Improv Showcase with Improv Innovation

Join us and Ellen Flaks of Improv Innovations (a JCC Affinity Fellow) outside for a free improv show featuring an inter-generational cast of performers along with plenty of audience participation. FUN & LAUGHTER!

This community event is made possible with an Affinity Fellows grant with the Shames JCC on the Hudson, the UJA Federation NY, and by the Dobbs Ferry Public Library.
