Cheap Date - 1557


Cheap Date is Coldtowne Theater's latest student troupe. The troupe was cast from a student audition, and has been playing together since December 2012. The troupe presents the Harold format and focuses on a fast paced, fun style of improv, where worlds are built and then collide. Before every show, the troupe warms up with a game that involves pasta, a hawk, and dying.

Squirrel Buddies - 1541


With a suggestion of something that "makes you happy", Roy & Jon will start with an improvised song, complete with ukulele. That sentiment will set the stage for the show. What follows is a joyous mystery of connection that will warm your heart and its cockles.

Jon Bolden and Roy Janik are buddies in real life. They are not squirrels in real life. But you may just forget that once you see them perform.

Roy Janik is one of the three owners of Austin's own The Hideout Theatre and a member of the internationally touring Parallelogramophonograph. Roy has performed & taught improv in London, Edinburgh, Montreal, Toronto, Alaska, Chicago, and many other places.

Jon Bolden is an instructor at The Hideout Theatre and performs in many of its primetime shows. He has taught and performed in New York City, Alaska, and Ohio. He was the director of The Hideout's 2012 hit, 'Manhattan Stories: Improvised Woody Allen.'
