The 46-Hour Improv Marathon: Hour 45 – Fakespeare
June 21, 2015 @ 1:00 pm
An improvised play in the style of William Shakespeare
What is the 46-hour Marathon?
At 5:00pm on Friday June 19, 2015, eight brave and foolish improvisers will take the Hideout stage and stay there until 3pm on Sunday the 21st, performing 46 STRAIGHT HOURS of improvisational theatre and comedy without sleep or respite.
Each hour of the marathon will be a separate show, featuring classic and upcoming Hideout formats, one-off shows never to be seen again, and guest troupes and players from Austin’s ever-growing improv community.
Each hour of the marathon will cost $5 to watch. An all-access Marathon pass is available for $45, which, if you’re crazy brave enough to see all the shows, is a HUGE savings!
A portion of the ticket sales will be set aside to pay the tuition of children who would otherwise not be able to afford classes. The majority of donations, however, will come from people like you clicking the donate button or sponsoring the marathoners directly. This year’s marathon will also be a fundraiser to raise money for the Hideout Youth Program.
Head to the Marathon Sponsorship page
and pledge a few dollars. Every dollar collected from donations will benefit The Hideout’s Kids Improv Scholarship program!
