About Us

Lancaster Improv Players (LIP), founded in 2015, has performed throughout Pennsylvania.

LIP became an independent nonprofit organization in 2019. We opened up our first improv theater at 10 S. Prince Street in August 2019. In May 2020, we moved nearby to our present location at 16 S Prince Street in Downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania. LIP teams perform on our stage weekly. We offer an entertaining mix of long- and short-form, crafting an unforgettable experience for the audience!

Share a Laugh, Share a Meal

Every ticket sold as part of our SHARE A LAUGH, SHARE A MEAL program provides a meal to a child in need. We selected The Mix at Arbor Place’s “What’s for Dinner” program as the recipient of these funds.

If you want to donate directly to them, click here. They do great work.

Latest Update

Hi folks,

We are currently in process of reopening our location at 16 S Prince St. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and EventBrite for tickets for classes and shows as they are announced.

While our space has been dark for in-person events, we are continuing a more virtual existence for the remainder of July. We have shows broadcast to our Twitch channel (Twitch.tv/LancasterImprovPlayers). These shows are on most Saturdays & the first Fridays of the month. As we return to in person, we’re looking into adding tech to continue these streams for our online friends who live outside of the Lancaster area. Updates on shows will be released when details are available.

If you do enjoy what we do and can’t wait for us to reopen, please consider giving us a donation. This will help us cover our expenses and help us get back on our feet after being dark for 15 months. We completely understand if you’re not able to do so. There is so much going on in the world there are so many worthy causes for you to support. See our donation page for more information or to donate.

Take care of each other Lancaster, we’ll see you soon. If you are able, please do get vaccinated against Covid and stay healthy.

Much love,
The Lancaster Improv Players
