The Backline Cinematic Universe (BCU)- Coached by Taylor Grote, this movie form will feel more like a movie than at least some superhero movies.
Ron De Replay- Coached by Sam Bunnyfield, this team draws audience members into captivating stories with the La Ronde form.
Biscuits- Backline's longest running House team and they perform a fast-paced format called The Slacker (inspired by the cult classic film.) Always tasty, never flaky.
Zip-Zopera: The Improvised Hip-Hopera- This team freestyle raps a number of songs all tying into one storyline, inspired by the story of an audience member.
6 Non-Blondes- This improvised musical features a rock-star lineup with musical director Robyn Helwig returns as a Backline House team!
Fake Beef- This incredibly quick team of 6 perform 6 different scenes they bounce between, depending on how many people are currently on stage.
Quantum Chair- Have a seat in this dimension and enjoy this returning House team as they present a whole new universe to the audience.
Chicken Party- This group faces scary moments in every show in such a calm method you'd never call them chicken if it wasn't in their name.
The Tardy Boys- This team of guys are inspired by Nancy Drew as they search for the "hidden gold" of improv comedy.
