Remote Control Freak
Skip to the best part!
10 pm, Sept. 28 - Nov. 16, 2019
It’s movie night in mom’s basement. You and your friends grab some popcorn, pop in a DVD, and settle down to watch an all-time favorite. You laugh, you gasp, you even get a little misty. The only thing is, this movie has never been shot. It’s being made up on the spot. Also, you only have an hour, so you’ll be needing that remote. Come join us Saturday nights for hilarious, completely improvised movies that move at a frantic pace.
Saturdays at 10 p.m., Sept. 28 – Nov. 16
Directed by David Madison Stellar

Bela is a San Francisco Bay Area based improviser. His love of improv started in the mid-1990s, when he began studying at BATS Improv and taking private classes from Diane Rachel and Carol Hazenfield. Subsequently, Bela performed in groups at BATS, Made Up Theatre, and Pear Theatre. In recent years, he has played with local indie troupes Charmers Market, All That Jazz, The Internet: Live, and Live Clickbait.

At Un-Scripted, Bela was a cast member in Intimacy Issues, Super Scene, Adventure Quest, and Oregon Trials – and he’s super excited to be a part of Remote Control Freak!
Bonnie Kate Wolf is a Bay Area native who recently moved home from London. She's been doing improv since middle school, and likes to think she's improved. At Un-Scripted Theater Company, she guested in Let It Snow 2018, In Case You Missed It, Oregon Trials, Mixtape, World Premiere, and Remote Control Freak, with Holly Jolly coming up this winter. She performed with Un-Scripted at the West Coast Musical Improv Festival 2019. She performs regularly with Well Endowed, a local improv troupe, and trained at BATS Improv. Professionally, Bonnie Kate is a brand designer at OpenTable. For fun, she knits sweaters, sings a cappella, and plays with her puppy. She plays ukulele because guitars are too big for her hands.
Charlie Stellar has been improvising and creating in both music and dance for basically her whole life, yet it has taken years of considerable encouragement from her husband to finally start improvising with words. Now that it’s happened, she loves it! She performs with the improv troupe Well Endowed. This is her fourth show with Un-Scripted Theater Company and she is so excited to be part of this awesome cast.
When she is not playing make believe you can find her creating dance films, spoiling their pets and napping.
This is Erica’s second show with Un-Scripted and she is thrilled to be a part of such a lovely ensemble. Erica trained at BATS and keeps her improv chops up to speed with the help of coach, aka, Tim Orr. Erica enjoys teaching donation-based improv with friend and duo-improv partner, Jared Polivka. When Erica isn’t therapizing or training for a marathon; she enjoys hardcore lounging, snacking, and snowboarding.
Derek Yee took his first improv class in the fall of 2007 and has been at it ever since--improv, that is, not the class. During this time he’s had the pleasure of performing with BATS Improv, Big City Improv, Secret Improv Society, the Streetlight People, Spontaneous Combustion, and other Bay Area groups. He also created The Five Deadly Improvisers, who performed improvised kung fu movies in festivals around the nation.
