“HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis” is coming to Missouri S&T’s Leach Theatre in May.

The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 5, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located on the Missouri S&T campus at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla. Tickets for the general public are $55 for adults and $50 for students and youth under 18. Missouri S&T students will have several opportunities to buy discounted tickets to the show.

The 90-minute show begins with hypnotist Asad Mecci inviting 20 volunteers on stage to be hypnotized. Those who are most receptive to hypnosis will join Colin Mochrie of “Whose Line is it, Anyway?” to improvise the rest of the show while hypnotized with help from audience suggestions.
