One Size Fits All Improv offers free tickets to show at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette

Members of One Size Fits All Improv are offering free tickets to their comedy show on Saturday (Jan. 10) to people who attend Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette's New Volunteer Orientation the same day.

The orientation and the show will take place at the historic Monon Depot Theatre on the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. The orientation runs from 10 a.m. to noon, while the show begins at 8 p.m. Each person attending the orientation will receive one free ticket.

"Officials and volunteers at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette have supported One Size Fits All for more than a decade," said Steve Martin, co-director of the comedy group. "The theatre has served as a location for classes, rehearsals and performances since the first summer workshop classes taught by Barry Schreier in the 1990s. It is appropriate for One Size Fits All Improv to support Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette in promoting the New Volunteer Orientation."

The orientation will bring together almost a dozen established Civic volunteers to discuss their involvement with the theatre as actors, directors, producers and designers, and to answer questions from prospective volunteers. The orientation is free and open to the public.

"During the orientation, people will learn about volunteer opportunities at Civic Theatre," said Steven Koehler, managing director of the theatre. "Using their free ticket to attend the Improv show that evening, people can experience the excitement of a live performance in the same venue they were introduced to that morning.

"The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities. The free New Volunteer Orientation and free Improv show ticket giveaway will help us continue to meet that mission."

Although walk-ins are welcome, people who wish to attend the orientation are encouraged to e-mail Koehler at steve@lafayettecivic.org or phone 765-423-PLAY (7529) to reserve a spot.

Civic Theatre of Greater of Lafayette is a member of the Tippecanoe Arts Federation, which serves arts organizations in 14 Indiana counties: Benton, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Howard, Jasper, Montgomery, Newton, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Warren and White.
