Improv Games in Washington Square Park

Check out the cool stuff at ImprovInThePark.com :). 

Summer is here and our meetups are back outdoors!! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate, however, if it is raining within one hour of the meetup or if the temperature drops below 65 degrees, we will move the meetup to a different date.

We will be in the lawn area on the west side of Washington Square Park (near Washington Place and Washington Square West, between Waverly Pl. and W. 4th St.). If you arrive on time, you'll see me holding up an Improv in the Park sign. If you're late, look for one or more circles of people having a blast doing improv in the surrounding lawn area :). If you don't see us there, please look around the nearby lawn areas, as we may have to move if our spot is occupied.

There's no prior improv experience required, and if you prefer to just watch, you're welcome to join as well!

I'll bring my box of warm ups and games, but please feel free to bring ideas on your favorite exercises as well!

By attending this event, you agree to the terms and conditions outlined on our About page.

Want to Support Our Meetup?

My goal is to keep the standard Improv in the Park meetups forever free. If you'd like to voluntarily support our community, you can do so in any of the following ways:

Leverage your skills! Are you a rock star graphic designer? We could use some awesome images for our page (e.g., for the banner at the top, our icon, etc.)! Do you know how to work an SLR or a video camera? We love seeing photos and videos of our meetups! Do you know a thing or two about improv? Lead us in some of the exercises! The possibilities are endless! :) Huge thanks to all those of you who are already giving us the gift of your time and talent on an ongoing basis!

Leverage your network! Know someone who can hook us up with a free performance space? Send them our way! Got friends who love improv? Tell them about our group! Is your buddy an excellent improviser and/or coach? Ask them to make a guest appearance at one of our events!

Leverage your voice! Love our events? Write a review on Yelp! You can also leave a review on our Facebook Page or our Meetup page for other prospective members to see!

Leverage your job! Would your (or a friend's) office benefit from a fun, improv-based team building activity? Message me with the referral and you'll get a 10% commission on any resulting sales! Do you want to help cover our expenses (e.g., organizer dues, which I've been paying out of pocket, a better sign that doesn't blow away with the slightest breeze, a normal container for our games, instead of my recycled microwave popcorn box, etc.)? Send a donation via PayPal to [masked] (no amount is too small)! 

Thank you, and I'm excited to see you at this event!
