Burpee’s Seedy Theatrical Company is coming to Cornservatory for ONE NIGHT ONLY!
Burpee’s Seedy Theatrical Company is an improvisational comedy troupe at Denison University in Granville, OH. Founded in 1979 as an offshoot of a theatre class taught by Denison professor Kevin Hoggard, Burpee’s is the nation’s oldest collegiate improv group.
Burpee’s has seen over 150 Denison students fill its ranks, most notably Golden Globe winning actor Steve Carell. Said Carell in an interview with Denison Magazine: “Burpee’s was my first taste of being in a repertory company. It was so much fun, so exciting. It taught me discipline and a work ethic… Burpee’s was a deciding factor in committing to acting. I did a lot of theater in college, but I didn’t consider it as a profession.” Other Burpee alums have gone on to acting and improvisational careers across the U.S.
