Drop-in Improv Workshops

DROP In WorkshopHere at NCT we like to share what we know. We have created a fun, simple cost effective way for you to jump into the world of improv comedy without a huge commitment of time, and money.

If you are a regular human being Improv comedy workshops teach you how to think quicker on your feet, be more confident, and get outside your comfort zone.

If you are a business professional Improv teaches how to be a better public speaker, be a better leader and how to listen with more intent.

If you are a creative, Improv teaches you how to follow your story,  heighten ideas and “follow the fun”

And to top it all off Improv teaches you how to be a better human being.  come out and give it a try.

This February get $5 admission to any Friday or Saturday 7:30pm or 9:45pm show with your donation of a NEW book for kids ages 0-18 benefiting Kids Need to Read. Though any NEW book donation would be fantastic, the team at Kids Need to Read are most in need of picture books for Kinderkids-need-to-read-book-drivegarten and chapter books for grades 1-3.

Call the box office at 602-374-5638 to get $5 tickets today!
Remember, each person using the discount must be donating a kids book and the books must be new!

Why a book drive? For Zoe! Director Dorian & Krissy’s daughter Zoe turns 10 this month and she wants to share her passion for reading with kids in need. Zoe asked if we could have a book drive at her upcoming birthday party, but we thought we could do better and get ALL of our NCT Super Fans in on the fun!

Join us this month and participate in the book drive for Zoe’s big birthday! Click HERE to learn more about our friends at Kids Need to Read!
