MSU Theatre Presents ‘UnScripted’ Improv Comedy

Michigan State University’s Department of Theatre presents MSU UnScripted  Dec. 1-4 in Studio 60 in the Auditorium Building.  

This night of comedy will feature MSU students performing a mix of classic and new improv games. Every performance will be completely different because everything is made up on the spot, or “unscripted,” inspired by audience suggestions. The 26 student performers have been placed on five different teams, and each team will perform twice over the run of five shows.

“One of my favorite principles of improvisation is the idea that there are no mistakes, only opportunities to explore a new idea,” said Director Sarah Hendrickson, MSU Department of Theatre Improvisation and Acting faculty. “Improv comedians are constantly looking at given circumstances with a new perspective and working as an ensemble to achieve a common goal. We strive, in the Department of Theatre, to help students push the boundaries of discovery to become artists and find the humor in things whenever possible.” 

Tickets for MSU UnScripted are $23.50 for general admission, $21.50 for seniors and MSU faculty and staff, and $13.50 for students. Tickets are available online at, at the Wharton Center box office, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
