Happy New Year!
We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are enjoying the start of 2018! We at Shut the Front Door Improv would like to thank you for your continued support throughout the last six years. As we enter our seventh season, we are reflecting on six years filled with performances, classes, workshops, new experiences, successes, and failures.
We started our improv journey from scratch - passion was what propelled us forward. As there was no improv scene in London at the time, we journeyed through uncharted waters. The only way we found success was by surrounding ourselves with incredible people who shared our vision. We found individuals who believed in our goals and were willing to help us on our journey. We built STFD through teamwork, dedication, and strong connections - between our troupe members, our behind-the-scenes team, our sponsors, and our community. Together, we created a family.
We are all searching for connections. We want to connect with friends, family members, co-workers, projects, ideas, movements, and ourselves. We all strive for the inclusive feeling of connecting to something or someone. In a society of screens, distractions, and overbooked schedules, we find ourselves searching for connections that are genuine. We've found that something as simple as laughter has the power to create incredibly strong, honest connections.
Connect Through Comedy
This year, we have decided to shine a spotlight on the ways improv and comedy can make true, lasting connections. We will focus on sharing the stories of those who have found happiness through laughter, made a home in our community, and connected through comedy. We've seen stories of self-improvement, friendship, and love, and we want to share them with you.
Improv is not only an art form, but a powerful tool that can help in many areas of life while offering a connection to a community of positivity and support.
So, sign up for a free drop-in, join a class, come out to a show, or follow us on social media to enjoy the inspirational stories we will be sharing. Start your improv journey today and Connect Through Comedy.
