Made Up Theatre

Using audience suggestions as a creative springboard, Made Up Theatre’s quartet of resident performers conjures chortles with fully improvised scenes, games, and musical numbers every Saturday night. Classes grant guests of varying performance backgrounds an opportunity to sample the art of improv before climbing through three ranks of classes that emphasize quick responses and structuring longer-form scenes. Made Up Theatre also totes its trick bag to the corporate world with team-building seminars that draw upon improv’s communicative foundation to improve group interactions and send stress off to take up residence in rant-fueled standup comics.

Customer Reviews

I had been to a Made Up Theatre show and loved it, so I took a chance that the class would be fun too. Four classes to go, but so far A+. Ben, the instructor, did a nice of getting us warmed up, and several of my classmates are hilarious and clever. Even the folks who do not seem like natural performers were creative and funny, and I'd give a good amount of credit to Ben and the warm-up exercises for loosening everyone up.
