WHAT IS IMPROVAGANZA!?

A yearly event, Improvaganza! The Hawaiʻi Festival of Improv is Hawaiʻi’s only international festival dedicated to improvised comedy and improvised theatre. Improvisers from all over the world come to Honolulu for a weekend of improv performances, workshops, and events. Improvaganza! is a gathering and celebration of improvised theatre in its diverse expressions.

 

The festival strives to cultivate Hawaiʻi’s local improv community by showcasing local and mainland improvisers while providing opportunities for them to network. The festival also strives to raise the profile of the improvisation artform by introducing audiences to entertaining, stimulating, and thought-provoking performances, and providing performers and theater-goers alike a chance to build and learn improv skills in festival-sponsored workshops.
