Q: What is Improv?
A: Unlike traditional scripted theater, Improv Theater is completely made up as it happens. Each Madcap Theater show is comprised of a dozen (give or take) short "scene games" with specific rules that the actors must follow. You, the audience, provides suggestions for what each scene will be about. This results in a hilarious, energetic, and unique experience every show! No two shows are ever alike.

Q: What is a Madcap show similar to?
A: Madcap Theater is different from any other show you've ever seen. However, if you've ever seen "Whose Line is it Anyway?", the concept of Madcap Theater should be immediately familiar. Other famous groups include "The Second City", "The Groundlings", or "Comedy Sports".

Q: Is it anything like standup comedy?
A: No. At Madcap, there are performers standing on a stage but this is where the similarities end. Madcap Theater is improvised theater. Not standup. As such, heckling is not acceptable and is just plain rude.

Q: Where is Madcap Theater?

Q: Is there a food or drink minimum?
A: No!

Q: May I bring food or drink from elsewhere into Madcap Theater?
A: No. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Q: Are there any age limits?
A: There is no age limit but we have found that children under 5 do not "connect" well with the show and generally can become a distraction for the other audience members.

Q: Do your performances include any offensive language or subject matter?
A: Madcap maintains a very strict "clean performance" policy. Our performers are required to keep their content "above the belt" and their language non-offensive. This is a greater challenge for the performers, as it forces them to be creative, rather than relying on dirty jokes or words. The end result is a family-friendly environment that anyone can feel comfortable attending.
