Similar to the British program “Whose Line Is it Anyway?” The Society Improv comedy group invites all Santa Clarita residents to take in a chuckle.
The group consisting of 12 actors – two of which also function as directors – has spread laughter to places west of the Rockies, through Idaho, Colorado, Utah, Nevada and Washington.
- “We’ve been together for almost seventeen years now, we know each other, we trust each other, we know how to lift each other up,” director-actor Kirby Heyborne said.
The actors conduct a variety of games and a musical where the audience offers suggestions on what they will like to see performed on stage.
The kicker? There are no scripts and nothing is planned – everything is made up on the spot.
Director-actor Lincoln Hoppe described improv as “jumping out without a net.”
Getting involved in improv might seem difficult at first, but with practice, you can become better at it. While attending a show, you can see their creativity and have fun at the same time.

“Gather a group of friends together, tear down all your walls of inhibitions, throw questions out the door, listen to each other and have fun,” Heyborne said.
