After an busy (but amazing) month of May when our cast performed in THIRTY shows, having "only" two shows on June 18th and 19th will feel like summer vacation for us. Well, that and putting 15 students through our Training Center classes and getting our nine new cast members ready for their first performances. Oh, and preparing for two weeks' worth of teen improv camps in July. Our next big guerrilla improv event. Come to think of it, June is going to be pretty busy, too!
The month of May was an improviser's dream. The players from Nashville Comedy Theater's team "Infinite Jest" performed eighteen shows throughout the festival, plus an additional nine shows with the very talented Royal Improv Comedy cast. The crowds were amazing, the weather fantastic, and the fellow players are some of the best people in the world to work with. The experiences and memories are ones that we will treasure for a lifetime. And to all the new fans we've discovered this month -- we're ecstatic about you most of all!
Have plans this weekend? We sure do! 4 shows at The Tennessee Renaissance Festival (it be Pirate weekend so we be sharpenin' our cutlasses) and! 2 full length shows up in Nashville. A prize will go to the audience member who attends all 6 shows. (Probably a Red Bull and a hug.) Anyway all the 411 and the ability to purchase your tickets for our May shows below!

The second half of the show will feature a brand new one-act improvised Shakespearean play from our group "Infinite Jest."
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased right now online, or at the door with cash or check.

We hath been practicing our accents, studying our rhyming dictionaries, and polishing our boots. Seems only a fortnight since last midwinter when we were invited to perform at the Tennessee Renaissance Festival and now the joyous day is almost upon us.
Infinite Jest, our Shakespearian troupe, will be improvising never-before-seen plays at the Tennessee Renaissance Festival. Our audience will supply us with the title of a play and we shall perform it in its entirety, in the style of the Bard himself.
We'll be at the Bazaar Stage at Noon and 3pm every Saturday and Sunday in May, including Memorial Day!
