Every Wednesday the Hideout brings you a workshop on a special topic in improvisation with the top improv instructors, directors and players in Austin. Our first session of 2018 classes will be focusing on Stagecraft, with each week covering a different technical skill or tool for bringing professional improv comedy and theater to the stage. You can register for all 10 classes for the crazy cheap price of $125 or you can register each week à la carte for $25.


Schedule TBA. Topics include Mime and Spacework, Movement, Stage Presence, Non-Verbal Reactions, Walking Through Doors, Hosting, and more!
