Stage 2 Improv…









But for kids!!!!

He’s been working with the Co-Directors,

Mike & Judith Santos

Practicing and video-taping for their shows!!

Check it out!!

And also check out their article in the Oct. issue of

Parent-Child Magazine!!!



“Kids Prov 123© 

is a children’s comedy improv television series

performed in front of live studio audiences.

Skits, songs and games are driven by suggestions from in-studio

and on-line (virtual) audiences.

 The show format includes guest performers,

contests between the performers,

and opportunities for on-line submissions via

YouTube and other social media platforms

which will be judged

with winners being invited to become in-studio audience for future episodes.

Improv may take the form of acting, dancing, singing,

playing musical instruments, creating artwork, miming, poetry, and more.

Improv is sometimes referred to as “on-the-spot”,


and “on-the-fly” performing.

It is always unrehearsed.

Kids Prov 123© performers will be spontaneously reacting

to the moment

and responding to their immediate environment

and their inner feelings.

In addition to the entertainment value,

Kids Prov 123©

has strong educational value

for teaching such concepts as multi-lateral and creative thinking,

social skill building,

extemporaneous speaking,

communications and listening skills,

body language,

acting quickly,

team building,

decision making

and non-structured thinking.”

This was my last time to see Stage 2 Improv…

Tonight’s their last show!

Boo Hoo!

So I took their photo to remember them by:

Thursday, July 25th’s Cast of

Stage 2 Improv,


(Back row, left to right):  Rosie Spinosa, Steven Johnson

(Front row, left to right):  Casey Debrowski (my son!), Judith Gangi Santos, Michael Santos,

Synthia DuBose, Kate Ebaugh, Christy McLaughlin (music coordinator)

The shows were great!

Perfectly funny!!

“Stage 2 Improv has been so widely popular…

It’s a Naples-based improvisational theatre group


featuring scenes, games and songs


that are created right before your very eyes!


If you liked the television show Who’s Line is it Anyway?


and the improv troop The Second City,


you’ll love this!


The actors utilize information given by the audience to build the show!


Every scene and game is driven by suggestions from the audience.


Some games may even feature audience participation!


You never know what an evening will bring,


which makes each show different from the next.”

The cast is hilarious!

Keep checking their web-site for future craziness dates!!


“The Naples Players

continues to provide respite from the summer doldrums here in steamy Naples….

For 15 dollars you can go downtown

and see a group of personable,

quick-witted young (or at least young-ish)

performers play the improv game…

I’m rather in awe of the quickness on display here…

So go,

lighten up,

get out of your air-conditioned cave,

venture to Fifth Avenue South

and have some goofy fun.”

For the entire review in Collier Citizen, go to:


Even good things must come to an end!

Though I’m praying they’ll come to teach our drama team…

All their funny antics!!

“To all perfection I see a limit,   

but Your commands are boundless.”

My Son’s Funny Face Is In The Paper!!

Wits, brains, and comic timing!!


They know how to get a laugh!!!

 WHAT:  90 minute, fast-paced show with local actor/comedians in silly games, skits and nonsense riddles.

SOMETHING ELSE:  Don’t be shy, don’t suggest boring things, and always say the first thing that comes to your mind.”


“Co-Director, Mike Santos carries a large portion of the show;

his infectious energy feels like a live wire

let loose into his fellow cast members and the crowd.

Whether emceeing the silly skits

or trying to guess

how you speed-walk

with otters as shoes,

he makes the show.”

A sample question to the audience:

“What do you like to do?”



“Walk on the beach?”

Go ahead…

Try to make a zany skit out of that!

But, the cast can do it!!!

“These are the dangers of audience participation.

Especially in Southwest Florida.”





 “We are proud of our show

and what we have accomplished so far,”

Mr. Santos says.

“We’re grateful and excited for the continued support of the community.”




Proverbs 15:30

“A cheerful look brings joy to the heart,

and good news gives health to the bones.”
