But sometimes the people who could benefit most from learning to improvise are the least able to afford it, and to that end, Bovine is hosting its second annual 12-Hour Improv-a-thon to benefit the improv school’s scholarship fund. A mixed cast of experienced Bovine instructors and past graduates will improvise continuously in what Maes calls a “celebration of the art form” today from noon until midnight.
Check in at Bovine Metropolis, 1527 Champa Street, whenever you like and for as long as you like during the twelve-hour stretch, and pay what you can to watch the improvisors at work; all proceeds benefit the assistance fund. Bovine earned nearly $8,000 for the fund last year and hopes to hit a $10,000 goal this time around. For details, go to bovinemetropolis.com.
