This improv troupe is devoted to making the world more hilarious, one person at a time.

RECESS is an educational outreach program and event run by the Playground Theater to introduce audience members to improvisational comedy theater as means of self-expression. They mix together different styles of improv. There's the short-form improv, which involves consistently changing routines that rely on audience suggestions. And long-form improv, which uses the basic construct and parameters of a linear story, but otherwise lets actors go their own way.

Along the way, they'll give you insights into how improv works, so you can be funnier faster. This show will give you an inside look into the world of improv theater, while providing hilarious entertainment at the same time. Who can resist a 2-for-1 deal?
