GreenRoom Improv is an ensemble-based theatre company that specializes in improvisation. GreenRoom was founded by a group of Judson University (Elgin, IL) students in 1999 as a result of the cancellation of the school’s Theatre program. Since then GreenRoom has performed nationally for a wide range of audiences and events. They currently have residencies in two theaters: The Hemmens Cultural Center in Elgin, IL, and Raue Center For The Arts in Crystal Lake, IL where they perform monthly. In addition to these residencies, GreenRoom plays multiple bookings throughout the year with their unique blend of clean, high-energy, multi-faceted improv comedy.

Don’t miss the first live theatrical production of Cary Grove High School’s 2021-2022 season!

Tickets are on sale now online and will be available at the door. Our CG Drama cast and crew are excited to welcome back our audiences for Failure: A Love Story!

By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead – expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from a blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally, consumption. Tuneful songs and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River before their time unexpectedly runs out.

Cary Grove High School is excited to welcome back our CG Drama audience for this magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual’s successes or failures. Click on the button below to buy tickets.
