BATS Improv turns 20

Filed under: comedy — phil @ 1:33 pm

today marks the 20th anniversay of BATS Improv. from the BATS Improv site:

In November 1986, a group of San Francisco theatre artisits invited Rebecca Stockley, a teacher from Seattle Theatresports, to lead a workshop and teach the new format. The 20 local actors who enrolled in the workshop had varying experience in local theatre productions, but shared little or no experience with improvisation.

That workshop culminated in a sold-out performance on November 10, 1986, at the Zephyr Theater (now the New Conservatory Theatre). A core group from that workshop were so excited by what they learned, they formed Bay Area Theatresports in the months following that workshop…and the rest is history!

i’m happy to say that i’ve been a part of BATS Improv for the past 4 years – two+ as a Sunday Player. i won’t be making tonights party or the show that follows, but i’m sure it’ll be a blast.
