IMPROV UTOPIA Ireland
May 4 - May 7, 2018
Newgrange Lodge in Newgrange Ireland (50 Minutes North of Dublin)
Our first ever international retreat is a four-day, three-night improv retreat for adults 18 and over and happens in early May. It takes place in Ireland at the Newgrange Lodge North of Dublin. Newgrange itself is a prehistoric monument that was built in 3200BC which makes it older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge. It is heavily featured throughout Irish folklore and legends. Improvisers from all over the world come together and learn improv from internationally renowned teachers. This three-night retreat experience includes improv workshops, camp activities, private showers and bathrooms, all your meals and much more. This retreat is a relaxed environment to learn while experiencing community, camaraderie, and nature. All levels of experience welcome. Master instructors we've had in the past are Craig Cackowski, Dave Razowsky, Susan Messing, Joe Bill and many more.

Camp is one of the best improv experiences that I could have had. To be in a place where everyone loves improv as much as you do is such a rush. The teachers are supportive and are invested in your learning. The view is awe striking and I always wanted seconds at meal times. You truly do make amazing friends and memories there.
