THE SECOND CITY HOLLYWOOD ANNOUNCES:
LA Improv Relief Week for Haiti
The Second City Hollywood together with the three other major improvisation companies in Los Angeles: IO West, Upright Citizens Brigade and The Groundlings ask you to join them for LA Improv Relief Week for Haiti. Together, these four comedy institutions will collect donations from their patrons from January 24th-31st at each and every performance at their venues. The theatres will collect donations after each show, 100% of which will be donated to Haiti relief organizations. In addition, the owner of The Second City, Andrew Alexander, will personally match the dollar amount brought in by audiences at The Second City Theatre through these donations.
LA Improv Relief Week will culminate with several of the theatres hosting their own events where ticket revenue and donations will be added to the cause (check individual theaters and their websites for details and additional information). The Second City Hollywood on Saturday January 30 will host an evening of “pay what you can” alumni performances. In addition, IO West presents an evening of benefit shows on Thursday January 28. The Groundlings will host a series of special main company and alumni benefit performances on Thursday, January 28. And The Upright Citizens Brigade will offer Mercycat at their venue on Sunday, January 31. Check each venue for performance times, ticket information and donation opportunities.
Through laughter we can help them survive. By surviving, they will learn to laugh again.
