"Impro has been a huge hit with our audiences for four summers and counting, and we are determined to have them back at OSF for a longer residency."
– Bill Rauch, Artistic Director, Oregon Shakespeare Festival

It is my pleasure to continue to offer a home at The Playhouse to Impro Theatre, based on my admiration for their work, their collaborative spirit, and the theatrical diversity that they bring to our building."
– Sheldon Epps, Artistic Director, Pasadena Playhouse
"Studying improvisation provides a metaphor in which you can learn how to be more human and stretch the limits of the self. Impro Theatre provides the highest quality training I know to experience this life affirming work. I highly recommend this intensive."
– Patricia Ryan Madson, Stanford Emerita,
Author of Improv Wisdom
"These guys are really wonderful! They work without a net every night. They’re very brave and very good."
– Garry Marshall, comedy legend
"The future of the art of improvisation is being developed and practiced at Impro. Attend this intensive to change the way your approach as a performer. You will learn how to deepen narrative and relationship, practice detailed space work, and understand that where your head is at matters. Experienced, passionate teachers lead the way. "
- Previous Summer Intensive Student
“The Impro Theatre School is one of the most invigorating and inspiring training grounds for acting that I know.”
- Daniel Blinkoff, MFA, Yale School of Drama
"I don't think I have ever experienced improv like this before. I am on an improv tour in the US and this was by far the best intensive I've ever had. The instructors were very generous and gave attention to every student. This is a no miss for any improviser out there in the world who would like to step up their improv journey. The musical improv sessions were wonderful too! I would totally sign up for this again and again"
- Naser Al Sughaiyer improviser
