KATC’s Kendria LaFleur is LIVE this morning in Lafayette with local improv comedy troupe, Silverbacks Improv Theatre. 

The troupe will feature improv from around Acadiana in their new format show "SuperCollider." The troupe will feature several different improv groups in Lafayette each month during their SuperCollider shows. The hope of the new format is to foster support and a growth of troupes and talent in the area. 

The show, which will be held on May 18, will include a regular Silverbacks performance with a one-act play and feature short sets from improv troupes from around the area. 

Friday’s show will feature the improv troupes, The Family Dinner a troupe out of Baton Rouge and Rag Tag, an all-girls troupe made up of the women of Silverbacks Improv Theatre. 

The event will be held at the Omni Theater in Lafayette at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10 and available at the door of the theater.

The improv troupe recently moved into the Omni Center in Downtown Lafayette. The troupe and Omni director Chad Lege say that Downtown’s newest theater venue has several features including a bar, new bathrooms and local art that guests can take time to peruse.
