Who can attend the O-Town Improv Festival?

While we aim for an all-ages appropriate show, it’s best to consider our performances PG 13+. Because of the nature of improvisational comedy, we cannot guarantee any ratings for our shows.

How can I get to the festival venue? And where do I park?

ME Theater is located off of the 528 at 441 in Orlando. Parking can be challenging at the theater, but we have secured overflow spaces across La Quinta Drive from the space.

Participation and Performances

If I’m performing, when do I arrive?

We ask our performers to arrive no less than 30 minutes before your block. This allows us to make sure you are checked in and know where to go for your stage time.

Where do I check in?

There is a check in desk, in the lobby of the theater. Please let the staff there know you have arrived. They will have your badge and other information.

Can I watch other shows?

Your performer badge gets you in to view all shows. We only ask that you make room for paid ticket holders if necessary.

Tickets and Attendance

How do I purchase tickets, and what are the prices?

There are a limited number of tickets are available online or at the door. If you are truly set on a particular block of shows, we suggest purchasing ahead of time. Tickets range from $10 (Thursday and Sunday) to $15 Friday and Saturday. Or for $40, you can purchase a weekend pass which gives you unlimited access to all of our shows.

I bought a nightly ticket, what show do I see?

The nightly tickets, or weekend passes, grant you first seating access to any or all shows that evening or over the weekend, respectively.

Where do I sit?

Ticketed audience members will have first seating access. While most of our audience members choose to sit in the middle or back of the theater, don’t be afraid to sit in the front. We don’t bite!

During the Festival

What facilities are available at the festival venue?

ME Theater is providing a concession stand for snack and drinks during the show. Proceeds will benefit their programs. Restrooms are available near the entrance to the theater.

Is there a schedule of performances?

There sure is! See it here. We do aim to remain as close to on-time as possible, but be aware that sometimes things out of our control happen. If you need to know where we are on the lineup, our staff and volunteers are happy to assist you.

Can I get involved at the festival?

While this year’s teams are already chosen, there are other ways to get involved with O-Town Improv Festival. Attending our shows is the first way. We are also hosting mixers, workshops and social gatherings. We’d love for you to join us at any of these!

You mentioned workshops?

We are hosting some of the most talented and varied workshops we could find. There is not one we would not take ourselves. You do NOT have to be a performer to attend a workshop. The only caveat is if you do not regularly do improv, maybe avoid the ‘expert’ level classes. They are all scheduled for Saturday, March 9. Reserve your space today.


How can sponsors get involved with the festival?

As we prepare for this year’s show, sponsorships are still available with very limited time. Feel free to puruse our offerings and see if you’d like to get involved.

Is photography/videography allowed during performances?

O-Town Improv Festival does not have a problem with any recordings or photography during shows. We do ask that you please do not disrupt other members of the audience with your filming. That being said, each group has the right to ask the audience to refrain from filming or taking photos.

I took some great photos and video, can I share them?

Abso-freakin-lutely. Please share as much as you like but make sure to tag us! @otownimprovfestival on Instagram or #OTIF24
