Sea Tea Improv has opened Hartford, CT’s first studio dedicated to improvisational comedy. Our Studio is home to our classes, rehearsals, end-of-class shares, and other events for Sea Tea Improv and the CT improv community.
About the Studio
Located at 75 Pratt St, Suite 500 in downtown Hartford, CT, our studio consists of three rooms:
Our main Studio Room is a 20′ x 20′ (400 sq. ft.) area featuring one black stage wall with a curtained exit. This room has 19 folding chairs available, 2 bentwood cafe chairs for the stage area, and a rolling desk chair. Soundproofing panels (dubbed our “guilt absorbers” by Will Hines) on the walls & ceiling focus the room’s acoustics. The walls are decorated with our show posters by artist Brian Cook and an improv community board featuring information about upcoming events, classes, workshops, shows, and more by Sea Tea Improv and other area improv and sketch groups.
Beyond the curtain from the Studio Room’s stage wall is our backstage lounge area known as the Tea Room. This 14.5′ x 10′ room features several chairs and couches, a media area for research and recreation, a mini-fridge stocked with beverages available for whatever you can contribute, and our improv library, which contains books and DVDs about improv and comedy for loan to our students and improv community members.
Adjacent to the Studio Room is our small office, the Captains’ Quarters. Here, Sea Tea Improv tends to our business of creating opportunities for improv comedy in and around Hartford.
