    Have you ever watched improv on Whose Line Is It Anyway or gone to the Second City in Chicago and thought, "Hey! I want to do that!" but didn't think you could? Guess what? YOU CAN!!!

    Join us for a FREE improv workshop where you'll get some easy-to-learn, low-pressure instruction on improvisation with people at the same level. Intro students are invited to stick around for the Improv Jam afterward where they get to play in a safe, fun environment with veterans of the improv community. The workshop is a great way to meet people, have fun and discover that you have what it takes to be an improviser. Best of all, it’s free!

    Did you think improv was just about Wayne Brady drinking the Irish drinking song while Drew Carry hits the buzzer constantly? It's NOT! Come see some fun, comedic, unscripted theatre performed between teams consisting of actors form the local community theatre scene and local improvisers. All the world's a stage - it's time to prove it!

    IT’S BACK-TO-SCHOOL EVERYBODY! It’s the end of summer and we all now return the early mornings, the rush to get the kids ready for school, the writing of lesson plans, and the pure pandemonium that is education! Well, we now provide COMIC RELIEF to those who need it most – the adults!

    This show will feature acts with an education slant to them. As a token of our appreciation, educators get a DISCOUNT on admission to show our appreciation for everything you do! Get ready to laugh (and cry) when you see what happens when no child gets left behind!
