The Ventura Improv Company has moved on! We are no longer at 34 North Palm Street.

This is not the end of the VIC! We are giving up the lease on our theater, but will continue to perform and teach in other venues. See our schedule below or on our calendar!

The Ventura Improv Company has been in existence since 1989 – and will continue to be, just in a more mobile form. Little did the founders know that this art form would grow and be embraced by our Ventura Community. We appreciate you for coming, learning, watching and laughing with us!

We love everyone who has been with us, onstage and off, for the past 27 years. It will continue to be the most wonderful joy ride.
