Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv comedy theater The Second City returns to the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando October 1-2, 2021, with their Remix show.
The Second City has been the world’s first name in laughter for over 60 years. This new show will feature a mash-up of the group’s greatest hits made famous by comedians like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more, in addition to brand-new material and the troupe’s signature improvisation.
A sensory-friendly afternoon matinee performance will also be available on Saturday, October 2, with slightly altered sound and light cues in a relaxed environment. Dr. Phillips Center has earned its Certified Autism Center designation from the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards in 2020.
Tickets for the shows start at $42.25/person, and are available at DrPhillipsCenter.org, via Ticketmaster, or at the venue’s box office starting July 30, 2021 at 10am ET.
Shows are at 7:30pm nightly, plus the sensory-friendly show at 2pm on October 2.
In addition to their improv shows, The Second City will host a week-long educational residency at the AdventHealth School of the Arts, generously supported by Dr. Phillips Center founding donors Kathie and Bill Hohns.
For advanced improvisations, The Second City improvisers will work with 20+ high school and college-age students on scenic improvisation with an emphasis on connection and relationship. The workshop will conclude with a final performance featured during the evening weekend shows.
In the improv class for students on the autism spectrum, teen and adult participants throughout Central Florida will take part in a workshop with a focus on ensemble and team building to help explore different relationship and social cues.
