Story and Sketch 2017

Improv, Storytelling, and Sketch Comedy

Four years ago, Anytime/Anywhere was created by Artistic Director Jennifer Green as a way to highlight Piven's long history teaching and performing long-form improv. With a desire to highlight current Piven improvisers, both youth and adult, and professional and student, the first series was a great success. Over three years it grew and expanded, and this year we are building on that growth with Story and Sketch!

Story and Sketch highlights improv, solo storytelling, and sketch comedy all in one exciting festival, honoring the Workshop's commitment to exploring storytelling of all kinds.
