Schenectady Soup Stroll Free Sampler Show!!!

A Free All-Ages Show During the Soup Show

Doors Open @ 1:30 pm, Show Starts @ 2:00pm

The Mop and Bucket Company, the Capital Region's favorite improvisers, is serving up laughs for the whole family during the Schenectady Soup Stroll!

Come in, relax and warm up with some improvised comedy made up entirely on the spot from your suggestions, so no two shows are alike! Besides inspiring the show, audience members will also get a chance to come onstage and be a part of the action! Never fear, we don't make fun or roast you. Audience participants are guaranteed to return to their seats 100% cooler than they left them.

A great way garnish your day of delicious soups here in Downtown Schenectady! 


Will we get picked on by the comedians?

Absolutely not. Improv is about getting inspiration from the audience to help us invent scenes and songs on the spot. So don't you fret, nobody is ever forced to volunteer. You can be as active a participant or as passive an observer as you like. We celebrate your contribution to the show because you are part of it. Any volunteers we ask to join us onstage we GUARANTEE will be 110% cooler than they were when they were in their seat.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There are no minimum age requirements for attendees. Our performances are improvised so the content is largely determined by the audience and the suggestions you give. With our family-oriented shows, provided the audience keeps others in attendance in mind, our performers have no problem creating a fun, entertaining show for parents and kids alike.

Do you have a late policy for seating?

Yes. Our shows begin promptly. If a performance is sold out, unused tickets will be released to the waitlist beginning at five minutes to curtain. So on busy nights, please arrive early so that your ticket is not re-sold. There are no refunds within 24 hours of show time. Exchanges for a comparable performance can only be made up to two hours prior to a given performance.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
