Laugh out loud fun every Friday and Saturday at Oakland's
Improv Theater: Pan Theater.
Don't take our word for it.....
Awkward Face achieved a rhythm that's virtually
unattainable in a free-associative universe. Chalk it
up to chemistry, or the talents of a few ultra-malleable
improvisers. They've taken liberties with the form,
while turning it into a discipline.
(East Bay Express)
We went tonight for the first time (Saturday to watch Awkward Face)
and we laughed a lot. These folks were GOOD. So glad to have
this in Oakland - I'll be back!"
"What a fun time! I rarely give 5 stars but this place is awesome."
We laughed through the whole show. These talented actors delivered
a creative performance."
"I had a great time when I attended the Awkward Face show at 8 pm on
Saturday night. The actors are quick on their feet, and they manage to
elicit many hardy laughs from the audience."

When & Where
Oakland's Improv Theater.
Founded by improvisors from the four corners of the globe at a secret meeting in Oakland. Pan was launched in February of 2002, as a place to study, practice and perform improv theater.
It has since grown into a community theater focusing on a style that blends theater games and elements of Meisner Technique together to create confident, fun loving and risk taking actors.
Pan Alumni can be found throughout the Bay Area, and in NYC and L.A.
