves."

      So how do they get to play a professional theater venue in San Francisco? COI director and artistic driving-force Mark Duncanson not only managed all the troupe's activities this summer, he also won a role and performed in "Gold Rush!" an improvised Barbary Coast musical produced by the Un-Scripted Theater Company, which led to the opportunity.

      The cast of Acapocalypse will consist of Creatures of Impulse members Sabrina Finke, Trevor March, Olivia Scrivner, Raz Mostaghimi, Tommy Herz, and COI's newest Main Stage cast members Rachel Reichenbach and Bryn Doyle.
