Kansas City Improv Festival 2020August 20-29, 2020
About Kansas City Improv Festival 2020The KC Improv Company is pleased to announce that we have opened submissions for the 20th Kansas City Improv Festival, stretching over two weekends: August 20-22 and August 27-29. Come play with us!
In 1994, Kansas City hosted one of the first improv festivals in the United States, and in the years since we've brought in renowned improvisers such as Del Close, Mick Napier, Susan Messing, Jill Bernard, Joe Bill, and hometown hero Jason Sudeikis. Last year we had LIss & Sams and Off Book; this year we want YOU to be part of the fun!
We are looking for local and national troupes with seasoned improvisers. Most KCIF performers have two years of experience who regularly coach and perform with their teams. If this is you (and we know it is) send us a video (minimum 20 minutes) of your group, reflective of your current cast, performing within the last year. Please include the time-stamp of when your group's set starts (if necessary).
Early Bird Submission Fee: $20 – April 01 to 12
Regular Submission Fee: $25 – April 13 to May 16
Late Submission Fee: $30 – May 17 to 31
Do you have a form you use but don’t submit because you are unsure of the theatre’s tech capabilities? Fear not, our small but mighty theatre features high-end 18 channel mixing and soundboard, a vast array of mics and recording equipment, in-house full-weighted keyboard, multi-color LED lighting system, video projector/screen, plus a full AV production. So if it’s something cool that rocks when it goes up, submit it!
We can’t wait to play with you!
