Improv Invasion is a yearly competition between improv teams made up of five team members and an alternate. Team members must be between the ages of 12 (by June 1, 2018) and 18 (on January 1, 2018) and also have taken a Beginning Improv class. Team auditions are held in the fall; teams meet during Winter and Spring class sessions for 3 hours each week, 6pm – 9pm. Team members pay $65 in addition to regular class tuition for their class/rehearsal time.
Alternates participate in all team classes/rehearsals and the Improv Invasion event. At Improv Invasion, there is an Alternate game. If one of the 5 team members is not able to participate, the Alternate steps in and takes their place. Being an Alternate is a great way for students to build skills and gain confidence!
Event Costs are approximately $275 and include an Improv Workshop (on February 3rd), tickets to an Improv show, food and lodging at the event, experienced judges, awards for top teams, a VIP from each team, an overall MVP, team shirt and event swag. Actual cost is based on total number of participants and is available after auditions for all areas. Participants are welcome to pay in full by January 30th, or to pay $100 by January 30th and pay the remainder in three equal payments (one each month, February through April).

Class Registration Information
Each team member pays regular tuition + $65 each session to cover extra hour of instruction. For the Winter session, please register and pay for a second choice class. Students who are selected for a team will be moved to the appropriate class, and the extra $65 fee will be due at that time. If a student is only interested in being on a team, they may wait to register after teams have been selected. If this is after the early registration deadline, contact the office, and the early registration discount will be honored.
