"Get a Clue" Live Action Murder Mystery Tour of The Mark Twain House
Someone has killed Pap Finn! Was it Tom Sawyer in the Library with the wrench? Could it be the Connecticut Yankee in the Billiard Room with the knife? Some think it could be The Pauper in the Kitchen with the rope. A parody inspired by the classic Parker Brothers/Hasbro game CLUE, a full-fledged murder mystery is yours to solve on The Mark Twain House & Museum’s new “Get a Clue” Tour!

Ever noticed that many of the rooms in The Mark Twain House are the same as the ones on the iconic 1949 British board game (originally known as CLUEDO)? The Hall, the Dining Room and other opulent rooms become possible murder scenes in this classic challenge of deductive reasoning and detective skill. The hilarious Sea Tea Improv comedy troupe becomes the suspects, all based on famous characters from the Mark Twain novels created in this very house. In one hour, participants will be able to make accusations and figure out who sent the wretched Pap Finn to his doom, where it happened and what was used to off the scoundrel. Solve the mystery, laugh a lot, and save the day!

March 22 and 23
7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Hour-long tours depart every twenty minutes and must be reserved in advance.

Improv Open Mic *AND* Mixer!
https://www.facebook.com/events/146168482174262/

On Friday, June 8th at 8PM at the Hole in the Wall Theater, Sea Tea Improv will host an Improv Open Mic *AND* Improv Mixer!

$5 | BYOB
All proceeds go to support the Hole in the Wall, a community theater.

-- What the heck is this thing? --
This is a chance for anyone to come watch & participate in improv comedy in two fun ways!

- Improv Open Mic -
We're encouraging established improv groups to come sign up for 5 to 15 minute slots to perform short form games or short longforms! Try something experimental! Play your favorite games! Form a one-off group for the night! Get some work in with your team in front of an audience!

- Improv Mixer -
In between the open mic slots, we'll be doing mixed improv scenes just like the ones at VLAD the IMPROV-er's Connecticut Improv Mixers! Put your name on the list, and you'll be randomly paired with another improvisor of a complementary level to do a short improv scene! Whether you come alone or with a group for the open mic, you can put your name in for mixer scenes!

- Can I just watch? -
Well, yeah, sure... you can just watch. But we definitely encourage you to try it out! Even if you've never done improv before, we can pair you with an expert who will bend over backwards to make you look good. Sea Tea Improv and the CT improv community is a very supportive environment, and we all know that no one's perfect, and no one's good all the time.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Sea Tea Improv Presents an ImprovBoston Workshop with Will Luera
Sea Tea Improv is bringing Will Luera, the artistic director of ImprovBoston, to Hartford to teach a workshop on a longform improv style known as "Close Quarters" at TheaterWorks (233 Pearl Street, Hartford, CT) on Saturday, July 28th from 11AM to 2PM.

The members of Sea Tea Improv are taking this workshop, and we've got just 9 additional spots to fill, so we're telling Hartford-area improvisers about this great opportunity to join Sea Tea Improv for a workshop with this great instructor!

The cost of this workshop is $47 per person. For reference, a 3-hour workshop at ImprovBoston is $65 per person, but Sea Tea is using part of a grant from the City of Hartford that we got to bring outside improv instruction to Hartford to help cover some of the cost for CT improvisers!

There are only 9 spots, and since this is coming up very soon, the only fast and fair way we can think to offer these spots is first-come-first-served via a PayPal payment. (Note: you do not need PayPal account to pay via PayPal: you will see an option that says "Don't have a PayPal account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest.")

Physical Improv (Summer Improv Workshop Series)
Instructor: Kate Sidley
Cost: $35, $30 for college students

Say goodbye to talking heads! This workshop is designed to get improvisers relaxed and comfortable with being physically active on stage. Create a realistic subway car, dive off Niagra Falls, be a gnarled tree, and get swept up in a tornado. This class will give you the tools you need to create dynamic and active environments on stage while working physically and safely with other improvisers. You don’t need to be an athlete or contortionist to be physical in improv, but with the support of your team and some basic skills, you’ll have an audience applauding your every feat. Students should come prepared to move.

Build-A-Character (SOLD OUT!) (Summer Improv Workshop Series)
Instructor: Julia Pistell
Cost: $35, $30 for college students

Southern belles, sarcastic bellhops, and suspicious busboys-- we all know a well-drawn character when we see one. But how do you build them in the heat of the improv moment?
Veteran Sea Tea Improviser Julia Pistell will guide you through the process of creating a character within an improv scene without undermining the integrity of your story. Using your particular strengths, you'll create at least three characters that you can play with for the rest of your improv days. We'll work with point of view, philosophy, and physicality to create characters that last for much longer than a single laugh. We promise: a character is a lot more than a silly voice or an impression. Come and meet your other selves!

Hanging with Harold - Weekly Drop-In Jam
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a learn-by-doing drop-in jam where Sea Tea Improv and members of the improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) perform a kind of longform improv together known as the Harold.

"You'll have to do about a hundred Harolds to start feeling comfortable with the form." - Matt Besser, founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade

We will keep track of the cumulative number of Harolds done by each participant from week to week. Each week, we will do 1, 2 or 3 Harolds (time depending), and everyone who participates will add to their Harold total toward everyone's personal goal of 100 completed Harolds.

We'll be doing this on Thursdays for the rest of 2012, and moving to Wednesdays at 8PM starting in January.

Who will be first to reach 100 Harolds completed?

Who killed that varmint Pap Finn and why did they wait ‘til Christmas to do it??? Play our live-action version of the classic game CLUE in the Mark Twain House. Was it Becky Thatcher with a stake of holly in the Conservatory? The Prince (or was it the Pauper?) with the slay-bells in the library?

This hour long tour features SEA TEA IMPROV as Twain's beloved characters/suspects and all the murder, mayhem and merriment associated with what the author called "that infernal Christmas suicide." Featured on an upcoming Travel Channel show “Wackiest Tours!”

ONE NIGHT ONLY Tours step off every 15 minutes.

Reservations required.
