"How did they come up with that?" " with 'yes, and.'"
This group is for those who are interested in learning, practicing, or just experiencing improvisational theater -- the art of creating live stories without any script. Particularly, if you love to laugh, love to play, and deeply enjoy other people, you're going to have a good time here. All skill levels are accepted -- everyone from long time performers, to improv newbies, to those who just saw "Whose Line is it Anyway?" on television one day and had a chuckle.
"Improv is the intersection of Love and Fear"
This group is intended to foster an improv community in which we can enjoy once-in-a-lifetime theatrical experiences, hone our improv skills, and appreciate the hilarity that ensues when you skydive without a parachute. At our meetings, we'll work on developing skills in all kinds of improv, with a focus on a particular skill area each week, and we should have a lot of fun doing it.
If you're scared of getting on stage, but love improv, there's a place for you too! We love to have audience members -- especially if you have an awesome laugh :)
At this meeting we'll be going over a few *basic* improv techniques, and playing improv games of all kinds! All experience levels welcomed!
You won't need to bring anything other than:
- comfortable clothes
- an open mind
- an excitement for improv
(but if you'd really like to, we could also use some snacks or drinks :)
No experience? --> No problem!
Just want to see what it's all about? --> Be an audience member!
Want to perform? --> The stage is yours!

Hope to see you there! 😄🌈
