This Wednesday at 8:30, Megawatt gets a new team! Refreshing? Possibly. Mind-blowing? Definitely. World Peace Ending?…No, probably not. Fresh out of Peter McNerney’s Level 6, The Party Lions plan to complete the circle of improv life at The Magnet Theater, and features performers from The Story Pirates, Kiss*Punch*Poem, Scoresby, Inspirado, Whisky Tango Foxtrot and We Just Might Kiss. Wow.
Coached by the incredible Kelly Buttermore (Horses), The Party Lions consists of JR Harrington, Evan Barden, Katie Hammond, Nathan Peterman, Bianca Casusol, Gretchen Poole, Brian Frange and Willy Appelman. Like them on Facebook for more updates and info on Megawatt’s newest ensemble!
The Party Lions premier at Megawatt THIS WEDNESDAY at 8:00pm. We’re not psychic, but we’re guessing this baby will sell out. You cannot make reservations for Megawatt’s later in the evening (since it’s pay once, stay as long as you’d like), so if you want to be there, the MBlog highly recommends showing up early to the 7pm Megawatt and sticking around. Reservations for the 7pm Megawatt can be made here. Be there!
It’s here! The Leap Year. Megawatt only falls on a Leap Year once every 1,000 years…This wednesday everything has gone haywire!

What is Megawatt?
Megawatt is a weekly showcase of the Magnet’s signature house teams! Six of the teams perform every Wednesday and two musical teams perform every Tuesday. All Megawatt performers have graduated from the Magnet Training Center and are lead by a Magnet assigned director. Megawatt teams perform a variety of forms, styles, and structures – all of which are fueled by hilarious improvisers playing at the top of their intelligence.

After completion, you become eligible for an invitation to audition. Auditions are held periodically throughout the year.
