ATC Improv is 1 year old! We will be celebrating with a smorgasboard of improv games and special guest performers…
The Ghost Sheep will be making their first foray into longform improv with a format called The Motel, a show where every scene takes place in – you guessed it – a motel room!

There will also be plenty of special guests, including Neil Curran, founder of Improv Fest Ireland, who will be taking audience participation to another level in his show, ‘Neil + 1’.
Last but not least, a birthday would not be a birthday without cake, so stick around after the show and celebrate with us!

What better way to celebrate Belgium’s National Day than by joining us with your wonderful imagination? Be sure to stick around after the show for celebratory drinks- whether you’re Belgian or not!Remember how we said that our June show was the last one before the summer break? We lied. We will have one last performance, on Belgium’s national day, no less!

Since the hideously talented Sacha Hoedemaker is visiting Brussels to give musical improv workshops for ATC Improv, we decided it would be a crying shame NOT to do a musical performance with him and go out with a bang.So join us at ‘Les Caves’ (basement) of Le Cercle des Voyageurs (Lievevrouwbroersstraat 18, 1000 Brussels) with your suggestions so that we may perform for a musical that’s never been written!Tickets cost 5 euro and be sure to stick around for celebratory drinks, whether you’re Belgian or not!

ATC: Spoon River Anthology (14 Jan 2015)

AUDITIONS- SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY

By Edgar Lee Masters
Adapted and Directed by Christopher Flores 
The American Theatre Company is proud to announce auditions for its 2015 FEATS entry: Spoon River Anthology. This American classic is a collection of eloquently and sharply written free-verse epitaphs spoken from the cemetery of the fictional town of Spoon River. Published in 1915, this ground breaking work caused great sensation because of its forthrightness about sex, moral decay and hypocrisy. One hundred years later, Master’s critique and observations of man still resonate deeply.AUDITION DETAILS
