Shahrazad Improv, which frequently performs at Wine Up and the Pineville Dinner Theater, seek to entertain the Charlotte community with the art of improvisational acting and comedy. In the process, they use the money they earn to help those in need—locally, and around the world, and have raised over $5,000 to date.
In addition to improvisation, several of the cast members are active in Charlotte’s local film scene. Erin Fede recently won a trip to the Sundance Film Festival after her film ¡Perfecto! was voted into the top spot of Project Direct. Chris Crutchfield’s short film FAIT is currently a finalist in the Doorpost Project.
