Allen Voigt – Dungeon Master
Allen is a huge nerd. He probably is a druid of Cuthulu or some other cult. If you see him in public without dice, it’s not him. Likely a Doppleganger or magic user casting Disguise Self. Whatever, he rolls the dice for us and tells us our fate, maybe he’s a Prophet. Who knows? …Allen does.
Jack Barrett – Accompanist
Bradley Machov – Technical Director
Bradley has been an improvisor and theater tech for over five years. A Level 20 Sorcerer behind the buttons, he was born in serene Golden Valley, but raised in the mysterious dark world from which all booth techs emerge, reentering the world of mortals like a drow from the Underdark — but even more sinister.
FRINGE SHOW RECOMMENDATIONS
We can’t begin to even say how much we love this show. Imaginative, fun and well done. Hit the Lights Theater Company really hits it out of the park with this. Go to this, you are sure to be entertained.
We can’t say enough how great Blackout is. They have been and continue to do great things for the improv and comedy community in the Twin Cities. This is a show you won’t want to miss!
