Improv Lesson #1: You’re not in it alone. As a nonprofit San Francisco institution, we feel strongly about giving back to the broader community that sustains us as we build an improvised theatre community from the grassroots.
Through our Community Outreach Programs, like Laughing Stock, which offers free improv classes to people living with chronic and life-threatening illness, BATS brings the skills and delight of improvised theatre to people throughout the Bay Area and beyond.
