Each year, First Act Theatre Arts holds auditions for students ages 12 to 18 to be a part of our award-winning Improv Troupe. This group works to fully develop original characters in each scene, show how their characters are connected to one another, establish the world in which the scene is set, and follow the rules and restrictions of a variety of improv games.


Congratulations to our 2023 Improv Troupe Members:

Our 2022-23 Troupe will represent First Act Theatre Arts at the KC Improv Tournament in July 2023.

First Act is holding auditions for the First Act Improv Class. The First Act Improv Class allows students from all experience levels and backgrounds to build skills and ideologies not only applicable to the stage, but to their everyday lives! We will focus on improvising well crafted scenes whether they are comedic or dramatic. The goal is to build confidence in thinking on your feet.

Improv Class will be AUDITION ONLY and enrollment will be limited to 10 students. Auditions will be on Saturday, November 6 from 2-4PM. Email with questions about Improv auditions. Sign up here.

Get ready for Kansas City’s FIRST Improv competition for teens! This Tournament will be open to schools, community theatre groups and independent teams from the KC area and beyond. Who will come out on top and take home the trophy?
