FST Improv Festival

July 13-15

They’re back to liven up your summer, those 23 clever improv comedy troupes from across the country appearing in Florida Studio Theatre’s ninth annual Improv Festival. That’s three days of nonstop comedy—35 performances in all—including the off-Broadway hit, BLANK! The Musical, perennial fave troupes North Coast and Available Cupholders, and our own FST Improv. Another audience favorite, Improv Boston, will stick around an extra week for shows Friday and Saturday nights, July 21 and 22, and workshops July 17-20.

Bello Nock


Through July 29

Just two more weeks to catch Bello Nock’s hair-raising circus show at the Historic Asolo Theater; IncrediBello! runs through July 29. An hour-long version of the 90-minute show he performed on Broadway, it’s equal parts comedy and gasp-inducing daredevilry, and great summertime fun for children of all ages.
