Atlanta Improv Classes & Shows
the best for comedy, classes, and abrasiveness
Since 2008, we’ve called ourselves the Village Theatre because we’re from all walks of life (and “People from All Walks of Life Theatre” was not jazzy enough). We’re comedy veterans whose powers combine to form an amazing force, like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. If you are looking for information on our weekly Atlanta improv shows, classes, corporate workshops, or just a cheap date idea: this is the place.
We’re all up in the Old 4th Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, on the ground floor of the Pencil Factory lofts. Officially, that’s:
349 Decatur Street Southeast
Atlanta, GA 30312
We’re absurdly close to the King Memorial MARTA station, and we haz parking!
Call us at (404) 688-8858 with questions, praise, or inappropriate voicemails.
Comedy Shows & Tickets
Buy tickets online up to two hours before showtime, or you can pay with cash or a credit card at the door. Doors open at 7:30pm on the weekends. All tickets are general admission and your complete party must be inside the building before seating. Get there early! All unclaimed tickets are released and sold at 8:30pm!
Parking is free in one of our two parking decks at the Pencil Factory. Enter the deck off at the corner of Grant St. and Decatur St. (at the entrance of Intown Market). You can enter VT through the deck as well as from the street.
Every day, people make split-second decisions that affect their lives and, by doing so, improvise. Have you ever wanted to use this inherent skill to perform on a live improv stage? Would you like to feel more confident in meetings? Do you want to meet different people and have fun?
We offer a 5 Level Training Program for Short Form Improv, in addition to an on-going Long Form training workshop. Both are designed for individuals with little or no acting or improvisational skills. Taught by our seasoned veterans of the stage, we teach you the basic techniques used in improv scene work.
Need an idea for a corporate event, birthday party, or an alternative to a regular night out? Then we’re your huckleberry! Village Theatre has a saddlebag full of talented improvisers, in addition to tailor-made shows, work-shops, and classes at all budget levels. We can come to you, or you can come to us. Some examples include:
- private improv show or improv workshop at your event space or office
- hosting or emceeing your event
- improv classes tailored for your group (any size)
