If you have an idea for an improv or sketch comedy show you’d like to try, we’d love to hear more! Feature improv with theater, dance, visual art, storytelling, puppets, musicals – we’re open to your pitch.
Your show pitches can be submitted through the official form. Contact our Artistic Director, Jennifer Withers with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
