PP beth ICEMAN

Zero Untitled’s Premature Punchline improv comedy troupe performed our 103rd production at Angel’s Italian Ice and Smores on July 22, 2016. The show was lead by co-director Beth Marie Cantu-Castillo and newcoming director Robert Trujillo. The cast involved were Julio Martinez, Michael Verderber, Beth Marie Cantu-Castillo, Andrea Lorin, and Robert Trujillo.

PrePunch opened the show with a classic game of Alphabet and began the set with Freeze Tag. The cast went on to play Dating Game and a brand new skit called “Pokemon Go Reviewed by Stace”, which was performed by Lorin. The one-woman piece was a comic review of the hot new app game. Following that was a couple of rounds of “What’s My Pitch?” and they ended the show with Quoteline.  – Robert Trujillo.

Following are successful Education classes in previous years (Mimes, Grace, etc), we introduced our two latest one-day class workshops focusing on global accents: “British Accents” and “Irish and Russian Accents” over a two day period.

On Monday July 18th, ZU Main Stage Director Katherine Orozco-Verderber and Michael Verderber team-taught a three-hour session on utilizing the British accent. Actors introduced themselves and created dialogue while practicing accents.  Afterwards, the actors watched film clips for mimicry and tongue-placement practice and performed in an improv game to test their newfound abilities.

On Tuesday, July 19th, both Verderbers team taught Irish and Russian accents. The class began with Michael Verderber teaching Irish accents, with a heavy focus on tongue placement. As before, the class used conversational dialogue and learned terminology to aid in the learning process. Katherine led the Russian class, also utilizing clips and language to assist. By class’s end, the class was split into two groups and were challenged to play improv games in the accent they felt weakest in.

“And Then There Were None…” production
