Florida Studio Theatre (FST) is proud to announce the long-awaited return of the annual Sarasota Improv Festival, the premier Festival of its kind in the Southeastern United States. Founded by Rebecca Hopkins in 2009, the Sarasota Improv Festival has become a destination event, drawing thousands of people from across the state of Florida and beyond. After a three-year hiatus due to COVID, the Festival is back for its 13th year and will feature over 20 of the top improv troupes from across the country and as far as Canada and the United Kingdom. The 13th Annual Sarasota Improv Festival will be held on FST’s downtown Sarasota campus Thursday, July 20, through Saturday, July 22, 2023. Headlining the 13th Annual Sarasota Improv Festival is MC Hammersmith, a multi award-winning hip hop improviser and comedian from the United Kingdom.
