The Maniacs is an improvisational performing arts troupe. We specialize in adult comedy, tackling topics that would not necessarily be appropriate for Moonlight's youth improv group, The Lunatics.
So, what is Improv? Improvisational Comedy is a form of theatre where most or all of what is performed is created spontaneously with suggestions from the audience – no scripts or prior preparation. In its purest form, the dialogue, the action, the story, and the characters are created collaboratively by the performers as the improvisation unfolds. The Maniacs specialize in short form improvisational comedy, meaning that our shows consist of several small scenes or games much like the format of the television show “Whose Line is it Anyway?”
