Local Improvisers support Theatre Action Project


It’s pretty cool when folks decide to be generous just because they want to, not because they have to. Our friends at the Hideout are hosting an incredible 40-hour marathon of improv this weekend and they are donating 10% of the proceeds to TAP. We are so honored that they chose us and really impressed by the efforts.

Please go see some of these hilarious and highly entertaining shows. Many previous and current TAP teachers are in the local and thriving Improv community. TAP and Improvisers in Austn are like total BFF’s.
