New Tricks: Boston’s Premier over 50 Improv Troupe

Described as “the fine wine of improv”, New Tricks  is the first over 50 improv troupe in New England, and probably one of only a handful in the known universe. We like to boast about our over 462 years  (at least) of experience. The troupe was founded in 2003 by Mike Martin & Jeanne Hillson.  Our members range in age from  50 on up to 80+ proving that ‘old dogs’ can, indeed, learn new tricks.  Our goals are to entertain and inspire our audiences, using our past experiences and everyday lives. We improvise comedy vignettes based on audience suggestions, play improv games, and present true-to-life monologues. We perform at senior housing venues, conferences, fundraisers, and other venues.
