Doors open 30 minutes before each performance, so arrive early to get a good seat.

Live Improv Comedy Show with Now Are the Foxes
Saturday, Oct. 8
The Warehouse Performing Arts Center, 9216 Westmoreland Rd.
This Saturday, OTC is in for a real treat when the regionally acclaimed improv comedy group, Now Are the Foxes, performs at the Warehouse. Snorts and tears are acceptable, even expected, from audience members at the Foxes’ shows, so come prepared. After all, someone in the room should be! More info.
When asked what sets Now Are the Foxes apart from any other touring group, founder Cale Evans said:
“It takes more than just being a ‘funny person’ to be in Now Are the Foxes. A “Fox” is real, cares about their art and their community, and is committed to the healing power of laughter. And loves fart jokes.”
We sat down with the Foxes to learn more about this unique group. Read our interview in the Artist Spotlight section.
