Featured Speaker: Brianne (Bri) Halverson, Front Porch Improv

 We enjoyed learning and laughing about all the ways Front Porch Improv partners with a number of community organizations and businesses. This community theater consists of 20 primetime players as well as a couple hundred students. Bri told us that the core principal to any improv is saying "yes!!" They hold weekly shows every Friday and Saturday at 8pm, in addition to 12 fundraisers a year, private events in homes or place of work, as well as team building workshops.

One of Bri's brilliant programs (her brain child) is "Trauma Drama" for middle and high school aged youth. This 14 week program helps children address everything from abuse to struggles with abandonment and neglect, which she says is the biggest issue.

Another featured program from FPI is "Savannah for Morons" which is basically a trolley tour roast of Savannah's history. Oh, and if you are in need for a host or two to Emcee your event with a light hearted and fun approach, look no further- FPI has got you covered!

Want to support FPI further? Consider the following membership levels:

  • $6/month: supporter
  • $25/month: unlimited tickets to all shows
  • $45/month- unlimited tickets to shows and classes
