From Austin Improv Community Wiki

Dusk (full name: Dusk: Improvised Tween Erotica) was a longform narrative improv show produced by Gnap! Theater Projects.

It was an improvised take on The Twilight Saga.


The show included many of the tropes associated with the novels, including a werewolf/vampire/human love triangle, a diary voiceover, and some sort of vampire sporting event.

Season 1 was based on Twilight, and focused on the human and vampire meeting and falling in love.

Season 2 was based on the books New Moon and Eclipse, and focused on the love triangle and werewolves.


The show had two mainstage runs at Salvage Vanguard Theater, which the cast and crew refer to as "seasons". Season 1 was Fridays and Saturdays from 10/23/09 to 11/21/09. Season 2 was Fridays and Saturdays from 10/22/10 to 11/20/10. They also did three festival appearances: the Chicago Improv Festival from 4/23/10-4/24/10; New York City at the Tank Theater on 7/9/10; and Atlanta in 2011. They ran fundraiser shows for the Chicago trip on 4/9/10 and 4/16/10 and for the New York trip on 6/25/10 and 7/2/10 (the fundraiser shows were held at Salvage Vanguard Theater).

The marketing tagline for season 1 was "True love waits... forever."

The marketing tagline for season 2 was "Forever is for serious."
