District of Columbia Arts Center (DCAC)
Sweaty palms, accelerated heartbeats: this October, WIT is redefining stage fright. Every Washington Improv Theater show is a spontaneous, one-time-only event. There’s no telling what dangers will pop out of the dark, since none of the performers on stage have a script. This run features the improvised slasher film Die! Die! Die! and a witches brew of Halloween concoctions from WIT’s company ensembles and guest troupes from across the District.

When: Fri Oct 24 2014 (7:30 PM)
Where: DC Arts Center, 2438 18TH STREET NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20009
