We like to have loads of fun here, but don't let the "improv" part of our name fool you....
Our staff are professional performers and educators on stage and screen...in improvisation, musical theater, television, fashion and film.
The Adult and Youth performing arts training program is all-inclusive and thorough in methodology, formation and curricula catapulting its students to the highest levels of development.
Adult improv shows and dozens of youth productions are performed throughout the year immersing actors in opportunities which include focused dramatic training and musical theatre.
Each adult or young actor is given personal attention from their first acting class, warm up, through the audition process and final performances.
Improv Playhouse’s core philosophy is to educate, entertain and elevate audiences and students of all ages, demographics and locations; as well as to bring instruction and guidance to emerging actors, theatrical ensembles and improvisational artists. This helps to build our intentional community of passionate young and adult performers into life-long patrons of the arts...
