Welcome to the Village Theatre!
There’s an old saying that the best comedy material is created in a moment of spontaneous crisis. Truth be told, we just made that up, but it has all the promise of a soon-to-be old saying. That saying sums up the Village Theatre’s philosophy. We are an improvisational comedy troupe, and we take all of the material to fuel our stage performance from our audience.
Since 2008, we’ve been entertaining Atlantans (and even some Dora-Villians) with long and short form improv comedy multiple nights each week. We also enjoy playing graceful southern host to our comedy cousins ofstand-up and sketch comedy.
Improv comedy is not a new concept. You may have seen it on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” or live on stages all over this country. But we can guarantee you haven’t experienced a show quite like one you will see at the Village Theatre. Most of our improvisers have at least five years of performance experience, with many having over ten.
Our players bring experience from everywhere, including a spectrum of “day jobs,” that ranges from commercial real estate to medicine to law, and computery type things. All of this experience becomes fodder for spontaneous comedy. We’ve all gathered at the Village Theatre to improvise with a goal of always leaving our audiences wanting more.
Another goal of ours is to provide Atlanta’s cultural community with a fresh and exciting venue to perform and laugh. Our shows are only $5-$10 which allows us to be the most affordable entertainment options in the city.
Many thanks, and here’s to laughter!
