Using only suggestions provided by the audience, Panic Squad leaps into action, creating scenes right out of thin air.

“Our annual comedy improv show is always a crowd-pleaser,” says Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7 Theatre’s executive/artistic director.

“What’s unique about The Panic Squad show here at Gallery 7 Theatre, besides being super-clean, is that they bring a few more performers than their usual show, and they premiere new games that have never before been seen.”
