You’re time is too valuable for one type of entertainment. You want it all, one after the other: Shakespearean puppets, dramatic readings of Yelp reviews, improvised horror stories and whatever else people can fit into their limited time slots. Because we have Netflix and it doesn’t take much before we move on.

Stand-ups and wrestlers, musicians and soapbox speakers, every night will be a completely different cornucopia of Austin’s most entertaining misfits and entertainers that would not fit in any other show. Did I mention that it’s free?

Does getting on stage drive you mad? Is this idea of jumping in front of a crowd of people with no idea what you’ll say an insane idea? Would you find it crazy to join seasoned professionals at creating characters and making up stories on the spot?

Is this the kind of crazy you find irresistible or are you looking for new outlets for the many voices in your head? Then check into The Rubber Room every Sunday at 8 PM at The Institution Theater.

The Rubber Room begins with a no-pressure jam session where anyone can join in the fun and is led by one of The Institution’s own teachers. A simple theme will guide each week’s jam, and the teacher will ensure everyone who wants to will have a time to play in a safe, welcoming environment.

After the jam, stay for a 30-minute show put on by The Faculty, consisting of The Institution’s teachers. The Faculty Show will showcase and highlights the style of improv taught at the theater. Plus, it gives the faculty the opportunity to play together, which they love to do.

Then, stick around for The Institution Lottery, where you and up to three other people can join members of The Institution faculty on stage. The Institution’s is faculty made up of Tom Booker, Asaf Ronen, Sarah Marie Curry, Ted Meredith, Clifton Highfield, and Jo Chauvin (along with weekly guests) a varied group of improvisers that have made their mark around the country (and even the world for a couple of them). They’ll follow the basic tenet of “make the other people look good” if you’re lucky enough to join them on stage.

The Rubber Room, a safe place to bounce around new ideas every Sunday night at 8 PM at The Institution Theater. You’d be crazy to miss this.
