Bring Your Own Improv

Bring Your Own Improv is an interactive improv show welcoming voluntary audience participation!  You can participate in one of three ways: applaud for a scene you like, yell out fantastic suggestions, or if you feel you’re ready, jump up and get involved with us on stage. BYOI also offers adult and youth workshops, however, both programs are on hold due to covid19 restrictions. We can’t wait for the program to return once it is safe to do so. Check back often or sign up for program updates.

Bring Your Own Improv is now bringing shows online and free for families. We are bringing our interactive improv show home to you where you will be able to watch and even play online – without ever leaving the house. Even the performers are safe in their own homes performing for you.  Although we are excited to bring you our virtual show, we look forward to performing live at our home at the WCFA again in the future.

Our shows are free so all of our families and community can enjoy our shows. Donations are accepted.

Adult Improv + Acting Workshop

Cost: $195 for non-members / $155 for WCFA Members

Bring Your Own Improv’s six-week adult improv and acting workshop is currently on hold due to covid19 restrictions. We can’t wait for them to return once it is safe to do so. Please stop by the BYOI website for more information on virtual activities.

This workshop is for ages 18 and up. Participants must wear comfortable shoes and bring their own water.

Youth Collective Program

(on hold until further notice)

Cost: $195 for non-members / $155 for WCFA Members

Bring Your Own Improv and the Warwick Center for the Arts have a common interest in educating youth. It is with that in mind that BYOI created a program in 2014 for teens, to teach them improv as well as self-confidence and problem-solving skills, which we call the BYOI Youth Collective.

For each two-month session, youth will take one month of classes followed immediately by one month of shows. This two-month workshop may be repeated as many times as the youth would like until they age out. Each workshop group will be evaluated on their skills in the first class and that will determine the level of skills they will learn in that session.

The BYOI Youth Collective in person program is on hold due to covid19 restrictions. We can’t wait for the program to return once it is safe to do so. Please stop by the BYOI website for more information on virtual activities.
