Theater: Upfront stages improv musical

The Upfront Theatre, 1208 Bay St., which has tackled many styles of improvised comedy over the past decade, from murder mysteries, space adventures, the old west to warm and fuzzy holiday formats, takes on the magical world of musicals at 9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday in July (and on Aug. 1, but no show on July 4).

Each night, the cast debuts a fully improvised musical with the plot, lyrics, music, choreography and comedy combined to make an epic production.

Advance tickets are available online for $10 at theupfront.com. Day-of-show tickets are $12 at the door. Doors open 45 minutes before show time. Details: 360-733-8855.
