February

6 Public performance, The Love Show, The ArtsCenter, Carrboro (8 pm). Buy tickets!

It’s time again to ride the Love Rollercoaster with Transactors, the longest-running improv theater in the South. The Love Show, the company’s annual improvised look at the ups and downs of romantic love, is Feb. 6 at The ArtsCenter.

The two-act show will be made up of several episodes about characters looking for love. Will they find the love of their lives, have their hearts crunched, or experience something in between? Featuring live music, the performance is spontaneous, unscripted, and based on audience suggestions.

“Nothing brings us greater joy—or sorrow—than romantic love,” says director Greg Hohn. “The stakes are so high and that makes for rich scenes and lots of comedic potential. Improvisers love playing situations that are fraught with risk.”

The cast for The Love Show includes Anoo Brod, Hohn, Juliet Kaplan, Bart Hubbard, Steve Scott, and Jane Allen Wilson. Glenn Mehrbach is the piano accompanist and Jenn Evans handles lights and sound.

27 Public performance, Transactors Improv: For Families!, Kaboom Art Gallery, 139B W. Main St., Garner (6 pm). Suggested donations: $10 adults, $8 seniors, $6 children/students.

Jump for joy! Take a flying leap. Hop to it. Jump in a lake. It's the Leap Day show--we got a two-day jump on it--and our show is all about jumping, flying and falling! Suitable for ages 4 and up, this show is based on audience suggestions and volunteer participation.

"The hour seemed to fly by because it was such a laid back, silly time. There were kids and adults of all ages there, and I heard everyone laughing, so it's a great event..."
