About “What Improv Group?!?!” (W.I.G.):
Now in its 4th Season, W.I.G.’s stellar journey continues!  Crafty, “sketchy” and mind-blowing storytelling and wig-wearing characters define W.I.G.’s distinct take on improv… featuring everything from the absurdly hilarious to the deeply touching, and everywhere in between!  W.I.G. began its on-stage journey (and first season) in February of 2009. W.I.G. is an interactive experience… incorporating audience suggestions and participation. W.I.G.’s cast always includes an amazing mix of HCC students, alumni as well as guest artists, and performs in HCC’s theatres (often to sold out houses) as well as local venues.  And now, W.I.G. will include its first off-shoot troupe during its upcoming 2012-2013 season… featuring the most amazing teen improv actors you’ve ever seen!
