Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. -  Local improv comedy group, the Richmond Comedy Coalition, will celebrate the grand opening of its new theater with a variety of shows and classes August 1 - 3.

The location of the group's Coalition Theater will be 8 W. Broad Street, between Adams and Foushee streets.

Earlier this year, the Richmond Comedy Coalition announced that its own theater, which will allow the group to centralize its productions and classes as well as increase the number of its performances.

For the past few years, the group performed two monthly shows at Gallery5 and a monthly show in Manchester, as well as taught a variety of improv classes in various rehearsal spaces. With the new theater, it hopes to increase the number of performances  to include weekly shows on Friday and Saturday nights.

The group held a Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $27,000, which the RCC will use to raise money for renovations of the new theater. The new space will hold a 60 to 80 seat theater with a stage, box office and green room. It also features a mural by local artist Mickael Broth, window signage by Sure Hand Signs and laser-engraved materials by Big Secret.

The opening weekend features a free improv and sketch open mic night, a collection of shows featuring the Coalition's new improv house teams and a dance party.
