Baby Wants Candy (NYC), Jill Bernard’s Drum Machine (HUGE Theatre, Minneapolis, Minn.), Tara Copeland (Los Angeles), Jeff Hiller (Los Angeles), Diamond Lion (UCBeast, NYC), Shakespeare: The Musical (UN-Scripted Theatre Company, San Francisco, CA),  Mansical (Chicago), Trudy Carmichael’s Musical Mixer (Las Vegas/NYC), Choral Rage (Magnet Theater, NYC), and MORE!
On Sunday, October 7, 2012, the Festival will present a special performance to benefit Gilda’s Club of New York City to raise funds and awareness for people living with cancer.  The benefit will feature many of the top musical improv artists in the country.  Learn more about this star studded event here!
