"This year I think we've created a program that encompasses a wide variety of compelling theatrical styles. We're tackling a classic playwright, two wildly different film genres, love stories, worldwide interactivity, and the classic competitive improv format that the Hideout was founded on," said Roy Janik, Artistic Director of The Hideout Theatre. "It's going to be a wild year, and I can't wait."
