Purple Jam is part of Theatre 99’s popular Laugh for a Lincoln series and will be making its first appearance at the Charleston Comedy Festival this year. The collaborative ensemble is jammed together from Theatre 99’s 40 company members — the red and blue teams — to make purple (get it?). Each Purple Jam session is made up of eight different members from the company, adding to the excitement for both the audience and T99. The group will take one suggestion from the audience and craft an entire show from that suggestion.
