Lovers of improv comedy now have to schlep to Boston and Cambridge to see performances, but a group of actors based in Framingham is trying to get a MetroWest performance troupe organized.
Doug Freeman, a founding member of the Framingham Community Theatre group, said he realized there was a need for a MetroWest improv group while performing in the recent “Mobsters of Framingham” dinner theater production.
“One of the things I recognized is there were a lot of talented and funny people, and the director emphasized a lot of improv work while we did our rehearsals,” said Freeman.
He and other cast members decided to try it out. They’ve had one meeting so far, and will hold another on Aug. 9, at 7 p.m. to further organize and welcome anyone with comedy and performance skills who want to explore joining the group.
Like the Framingham Community Theatre group, the improv group will be based out of the Performing Arts Center of Metrowest at 140 Pearl St. in Framingham, which is where the meeting will be.
For more information, call Freeman at 508-596-9351 or go to the Performing Arts Center website at www.pacmetrowest.org for directions.
