Accomplished Improv Performers to Bring Laughs to Fayette Art Center

The actors in Offshoot Productions’ Gallery Players-- Andy Fleming, Darren Mathews, Parks Stamper and Paige Steadman-- bring a wide range of performing experience to the seemingly effortless improvisation they once again bring to the Fayette Art Center and Gallery on Friday evening, March 7. Despite their different backgrounds and relatively short time working together, they show an obvious mutual respect and delight in one another’s characters and contributions.

“One of the keys to successful improv performance,” said Susan M. Steadman, Ph.D., Offshoot’s artistic director. “is trust in the other actors. An actor needs to adjust moment by moment to whoever is on stage with him or her. You can’t rehearse a specific scene ahead of time, since the audience provides the details. But you can create trust and respect for one another’s comic contributions during the rehearsal process.”

The audience is certain to enjoy the all-new show, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15. Proceeds benefit both nonprofit companies, the Fayette Art Center and Gallery and Offshoot Productions.

Reservations may be made in person at the Fayette Art Center, 2011 West Highway 54, Fayetteville (across from Ace Hardware), by phone at (770) 631-2780, and online at
