First Five w/Democratic Sketch Collective

  • Urban Harvest Brewing Company 1024 S. 5th Street Milwaukee, WI 53204 (map)

Movie lovers, rejoice! Ampersand Theater Company is proud to present another installment of FIRST FIVE, where David Ryan Lane and his hand-picked team of performers (Brian Bayer, James Boland, Brittney Rae, Erik Koconis, and Audra Handschke) watch the first five minutes of a movie, then improvise the rest!

Hang onto your hats, because this month’s theme is: ACTION! It might be a billion-dollar Hollywood blockbuster, cult cinema favorite, or bargain-bin trash, but who knows what it will become after just five minutes of exposition?

You'll also see a collection of sketch comedy scenes from the DEMOCRATIC SKETCH COLLECTIVE (Nick Firer, Crysta Noel, Josh Randall, Justin Seagren, and Malorie Shallcross, directed by Tess Rutkowski).

It all takes place at Urban Harvest Brewing Company, where they brew hand-crafted ales and lagers in small batches several times a week. This creates a versatile line-up of beers to choose from, as well as adventurous seasonal and specialty brews.

Enjoy a pint or two before, during and after the show!
