Santa Fe Improv is a school, but who doesn’t want to challenge themselves by getting on stage!


To Be Determined is theatrical comedy created right before your eyes! Every show is different, unscripted and unrehearsed. Based on a single word or phrase from the audience, you’ll witness stories unroll from that mystical place of creativity. Three teams of improvisers, courageous as hell, will make you laugh and wonder at the ability to build a world from a word!

A new twist: All performers are now either teachers or advanced students at the Santa Fe School of Improv, and an impressive collective of dedicated and talented people they are!

BANG!, Santa Fe Improv’s first show was a tremendous success with a standing room-only audience.

THE PROGRESSION is our follow-up to BANG! -- one thing leading to another. Once again, four teams of performers from Santa Fe Improv will present an evening of story-telling and comedy, created on-the-spot and in-the-moment, just for you.


WHEN: Friday, October 26th, 7:00 PM

  • WHERE: Warehouse 21, 1614 Paseo De Peralta

  • PRICE: only $10 per ticket (*must be 18 or over to attend, please see below)

  • TICKETS: Available at the door, though we recommend you purchase your tickets online to guarantee your seat - this show will sell out!

BANG! is a comedy improv show created by the performers on the spot - nothing scripted or planned out beforehand - that showcases the unique Santa Fe Improv style.

Working from a creative "spark" provided by the audience, the performers will work as a team to heighten and explore the spark through monologues and "scene painting," from which characters, scenes, and stories will emerge.

As with all improv shows, please set your expectations correctly: there's a 50% chance this show will be good, a 25% chance it will be great, and a 25% chance it will be total shit. Regardless, it will be a memorable evening of immediate art experienced only by the players and the audience.

*You must be 18 years or older to attend BANG! This is a show by adults, for adults. While we do not purposefully go blue and talk about sex or poop or swear all the time, we embrace the full range of human experience and expression.

The Santa Fe Improv Players practice the art of improvisation, a style of comedic theater where scenes and stories are created on-the-spot.

Our show is called NOW because what we do, what you see, happens in the now, in the present moment, and we all experience that moment together.

As you may know, Improv is essential training for comedic actors. What you may not know is that learning to improvise is valuable to regular people as well.

That’s why the Santa Fe Improv community is made up of people from all professions, all ages, and all walks of life.

Improv sharpens your creativity, develops your courage, and helps you adapt to change. It also involves being fully present in the moment, developing new friendships, laughing, and having fun.

You don’t need to be funny or clever to be a good improvisor. Our unique curriculum unpacks many of the mysteries of improv and gives you a step-by-step technique that is simple to learn and apply.

When you see our show, you’ll think to yourself: 

“You know… that looks like fun… and I could actually DO that.”

And you know what – you’re right!
