Unexpected productions is a non-profit improv troupe that offers classes and multiple shows throughout the week. Some of their shows are also sold at a discount on Goldstar, although tickets are really affordable.

Depending on when you go or who's performing the show is a hit or miss. We usually go to the Theater Sports events - and we've seen some truly hilarious teams as well as some that are just mediocre.
