The Hideout Theatre
617 Congress Ave. (map) (512) H-I-D-E-O-U-T
We are in the business of improvisational theatre. We make up all our
comedy, plays, and sketches on the spot (unless otherwise noted). Short
form, long form, Chicago-Style, NY-Style, CA-Style, Austin-Style – we
do it all (especially Austin-Style, it’s our specialty).
We host and produce improv shows Thursday through Sunday. For some of
the shows, we invite independent groups to perform (everything you see
on Thursday night, for instance) and some of the shows we personally
produce (everything you see on Saturday night, for instance).
Troupe – usually means a group of people who work together
independently of any theater to create their own style and show. The
troupes are usually made up of improvisers who have taken classes, here
or elsewhere, and enjoy working and performing together. We have a few
weekly troupes, like Parallelogramophonograph (who perform every Friday
at 10pm), and Firth&Arjet (who perform every Thursday at 10pm).
Show – usually means a produced production with a curated director,
cast, and crew. A good example is our Saturday night 8pm Mainstage
shows. Every Saturday at 8pm you can see a full-scale improvised
production. This is the bread and butter of the work we do, so we
definitely recommend you checking this out.
