LOS ANGELES -- A performance of fully-scripted comedy, written and performed by L.A. Connection cast members, will open Dec. 11 at the Connection's comedy theatre in Sherman Oaks and will run every Friday evening at 8 PM through Feb. 26, 1999.
Unnatural Selection has been culled from six months of Monday night experiments at the Connection. The best of the skits tested during that period have been assembled by director Tom Mackendrick and will be performed by an 18-person cast.

The other shows presently running in repertory at the Connection include Thursday Night Live, Attack of the Killer Connection, L.A. Connection's Spike, Z-Z-Zat's Improv, L.A. Connection's 21 and Legal, Comedy Improv for Kids, Rock'n Roll Rookies and Loose Connections.
The troupe's New Year's Eve celebrations (one at 8 PM, the other at 10 PM) will feature performers from the Mad Movies Veteran All-Stars, improv, sketches and prizes.
The theatre is at 13442 Ventura Blvd. Call (818) 784-1868 for tickets and information. -- By Willard Manus
