Like Tina Fey or Amy Poehler?
Then do I have the weekend event for you! Jet City Improv, Seattle’s own Improv Theater is hosting their annual Seattle Open this weekend! The Seattle Open is an improv competition for high school teams where students are judged based on their energy, creativity, and of course, improv. Watch some of western Washington’s most talented high school improvisers in the Semi-Finals and the Finals of the competition this weekend! Returning champs Charles Wright Academy will be there, along with two teams from Ingraham High School and representatives from three other schools! The preliminary round of the competition was last weekend letting only six out of eleven teams through to the second round. The competition will be held at Jet City Improv in the University district and tickets are free (there is a $5 suggested donation)! These students are crazy talented and it is sure to be an entertaining event!
Or if for some crazy reason you have plans this weekend and can’t make it, Jet City is a great place to go year round. They often have themed long-form shows running, as well as their usual Jet City show. It’s fun for everyone and always a good time! Support local improv, local theater and local students and come on out to Jet City this weekend!!!
