Salsation Theatre Company, NFP, comedy with a LATIN flavor, presents "Los Improviachis" - a musical improv comedy show. Meet their diverse and eclectic cast of Improviachis as they sing, dance, and improvise their way into your "carazon". Drawing from traditional Mexican mariachi traditions while infusing modern American musical conventions, Los Improviachis bring "las jajas" to every venue they encounter.
The show itself is audience interactive and good natured fun. The ensemble is a self-contained musical outfit featuring traditional Mariachi instrumentation along with some non-traditional instruments.
Members of Los Improviachis have performed/trained at various Chicago institutions such as The Second City, iO Chicago, The Annoyance Theatre, and ComedySportz. Their ethnic backgrounds include Mexican, Puerto Rican, Italian, Irish, and Spanish - just as mariachis are global, they are too!
Graduates of the Second City Training Center Music Improv Program, 2016 Chicago Musical Improv Festival. Featuring Taylor Badri Dariarow, Katie Cravens, Nathan Ebenroth, KC Horne, Todd Page, and Michael Shutack, and music direction from Erin Elisabeth Smith.
