What’s going O.N. with Improv in the AV?

In the Antelope Valley, there is a large theatre and acting community, and included in the art of acting, there’s improvisation acting, or better known as Improv. One group that is outstanding right now is the group O.N. Improv.

Improv is the practice of acting, singing, talking and reacting, of  creating, in the moment actions. Basically, everything is made up on the spot in response to the connection to one or more people involved with the group.

O.N. Improv started in 2009 and was founded by Chris Murphy, as it states on their facebook page, He formed the Improv Club under a local theater group withMelissa Martin.  He is no longer involved with the group, but new  faces have come to join the stage along the way  including Andrew PariAnthony MooreShannon HayRoy Ellison, Casey Hills, Jeff Maki, Wesley King, and Mike Geriarte. Together these fine young men and women collaborate together and meet each week inside the walls of  Lancaster’s Cedar Center to practice and enhance their skills as actors and comedians alike. Every first Wednesday of the month,  The members of O.N Improv put their talent to work for the public’s entertainment at Butler’s Coffee House in Palmdale where they enthrall the ever-growing crowd of supporters in the theatre world.

If you would like more information about joining Improv, or would just like to see more what they are about,
