Philly Improv Theater Mainstage

Philly Improv TheaterEditEdit Description

Philly Improv Theater's Mainstage is on the ground floor of the Adrienne Theatre - and was formerly the home of InterAct Theatre Company and The Wilma Theatre Project. The beautiful 104 seat Mainstage features stadium seating, with a large 34 ft. wide and 25 ft. deep stage which can be closed off with a manually operated black velvet curtain for a more intimate atmosphere. Two staircases - one of each side of the stage behind the curtain - lead to a nice greenroom with 3 separate dressing rooms and two restrooms.

For performances or events the stage has a standard light-plot, full audio and video projection capabilities, and includes a tech operator for all equipment in the rental cost. Rehearsals do not include use of the theatrical lighting, audio, video projection, or the presence of a tech operator (with substantial savings as a result).
