Renegade Free Improv Weekend

Renegade Theater Company is proud to announce a free improv weekend on Friday, March 12 and Saturday, March 13. Tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis, and you must be present to claim your ticket. Tickets will be available beginning at 9:30 p.m on both nights. The improv performances are at 10:30 p.m on both Friday and Saturday at the Teatro Zuccone in downtown Duluth.

Since bringing Improv comedy back to Duluth early last year, Renegade has seen its audiences grow by leaps and bounds. After months of regularly selling out Friday night shows, Renegade recently added a weekly Saturday performance as well, which is now just as packed. To help keep fans informed, Renegade began a Facebook page, and informed fans that if the group had 250 members by the end of February, they would perform a free weekend of shows in March as a thank you. The group quickly soared past 250 members, and currently has over 440 fans.

As promised, Renegade is happy to offer this free weekend as a small way to express our gratitude to the hundreds of people each week who pack our shows and have played a huge part in making Renegade Improv one of the hottest tickets in town.

“We’re incredibly grateful to our fans,” says Jody Kujawa, director of the Improv team. “We don’t really advertise these shows, we rely on word of mouth. So the fact that we sell these shows out week after week is proof that we have some truly incredible fans who keeping coming back week after week and bringing their friends.”

“We felt awful turning groups of people away on Friday nights, so the first step we took was adding a second show,” adds Katy Helbacka, Renegade’s Artistic Director. “Our motto on the improv team is that we’ll keep adding shows as long as people keep coming to them.

“This weekend is a great way for us to thank our fans who come week after week, but it’s also a way to introduce new people to improv comedy. At a price of zero dollars for an hour and a half of laughter, well, we think that’s a pretty great deal.”

Renegade Theater Company is a nonprofit 501(c)3 arts organization. This production made possible by a grant from the Duluth-Superior Area Community Foundation and the A.H. Zeppa Family Foundation.
