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

Hanging with Harold MARATHON!
And DID YOU KNOW that once you do 5 Harolds, we'll give you a cool passport to record all of the Harolds you have done? DID YOU FURTHER KNOW that once you do 100 Harolds, you can perform a Harold in a longform showcase? We have about 4 people who have gotten to 100, and once we get 3 more we'll schedule that team for a show!

This marathon is an opportunity to get to know other improvisers, earn or finish your passport, jump to the next level, get a lot of Harold practice, and really challenge yourself to start nailing this popular longform. Greg, Julia, and Casey will be there the whole time to guide you and reconcile every show into a passport, dating back to 2012. Many other members of Sea Tea Improv will be there to hang out throughout the day as well!

HOW IT WILL WORK:

Drop in any time. Harolds will start every 30 minutes beginning at 9 AM.

We will put signups outside the studio for HALF the spots in every Harold. The other half will be reserved for whoever walks in the door or hangs around after their last Harold ends. So you can play it safe and come sign up early in the day, or just drop in whenever you want and we'll toss you in the mix right away. If we have dozens of folks we'll send a second group into our second studio. We'll make room for everyone!

No advance tickets-- just show up on Feb 7th and grab one of these 480 spots to practice your Harolds!

PRICE: $1 per Harold!

We will load up the studio with snacks, pizza slices, and drinks that will be available for $1 each. Bring your singles!

Chicago Teen Comedy Fest
April 18th, 2015

The Teen Performance Class has two components: first, we’ll spend eight weeks honing our improv skills, getting to know each other, and forming a great team. Then, for the second year in a row, we’ll fly out to America’s comedy mecca: Chicago! Last year’s team saw two professional improv shows– one at Second City and one at the Improv Olympic– and participated in a whole day of improv, sketch comedy, and stand-up comedy workshops. Each of our wonderful teens that went to Chicago had a life-changing exposure to different styles of comedy.

This year's festival is on April 18th, 2015.The cost of this year’s class & trip is $599. This price includes the eight-week class, travel and lodging to Chicago, and entertainment in Chicago. We recognize that this class is expensive and have tried to keep the costs as low as possible, but we know it will be difficult for some families to afford this trip. Sea Tea Improv is highly committed to sending all interested teens on the trip, so we are happy to discuss payment plans or help structure fundraising efforts with the students. Please do not hesitate to contact us if your teen is interested in the class but a deposit of this magnitude is out of reach at this time. We will help your family find a way.

IMPROV'D CINEMA - Sea Tea Improv Fixes a Rom Com!
Sea Tea Improv is back at Real Art Ways to fix up a bad movie!

This time around: no Rom Com is safe.

Here’s how it works: we’ll secretly pick 5 of the worst flicks we can find, and the audience will vote on which one to play.

Then we’ll hit mute, and Sea Tea Improv will dramatically improve this terrible film by voicing over the entire movie – with original score and sound effects – on the spot!
