100 Things to Do in Hartford Before You Die

This one-time home to both Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe is brimming with historical, artistic, and cultural assets that most cities this size can only dream about. Each of Hartford’s unique neighborhoods boasts a wide array of hidden treasures, vivid entertainment, and culinary delights. From world renowned museums and music venues to a bevy of food, festivals and fashion, 100 Things to Do in Hartford Before You Die will show readers that there is truly something for everyone in the city of Hartford.

Improv'd Cinema - Sea Tea Improv Fixes a Dizney Channel Movie!
Improv'd Cinema: Sea Tea Improv Fixes a Movie!

Here’s how it works: The audience helps pick a movie from the night's chosen genre that our improvisers have never seen. Then, think Mystery Science Theater 3000, but instead of cracking jokes while the movie plays, we replace all the audio live! We hit mute, and Sea Tea Improv will dramatically improve this terrible film by voice-acting over the entire movie — with a new original musical score and live foley sound effects — on the spot and on the fly!

For this show, we'll be fixing a Dizney Channel Movie! Come hear us put voices and a whole new plot on on top of a movie made for preteens who always talk in stage voices that probably launched the career of some failed pop star.

What's Your Problem? with Chion Wolf - Episode 2
What's Your Problem? is a live advice show at Sea Tea Improv's underground comedy theater for curious people with a sense of humor.

Write down your problem ANONYMOUSLY, put it in the big box , and host Chion Wolf (WNPR, The MOuTH at The Mark Twain House) will help you figure it all out with her panel of unqualified yet enthusiastic, thoughtful humans - including a random volunteer from the audience! At the end, we'll welcome advice from the crowd.

Very mature children are invited, and immature adults appreciated. Profanity likely.

The audio of each show will be recorded live and released later as a podcast.

What's Your Problem is on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/everybodyhasproblems/

What's Your Problem is on Twitter: https://twitter.com/yerproblem

What's Your Problem has email: everybodyhasaproblem@gmail.com

*DISCLAIMER: This is NOT professional advice! These are people discussing all sorts of problems, telling stories, and exploring philosophical conundrums.

If you're struggling in this chaotic, cruel, funny, absurd, amazing world, and you need someone to talk to, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255. What's cool is that you don't have to be suicidal to call them. You don't need to be at the absolute end of your rope to ask for help. Ever.

Also, Chion gives pretty kickass hugs, which you also don't need to be at the end of your rope to ask for.

TELL ME ANOTHER: PERSONAL STORYTELLING
WITH TERRY WOLFISCH COLE

Everyone has a story to tell, but most people don’t know how to captivate listeners with a well-crafted tale.

Storyteller Terry Wolfisch Cole will share the craft of personal storytelling with you in this 3-part workshop.

In the first session you will learn how to identify and tell your own true stories. The next week, you will practice your story and receive feedback. In the final session, you will have the opportunity to present your story to family and friends at a public showcase at Sea Tea Comedy Theater!

Hanging with Harold - Weekly Drop-In Jam
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a learn-by-doing drop-in jam where Sea Tea Improv and members of the improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) perform a kind of longform improv together known as the Harold.

Will you be among the first improvisers to reach 100 completed Harolds?

$5 per person
