Get The Hook is a Vaudville term for when a look shepherd’s crook was used to yank performers offstage in the late 19th and early 20th Century. Parkway Playhouse’s newly formed teen improv troupe adopted the name because it sounded catchy and fun, as well as being an homage to the roots of live improv comedy.

At the performance, which is interactive, performers lead the audience through a series of games that lead to sketches and scenes that are made up on the spot by the performers. The results are nothing short of hilarious.
