The Upfront Theatre Closing

to Reorganize as Nonprofit Organization

The Upfront Theatre has announced its closure effective April 23, 2020.
A committee has been assembled seeking to transition the theatre to a nonprofit organization.
The theatre will remain closed pending completion of this process. The committee hopes to
reopen by the end of the year.

“I want to thank the staff, volunteers, performers, and the local community for supporting the
theatre for the past 15 years,” said Stiles. “I am excited for the new opportunities for the club
as a nonprofit and look forward to dropping in to perform when they reopen.”

Beyond a year-round schedule of weekly improvised comedy performances, the theatre also
plans to continue teaching adult and youth improv classes, community outreach programs, and
facilitating applied improvisation business workshops through their “Bizprov” program.
