Free Family Improv Mixer

The Mixer is a free, facilitated improv comedy jam intended to introduce the joy of improv to new people and help existing improvisers make new connections.

The Mixer is open to the entire community: total newbies, current students, free agents, existing troupes looking for new members, coaches, or anyone who wants a free workout. At the beginning, any scouts and coaches will let the group know what they are looking for. Then an instructor will lead an improv warmup where everyone will get to know each other and get comfortable. Then we will be divided into groups for open scenework. It’s free, it’s fun, and you just might find the people to for your next show, troupe or dinner party.

This month’s theme is: Family!

So bring your kiddoes if you got ‘em, and get ready try new and fun things with your loved ones and other families too! It’s too much fun to miss!
