The Boston Symphony of Spontaneity (emphasis on the "phony" part) proudly presents the 5th Annual Paper Hats Marching Band Parade!
Of course, this is only our first year- but no one else has to know that. A little before 1pm on the first truly gorgeous Saturday of the year improveratti met at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial in Boston Common to make paper hats and receive further instructions. Like all our stunts we did not advise anyone in advance what we were going to do.
RECAP: On Tuesday, April 1st, 2008 nearly 20 improveratti showed up at 5:15pm in Harvard Square under the threat of rain with homemade signs and the opinion people should keep their opinions to themselves. In our April Fool's performance we would be portraying the radical members of a fake political action committee called Citizens Against Protests, Rallies, & Expression; That's C.A.P.E.R. for short. Get it?! Caper!
On 3/29/08 at 4:45pm (we also did this 1 year later with 100 members- pictures from both are included below) nearly 50 improveratti showed up with suitcases at a green near South Station- a green we lovingly refer to as Cigarette Grass Park due to the number of cigarette butts overtaking the number of blades of grass.
