THE RUBBER ROOM – An Open Improv Jam

Does getting on stage drive you mad? Is this idea of jumping in front of a crowd of people with no idea what you’ll say an insane idea? Would you find it crazy to join seasoned professionals at creating characters and making up stories on the spot?

Is this the kind of crazy you find irresistible or are you looking for new outlets for the many voices in your head? Then check into The Rubber Room at 6 pm on the first Sunday of every month at The Institution Theater!*

The Rubber Room begins a short teacher set where The Institution Theater’s improv teachers strut their stuff for a bit, follow by group warm up and a no-pressure jam session where anyone can join in the fun and is led by one of The Institution’s own teachers. A simple theme will guide each week’s jam, and the teacher will ensure everyone who wants to will have a time to play in a safe, welcoming environment.

Then, stick around for The Institution Lottery, where you and up to three other people can join members of The Institution faculty on stage. The Institution’s is faculty made up of Tom Booker, Asaf Ronen, Sarah Marie Curry, Ted Meredith, Clifton Highfield, and Jo Chauvin (along with weekly guests) a varied group of improvisers that have made their mark around the country (and even the world for a couple of them). They’ll follow the basic tenet of “make the other people look good” if you’re lucky enough to join them on stage.

The Rubber Room, a safe place to bounce around new ideas every other Sunday night at 6 PM at The Institution Theater (check the calendar to see when). You’d be crazy to miss this.

*Sometimes, due to scheduling conflicts, The Rubber Room might be on the week before or the week after the first Sunday of each month. Please check the banner on the top of this page and/or the calendar to make sure.
