Upcoming Events at 4th Street Theater:

Improv Nights

Makeshift Up is Northwest Indiana’s premier short-form/medium form improv team. Their brand of improv is performing ‘theatre without a script’; they strive to use the same skills and tools used in scripted productions in their improvised scenes and games all the while making audiences laugh.  The shows involve interesting characters, great scenes, and memorable performances all based on audience suggestion. They perform throughout Northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area.

Musical Improv

The Tony Stanzas are Northwest Indiana’s premier long-form musical improv team. They take suggestions at the top of the show and create a fantastic fully-improvised musical right in front of your eyes.  Everything – from the music to the lyrics to the dancing to the scene work – is improvised. They perform throughout Northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area.
