Now available online, we are accepting donation to provide shows to NYC schools and organizations AND ticket packages to see our shows in Times Square.

Click link and choose DONATE A SHOW or DONATE 20 TICKETS.

Improvisational Shows and Workshops are amazing cultural arts experiences but also promote literacy, communication and team management skills. Bad enough the arts education is becoming more and more scarce, it has come to our attention that NYC schools no longer include any sort of public presentation training. We seek to help bridge this gap with our Improv workshops and residency programs, giving NYC students the skills to get better jobs, as well as better perform in interviews. Good communication skills are one of the most important in the work force including jobs in sales, service and management.

With each of the following you can choose the recipient of the package or we will pair up your generous donation with a special needs organization from our list. We get calls and emails daily form schools and programs that wish to participate but lack the funds.

DONATE A SHOW: We travel to schools nation wide charge $800 for a show ($1200 for two back to back) These rates are well below the average (WAY BELOW premiums) for a 4-5 actor show on our level. Similar companies charge as much as $2000 or more for one 40 minute program. Improvisation allows us to charge less thanks to no writers, flexibility in casting and lack of major set-up time. Still NYC schools, especially TITLE ONE, have very little budget for these programs. Most have very little or NO PTA support to fill these gaps like the rest of the country. As little as we charge many of these schools still cannot afford.
$500 for one show
$5000 (10 at $500) for a week of shows
(Up to 20 shows or up to 4/day for 5 days)
DONATE A WORKSHOP: Our two hour workshops are great ntroduction to the art of Improv AND great masterclasses for experienced performers. We offer these same workshop to corporations teaching 6-7 figure income managers and staff to better communicate. Our goal is to teach more and more students these skill prior to joining the work force.
$200 for on teacher up to two hours
(Recommended for class of 20. Up to 30 OK)

$1750 for up to 20 hours PLUS performance showcase
(Recommended for class of 20. Up to 30 OK)

DONATE 20 TICKETS: We often have groups of students attending our public shows in Times Square. We charge them $10pp (reg $20-50). CLICK DONATE 20 TICKETS and for just $5pp you will send 20 students to see our Off-broadway show -  A great cultural arts exposure.

Also check out the COMEDY HALL OF FAME FOUNDATION. Through this amazing organization we are providing accredited program to NYC high school students. Currently about 200-300 students are eligible for fine arts credit through these programs.
