    Both love and improv are all about relationships. Two improvisers delve into what makes real relationships work through the lens of improv

    How can “Yes And” make your relationship better (or worse)? Can object work be a way to communicate with your partner? Can volunteering your theatre-adverse mate to participate in an improv show be a good move? Find out!
    If you’ve got a relationship question you’d like to hear us talk about, please DM Nelson Velazquez, the Improductions, LLC page, or email me at nelson@improductionsllc.com. All submitter information will be kept confidential.

    In place of the annual NIETF gala, we are hosting an online reception. Many of you often comment that your favorite part of the gala is getting to see everyone that you don’t get to all year through. We want to make that happen, just virtually this year instead of in person.
    BYOB, dress up in gala finery or casual it up in comfy couch attire, or even dress in costume, we just want to see you there!
    There’ll be some fun activities and time to talk and catch up with all your friends and theatre family. We’ll recognize some accomplishments and honor those we’ve lost this past year. It will truly be a time of community.
    It’ll all happen on Zoom so you’ll be able to attend from anywhere.
    Tickets are $10. When you purchase, you’ll see you can select from any of our member theatres or NIETF. Your $10 will go straight to the theatre you choose. Want to support several, you can buy multiple tickets. But one link is all you’ll need to access the event, no matter how many are participating from your location.
