Sick of fighting over leftovers or the best seat at the children's table? Come laugh off your stress with the hilarious Act3 Youth Improv Troupe! Guaranteed fun for the whole family!
Wait! We're not done yet! Stay for the adult improv show (PG 13) for only $5. Keep reading...
We know it's been a long week: You've been eating Thanksgiving leftovers for two days, you've got family staying in your house with different sleeping and bathroom-usage schedules, your kids just won't stop singing that song about what the fox does or does not say. You need a change of scenery. You need a good laugh. BANSHEE Improv is here to help! Come see BANSHEE and our friends Automatic Improv put on a hilarious, spontaneous double-header improvised comedy show, guaranteed to be fresher than last Thursday's green bean casserole, funnier than Aunt Ethel's dentures-in-the-cup morning routine, and (mostly) free of singing woodland creatures.
BANSHEE and Automatic will each play a 40-minute show, then you'll witness history in the making as these two titans of make-em-ups join forces for an improvisational jam session. It's not to be missed. Tickets only $10 ($5 if you came to the youth show!)
Welcome to our new Youth Improv Director Liane LeMaster and our new Youth Improv Troupe!
Act 3 Productions produces a wide variety of Improvisational Comedy between its two full time Improv Troupes. Available for these public events and for hire, there is an Improv Show at Act 3 for EVERY member of your family, from children experiencing theater for the first time to parents needing a fun night off.
A band of hilarious young comics, ranging in age from 12 to 18, serves up the best family-friendly improv in the Atlanta area. Enthusiastic audience participation is encouraged, so their shows are a great way to introduce young children to live theater. Bring the whole family!

We hit hard. We also improvise.
Discovered in the heart of December 2011, BANSHEE Improv contains a conglomeration of improvisors from the Atlanta area.
Wikipedia claims that Banshees appear most commonly as "ugly, frightening hags" or "stunningly beautiful women." We are proud to say, we can play both.
Come watch us punch improv in the face (lovingly)!
