The Hideout Theatre is excited to reboot Theatresports, one of our most beloved and popular shows, this Saturday with a special preview show at 8pm! Get your tickets here!
Theatresports is a competitive improv show where two teams go head to head with no restrictions on what kind of challenges they can give one another. Which team will still be standing when it’s game over?
In one Theatresports show you might see hilarious games, 2-player face offs, dramatic scenes, impossible side quests, pushup contests, improvised musicals or epic games of hide and seek.
A panel of harsh judges will be on hand to decide the fate of the teams. Who will receive the most hearts? Who will lose all their lives? Who will respawn? Who will defeat the final boss?
Theatresports is the theatrical equivalent of Mario vs. Bowser, Ryu vs. Ken, Scorpion vs. Sub-Zero.
Anything Can Happen.
Theatresports runs Saturdays in March and April at 8pm. Get your tickets to this Saturday’s special preview show here!
The annual Improvised Play Festival is next weekend: February 23 – 25, 2017.
The Hideout will host troupes from Minneapolis, Vancouver, Edmonton and Los Angeles as well as local favorites for three days of improvised plays and experimental theater.
Out of town guests to the Improvised Play Festival will include Juliet & Juliet from Minneapolis, Folk Lordz from Edmonton, Canada and Ripley from Los Angeles. Local acts include Physics Curse, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Save The World and the Hideout’s hit mainstage show, Process.
“This is my favorite festival,” says Hideout Artistic Director Roy Janik. “It’s everything we love at The Hideout, compressed into one weekend. Stories, genres, theatrical music and lighting, anda little flair for the dramatic. The Improvised Play Festival is a celebration of and a rallying cry for the stuff that lives in the intersection of traditional theatre and modern improvisation.”
Tickets to Improvised Play Festival shows range from $5-15. An all-festival pass can be purchased for $45. Click here for the full schedule!
