Girls Girls Girls Improvised Musicals

Austin, TX

Girls Girls Girls is Austin, Texas' oldest all-female musical theater improvisation troupe. Their specialty is creating full-length improvised Broadway musicals from a single audience suggestion. In other words the Girls and their live musicians make up the songs, dances, characters and stories to create one complete, blow-your-socks-off musical...and they do it completely on the fly.

Girls Girls Girls Improvised Musicals has been an artistic collective since September 2002. They have had the pleasure of performing in festivals in Minneapolis, Seattle, Honolulu, Atlanta, Dallas and, of course, our home of Austin, Texas. GGG has taken the honor of Best of the Week of Frontera Fest (ATX), as well as recognition as Austin's Best Improv Troupe in the Austin Chronicle. GGG conceived and produced the Ladies Are Funny Festival (L.A.F.F.), a comedy showcase for women from around the world.

- Austin Chronicle's Best of Austin: Winner: Best Improv Group

Cast:James Rone, Tom Reed


Minneapolis, MN

Ringo is James Rone, Tom Reed and a guitar combining forces to create tight-harmonied acoustic songs and hilarious scenes based on an audience suggestion. It's what would happen if you put your favorite bromance in a blender with the Indigo Girls and pressed the "improv" button.

Ringo combines musical and comedic prowess to deliver an innovative brand of improv that delights audiences on stages across Minneapolis. The members of Ringo perform regularly at Comedy Sportz, Brave New Workshop and Huge Theater and in leading roles in musical theater and hit soul music ensemble, The Robinson Crusoe Organization.
