Residency: Washington Improv Theater

WIT’s year-long residency brings unscripted performances to Studio

Washington Improv Theater (WIT) is a resident company at Studio Theatre! WIT is the District’s premier destination for improv and home to a roster of company ensembles featuring the District’s most experienced improvisers. Inspired by audience suggestions, WIT's dynamic and unpredictable shows are presented by the most experienced and talented improvisers in the city.

WIT's residency features:

  • Harold Night, the 13-years-and-running free weekly event on Wednesday nights (and moving to Mondays starting Sept. 11).

  • Shows by our company ensembles including the veteran musical ensemble iMusical.

  • Special performances including director-led productions like last year’s MLM-skewering show “Not a Pyramid Scheme” and the light-hearted Western “Tumbleweed!”

Our alumni include Natasha Rothwell (The White Lotus), Aparna Nancherla (Comedy Central’s Corporate), and Rory Scovel (Apple TV+’s Physical).
