The Pan Theater is an East Bay improv theater and acting school that hosts gut-busting shows from teams culled from its professional training center. Performers entreat audiences for the evening’s theme during shows on Friday and Saturday nights, inciting laugh riots with unscripted scenes that will never be seen again.
The theater's improv acting classes cycle through intense scene work and the emotion-based exercises of Sanford Meisner, a revered acting instructor and forgettable squash player. Four times a year, a free sample improv class shepherds students through the basics of improv with introductory games including Sound Ball and Zip Zap Zop.
