The 8pm opens with OKC-based short form group Take One Improv followed by Magician and Mentalist William Rader who will wow the audience with his incredible feats of mind reading! The 8pm closes out with Twinprov's mind-blowing Rap-sody show, in which an audience suggestion is dynamically explored and expanded upon through a series of alternating improvised scenes and rap/hip-hop songs.

The 10pm starts off with the boundary crossing comedy of The Big O followed by the politically charged duo One State Two State Red State Blue State. Ballpark Theatre Company will close out the night with their Stageflix show in which they create an entire cinematic story in a particular genre inspired by audience suggestions.

OKC Improv will begin a new session of weekly improv classes for adults starting Saturday, March 17, 2011, continuing through April 21, 2012 at Ghostlight Theatre Club (3110 N Walker, OKC).
