What we're about

People show up for several reasons:
• Play Improv games for the first time
• Gain Improv experience in a low-key environment
• Expand your acting and/or comedy interests
• Improve your communication skills via an unusual but effective approach
People come back for the cast of characters and the games.  For two hours on a Saturday afternoon, we laugh a lot.  And people get out of it what they want.

This group was started in August of 2017 to meet a need in KC. It is a community group and FREE to all participants. The 6-18 attendees at each session will vary. Most have no Improv experience outside this group.  In each session, we learn by doing and from each other. 
If this sounds like you, then drop in and play a few games with us.  You'll know after one session whether this is a place that energizes you.

NERVOUS ABOUT TRYING IMPROV? I can tell you this much. After well over 100 of these sessions, a number of people have come in asking if they can just watch. However, in under 15 minutes of watching, every one of them are in the group participating in the Improv games. And, they usually remark at the end how fun it was afterall.
ONE MORE POINT: Thus far, it seems that ANYONE can play in our Improv games. All they test are how fast a person can come up with something to say and do "in the moment" of an Improv game. Makes no difference your age, gender, race, creed, etc. We are only after your Mind and what it can bring to the Improv Games we play.
