Yuba-Sutter Improv Club Show/ IMPROVIVOR (Season 1)

What happens when you mix improvised theater games with early 2000’s reality TV? You get a new and completely unique form of entertainment known as IMPROVIVOR.

On Friday, March 31, members of the Yuba-Sutter Improv Club (YSIC) will battle it out for a chance to win your vote and become this year’s first improvising champion!

IMPROVIVOR is a Survivor themed improv games show, based on audience suggestions. 

Two teams will go head to head in a series of challenge rounds with opportunities to win immunity, gain advantages, and vote each other “off.” Who will be the last man left standing…er laughing? Come find out at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 31, at the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts in Yuba City. 

The Sutter Theater Center is located at 754 Plumas Street. Tickets cost $15 per person and can be purchased online at tinyurl.com/3zehsr82. This show is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18. 

YSIC is a free program powered by Yuba Sutter Arts & Culture. Practices are open to anyone over the age of 18 with meetings occurring every Tuesday night starting at 6:30 p.m. These practices take place inside the Lee Burrows Center for the Arts at 630 E St. in Marysville.
In addition to offering free training in improvised theater, YSIC has become a unique social spot for a diverse group of local creatives. 

Founded this past summer by Shamaya Sutton and Tyler Zepp, YSIC just recently welcomed Richard Fifield as another lead instructor. Richard, more colloquially known as “Rich,” will be making his Yuba-Sutter debut on March 31 as host of the season one premiere of IMPROVIVOR.

Rich’s improv background stems from three years participating with San Jose ComedySportz, rising up through the classes and performing.

“Growing up in the Bay Area my family would often go to ComedySportz Improv shows and have a great time yelling suggestions and laughing,” said Rich. “What I love about Improv is seeing how it has helped others with self-confidence, public speaking, networking, and even their love life.”

Rich is a corporate finance professional who can often be found giving very serious presentations and public speaking as part of his job. Improv gives Rich a fantastic creative outlet to unwind and perform funny voices while remaining ready for anything. Rich is extremely excited to share his skills and help grow other Improvisors with the Yuba-Sutter Improv Club.
