TCR offers workshops to help bolster team building, communication and business skills through theatre practices, including improv, storytelling, and presentation skills sessions. Our acting and improv teachers are expert trainers who have worked within the business community and have a keen understanding of the ways theatrical techniques help build fundamental business skills. Let us know your needs and we can create a custom learning experience for your team.

Testimonial:The Rockwell Collins Human Resources Leadership Team participated in Improv training at TCR during one of our recent offsites. The goal of our offsites is twofold, first to focus on team development and skill building and secondly to work on our corporate strategy development. The Improv class was intentionally scheduled just before we went into our strategic planning session in hopes it would help bring out our creativity, as it is not always easy for our team to go there. We had no idea that the Improv experience would be such a huge accelerator for our team!
I have to admit the team was very nervous about participating in an Improv session. They thought they would be made fun of, be laughed at or even scarier that it required them to be funny. It was not that at all. It was true learning on communication and inclusiveness with a lot of fun built in. As a team we have never laughed so hard, not at each other, but at how creative we could be. Best of all, even though several months have passed I still hear our leadership team saying “yes and”!
I can’t say enough about how awesome the Improv experience was for our team…so much so we are now looking into incorporating it into our executive leadership forum scheduled for the fall.
Private Performances for Fun or Fundraising!
“Private” performances of most shows on the TCR season are available to our business and community partners for fund raising, customer or staff appreciation events, or private parties. You are provided with custom tickets to sell or distribute at you discretion. If you choose to resell the tickets the amount should be agreed upon between you and TCR, not to undersell the price of public tickets to the same production.
In addition to reserving the Theatre for your private party, you receive the following amenities:
- Complimentary use of the Fed Hedges Library and Lobby spaces for receptions
- A personalized curtain speech with a member of the TCR staff and yourself (or a representative of your choice)
- Your name on the Marquee for the night of your performance
- Customized tickets for the evening with your information pre-printed on them
- Scheduling flexibility – Typical curtain time is 7:30 pm with the show running approximately two hours in length.
- Expert assistance by our professional staff
In most cases, a non-refundable, $500 deposit is due within ten business days upon completion of the event contract. Dates are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
