American Stage Announces New Improv Programming

American Stage presents a new series of improv this season!

St. Petersburg, FL – American Stage Improv introduces a new series of unscripted, impromptu theatre this season! The hilarious and renown HAWK & WAYNE combine a unique mixture of the Chicago and West Coast long-form improvisation styles through Hawk’s training at Second City Chicago and Wayne’s training at the Los Angeles’ Groundlings. This season, HAWK & WAYNE presents a new show: ANYWHERE, U.S.A. This season also brings two premiering House Teams to the stage to perform longform improv and laugh-out-loud scenes: AS PER USUAL and SEPARATE CHECKS. All performers in these new improv troupes learned the trade through the American Stage Improv Training Program, and we're thrilled to bring them into the spotlight.
