Verizon Qwest is Marisol Chavez and Jose Gonzalez. Our goal each show is to do as many improvised scenes as possible in any given time slot. The chaos that results causes the scenes to merge and overlap into a show that is unique and high energy. 

WE BOUGHT A ‘ZOO (Improv) 

Formed in the heart of battle, Evan Fairbanks and Cody Walker were fast friends who shared a love of music. Particularly, of the kazoo variety. They knew they needed to change the course of history and so the duo set out to buy a kazoo. After minutes of searching, they bought the 'zoo at a party supply store. And thus began... We Bought a 'zoo. Evan picked up the other 'zoo from a garden gnome who granted him one wish. Now Evan and Cody roam the lands, Kazoos in hand ready to perform long form improv in all itss forms especially as three time champions of the Torch Theatre's CageMatch Series.
