The District Improv Festival Returns To The Unified Scene Theater, September 8th-9th, 2017

Now in its sixth year and scheduled to take place between Wednesday, September 6th and Saturday, September 9th, 2017, the District Improv Festival has been growing steadily, showcasing not only standout local improv talent, but also the opportunity to see some of the most talented improvisers from around the country, with troupes visiting from Chicago, NYC, Philly, and many other cities.  
And, for the second year in a row, we at The Unified Scene Theater are proud to be a second stage to its run of shows; what’s more, our partnership has grown in size: while last year we hosted only two blocks of shows on the Friday evening of the festival, this year our relationship is expanding to include two additional blocks of shows on the Saturday afternoon of the festival, one of which is entirely FREE, and other costing only $5.
We’re once again proud to be partnering with DIF, specifically to be bringing DC (and Bloomingdale) four total blocks of performances, at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Friday, September 8th, and two more, on Saturday, September 9th, all of which will feature local and visiting troupes, and one of which is, again, entirely free.
