If you have a group looking for quality Portland corporate events, banquets and private parties entertainment, look no further than THEY improv in Oregon!
With the City of Roses being the Greenest City in America, we can take special care to reduce the waste associated with these shows. We generally use recyclable materials or donate excess items to charities or others for reuse. Feel free to ask us about our green options.
Whether you'd enjoy an improv comedy, interactive game show or Oregon murder mystery dinner, THEY improv can provide you with a Portland corporate event, banquet, private party or murder mystery dinner that will help you succeed beyond your expectations!
THEY improv leads the way for Oregon murder mystery shows for Portland private parties, banquets and corporate events. With a cast of detectives, quirky suspects and plots customized to each group at a venue of your choosing for a luncheon or dinner show, THEY improv will have your group trying to discover whodunit while laughing the night away. For mid-sized groups, we have a team building version called the Cambridge Solution using the bosses as characters and teams working together to solve the crime. And for smaller groups, THEY improv has a game show version where the participants play all the characters in a mix and mingle party designed to get people to talk to each other and have a great time in a no-pressure environment.
Improvisational comedy is a great way to have our ensemble entertain your group through proven performances that adjust to you. With the lightning in a bottle nature of the shows, everything is made up in the moment meaning that we couldn't repeat a show even if we tried! The audience is part of the creative process. We have full shows as well as our Improv Is Magic approach that uses your people as the performers in a safe environment run by a professional director making it easy and fun for the participants!
Game shows invite your group to participate more directly through actually coming up on stage and being put through TV Show-styled game shows to compete for not very expensive prizes (we wouldn't want anyone unhappy that they didn't win). With a wide selection like our version of the Family Feud, the Match Game, Minute to Win It or the Newlywed Game, there is something to take care of your group. For larger groups and to increase participation, we also have Trivia Night shows that have each table or group competing against every other group, Audience Olympiads that divide your audience into 2-3 teams to compete in games, and What's the Deal? as an offshoot of the Let's Make A Deal TV Show. Our versions of these shows tend to emphasize the personal element and can be enhanced for team building, appreciation or just plain old fun. Simply contact our director to talk through the best options for your group.
For situations where you are looking to have people mingle, such as at conferences or with employees that work remotely, we have the Secret Agent Academy. Your people are transformed into Secret Agents looking for a mole in their midst. They are trying to find someone that was given three false pieces of information to share about themselves while trying to convince the others that they are the mole. If they catch the mole, they get a prize. If they are identified as the mole and they are not the mole, then the one that convinced them wins a prize. It's a great way to get people bonding and learning about one another.
For families, this can take the form of celebrations for weddings, engagements, Bachelor and Bachelorette celebrations, birthdays, reunions, anniversaries and just about anything else you can think of. For gatherings for children and teens, they have their own birthday needs, Sweet 16s, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Project Graduations, After or Post Proms and holidays that are focused on the kids.
We come to you! It is so much more convenient to have a location of choosing with the food and atmosphere that you like. Working with so many groups of such different sizes, it never made sense to have people come to us. Besides the great restaurants, catering facilities, conference rooms and hotels, THEY improv can even come directly into your home or apartment. This can provide the most intimate of options for your amusement for family gatherings or an out of the office evening of bonding. With no pre-defined location, this opens whole new ideas and possibilities that you might not have even considered previously.
We also provide stand-up comedy options to entertain a variety of functions. This ranges from simply providing Emcee services to having one to three comedians on-site to entertain a banquet. The prices have a wide range due to a large and diverse group of available talent. Contact us for more details.
All of these are excellent ways to boost employee morale at meetings and incentives awards gatherings providing new ways to get staff to work together for team building while they feel that the program is just to show your appreciation for their hard work. Whether you are looking for employee recognition, an office holiday party, Halloween or Christmas gift exchange or simply to have a good time, we have ideas that can help your organization with its bonding.
As perhaps the greenest city in the country, the City or Roses is a major economic and cultural hub while having a variety of people and cultures that interact and need a performance group that can handle the nuances involved with entertainment here. With Vancouver just across the Columbia River in Washington and the relatively close proximity of other metropolitan areas, there the city is really a conglomeration of many industrial and cultural enclaves. And with the port, the city is an international hub as well. Additionally, due to the natural beauty surrounding the city, tourists from around the world make their way here to enjoy the hiking, climbing, biking and other outdoor activities that are so popular and available here.
There are many popular destinations in the area within a short drive, such as the Oregon coast, Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, and many more. The city itself features a truly green environment including free public transportation downtown in Fareless Square, historic districts, Powell's Bookstore (which has to be seen to be believed) and many other features that would make anyone from anywhere else jealous.
Portland private parties for families or corporate events are improved through all of these programs. And for a city with people that are both so unique and diverse, THEY improv is ready to provide activities that will work for everyone providing entertainment, wellness, bonding and training. After all, being improvisers, THEY can adjust to practically anything.
The area has high standards for getting people to work together. The area has nearby locations, such as Skamania, that allows people throughout Oregon to get away for their meetings.They go to the various resorts and hotels and expect to have their gatherings reflect their desire to improve their companies while showing appreciation to their employees.
THEY improv is proud to serve the entire City of Roses including Old Town / Chinatown, the Pearl District, Downtown, Lloyd Center, South Waterfront, Clackamas, Milwaukie, Beaverton, Fairview, Gresham, Happy Valley, Lake Oswego, Oregon City, Warrendale along with the rest of the Beaver State and Vancouver in Washington.
THEY can help companies of every sort find the success you need at a price you can afford!
