A Thanksgiving Week Note


Hi!  Mike here.  I wanted to take a moment in this season of Thanksgiving to extend the Hideout Theatre’s appreciation to the improv community and the larger community of Austin.

November, each year, brings with it many highlights: Thanksgiving, of course, Wafflefest, and the Austin Improv Collective (AIC) Family Picnic and Awards Banquet.  This past Sunday, the AIC celebrated Shana Merlin, ColdTowne and the Hideout Theatre with a series of roasts and toasts.  I was doubly honored to also receive an individual award for service to the community.
