Comedy improvisation through joyful discovery, high stakes, and emotional truth.
In the heart of Los Feliz Village, Hollywood, California

Impro Studio was created by Impro Theatre to establish a performance space where the Impro Main Company, students, and community-at-large could foster the growth of narrative improv in an intimate blackbox setting.

Programming includes Main Company repertory, Impro Studio Presents, Impro Lab, LA Theatresports, and a carefully curated selection of guest artists. Since 1988, Impro Theatre has brought innovative unscripted theater to Los Angeles and the world.

OUR PROGRAMMING

Main Company
IMPRO THEATRE MAIN COMPANY

The Los Angeles Times calls Impro's Main Company, “Amazing! One of the funniest evenings in town. The troupe spins an entire play into comedy gold right before your eyes.” The Main Company creates completely improvised, full-length plays in the styles of the world’s greatest writers. With no pre-planning or prepared scenarios, the performers combine verbal dexterity and robust physicality to bring character and plot to life in an instant, making each Impro Theatre show unique and unlike any other theatrical experience. The Impro Studio serves as a laboratory where the Main Company can explore and introduce new work. “Twilight Zone UnScripted: Abridged,” an hour-long version of the Main Company’s show, performs every Thursday night at Impro Studio.

Impro Lab
IMPRO LAB

The Impro Lab is the premiere performance ensemble of the Impro Theatre School, directed by Main Company members. Impro Lab is comprised of advanced improvisers and experienced performers studying Impro Theatre’s narrative improv techniques, genre, character development, and emotional truth. Impro Lab performances may be based in genres the company performs or in new genres as decided by the faculty.
Impro Theatre Presents
IMPRO STUDIO PRESENTS

Fully-produced shows from within the Impro community and style, with a high standard of theatricality and talent. The Improvised Generation (in the style of Star Trek: TNG) is a flagship Impro Studio Presents production, as well as the popular festival series Nerd Night.

LA THEATRESPORTS

Before there was Impro Theatre, there was LA Theatresports. Founded by Main Company members in 1988, LATS is a standing tradition of Keith Johnstone’s beloved fast-paced competitive-improv show. Now, the show lives on within the Impro Theatre School, and the cast is a blend of Impro students/community and Main Company members.
Studio Guests
STUDIO GUESTS

Hand-selected productions not specifically developed at Impro, but who are sympatico in nature with Impro Studio’s theatricality, epic storytelling, and talent. Bearded Men West is a Studio Guest production with a permanent residency.
