Improv group Tweaking Reality makes its Sequim debut as part of the First Friday Art Walk, Aug. 1.

Olympic Theatre Arts, 414 N. Sequim Ave., hosts Dave McInnes, Danny Willis, Pamela Ziemann and Olivia Shea, to continue the series “An Unusual Evening in Sequim.”

“Improvisation is about thinking on the spot, taking the situation and running with it, saying yes to whatever comes your way,” McInnes said. “It is the ultimate experience of being in the moment, which really is what acting is all about.”

The theater began its free admission “An Unusual Evening in Sequim” in April with its tribute to Shakespeare as a way to bring performing arts to First Friday Art Walk.

Organizers hope art walk participants make the theater their last stop with the show beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Gathering Hall.

Elaine Caldwell, a board of trustee theater board member, said with the series they’ve been able to bring a new and different view of theater to their audience.

“We’re really excited to add improvisational theater to our menu of theater treats,” she said. “It’s fun and entertaining, a perfect end to a First Friday evening.”

While the event is free, wine is sold by the glass.

For more information, contact the theater at 683-7326, which is open from 1-5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
