NTC's Improvisational Comedy Troupe is called the N.I.T.W.I.T.S.
(Newnan Improv Troupe With Intelligent, Talented Stooges)
Newnan Theatre Company’s improvisational comedy troupe, N.I.T.W.I.T.S., began ten years ago to bring something more than “just plays” to the community. With shows like “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” becoming a major hit on television, both the original British version and the American version hosted by Drew Carey, the troupe wanted to bring improvisational theatre home. N.I.T.W.I.T.S. performs between nine and ten shows a year at Newnan Theatre Company. Most of the shows have a theme, which allows the audience to suggest topics, specific locations, or objects, as the players then base a comedy sketch around the suggestions.
“It’s a lot of fun,” says longtime N.I.T.W.I.T.S. patron Mike Marchese. “We always plan an evening around a N.I.T.W.I.T.S. show. Our whole group goes out to dinner, and then we head to NTC for a couple of hours of fun and laughter.”
2018-2019 season performances will be announced soon.
During the evening, the troupe plays a variety of games and performs a variety of skits based on a simple idea or premise. Each show is different and unique.
Tickets are $5 with general seating for each show.
All shows begin at 8 pm!
