Improv is a fun, fast-paced art form that requires the actor to think outside of the box. It demands focus, a willingness to listen and engage, and tells a story without the safety net of a script. Troupe members explore and develop their improv, storytelling, acting, and teamwork skills in a safe, supportive environment. They work on acting exercises, short-form improv games, as well as long-form improv activities.

Una and Ray had a relationship 15 years ago and haven’t set eyes on each other since. She’s found him again and is seeking answers about the past. Guilt, rage, and raw emotions run high in what The Telegraph calls, “an extraordinary, no-holds-barred drama."
Matilda is an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind. But her talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and headmistress. Dreaming of a better life, she stands up against those who would oppress her, taking her destiny into her own hands.
Save the date for SummerStock 2020 auditions!

Arts environments require risk, courage, vulnerability, and investment of our physical, emotional and intellectual selves.
Venice Theatre seeks to nurture spaces with strong safety nets that support that ethos without compromising a visceral and authentic experience for artists and audiences.
We believe that even in the absence of high-risk material, having pathways for response to unsafe conditions and harassment help to maintain the integrity of the work, its participants, and the organization.
