Thingamajig Theatre Company’s children’s division — the Whatch-amawhozits — is presenting an Improv Showcase on Saturday, March 29 at 2 p.m. at the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts.

This spring the kids have focused on improvisation, speech, character development and stage presence. The Whatchamawhozits are kids ranging in age from 7-12 who are certain to delight the audience.

With audience participation, the young actors will have to stay on their imaginative toes and carefully follow the twists and turns of their acting partners’ imaginations — all the while staying in the maze of improv game rules that apply to each different game.

Tickets to the showcase are $5 and can be purchased at the door. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. for the show. The kids would love a nice rowdy audience for their showcase and your attendance would be greatly appreciated.

Following the Improv Showcase, the next project for the Whatchamawhozits will be the summer camp held in July. Camp includes one to three weeks of professional instruction by Thingamajig’s summer stock actors, directors and choreographers, a performance of Disney’s “Cinderella,” riding the incredible Center for the Arts float for the Fourth of July parade and a theater night out to see Thingamajig’s summer performance of “Beauty and the Beast.”
