Improvisation Comedy Workshop

This workshop is based on Viola Spolin's ground breaking improvisation exercises that spawned the Chicago Second City improv movement from which Saturday Night Live was born. Students enrolling in this four day intensive will participate in a variety improvisation warm ups leading to long form and short form exercises! No experience necessary. We hope to generate ideas/scenes for this year's A Tucson Pastorela through this workshop. Come ready to play and have fun!

Borderlands' first show of the season:


Building the Wall

By Robert Schenkkan

Directed by Marc David Pinate

Temple of Music and Art Cabaret

September 27 - October 15, 2017

NNPN Rolling World Premiere of Building the Wall - The newest play by Pulitzer Prize and
Tony Award-winning playwright 
Robert Schenkkan(The Kentucky Cycle, All the Way, Hacksaw Ridge), directed by Marc David Pinate. It's the very near future, and the Trump administration has carried out his campaign promise to round up and detain millions of immigrants. Now, a writer interviews the supervisor of a private prison as he awaits sentencing for carrying out the federal policy that has escalated into the unimaginable. This riveting, harrowing and illuminating drama delivers a powerful warning and puts a human face on the inhuman, revealing how when personal accountability is denied, what seems inconceivable becomes inevitable.

Building the Wall will be produced at Borderlands Theater as part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are The Fountain Theatre (CA), City Theatre (FL), Curious Theatre (CO), and Forum Theatre (DC), with support from Paul Prokop. For more information please visit
