Folks looking to catch a good laugh in St. Albans should turn up for the last performance of a local improv group for 2013.

The No Pants Players, an improv comedy troupe in the state, will have its last show of the 2013 season Saturday, Dec. 7.

The group's annual "Joytacular" will be raising money for the American Heart Association for the fourth year in a row. The event will take place at the Alban Arts Center (65 Olde Main) in St. Albans.

Holiday-themed celebrations will be scheduled to kick-off at 6:30 p.m. and will be for children of all ages.

The No Pants Players will take the stage at 7 p.m. with their "Whose Line is it Anyway" style improv comedy that will "have folks laughing all the way through the evening," organizers said.

The night will also have raffle drawings for gifts with proceeds from all of the sales going to the AHA. Although the No Pants Players will perform, special guest Stevie Brigode will also be in attendance.

Tickets for the show are $10 for children, $12 for adults.
