Gary Austin, the founder of the Groundlings left a true legacy in his wake.

To honor the brilliance of Gary Austin's work, we perform this form he created 

called The Classroom.

What is The Classroom?

Think, the Learning Annex, but with a twist.

This improvisational form is rooted in theatre and created instantly on the spot. The Students are taught a subject unknown to them. The only person aware of the "subject" that is about to be taught is the teacher themselves. Yet, we never know who the teacher will be until their name drawn from the bucket, by an audience member. One of the many reasons we say, "watch us break all the 'rules.' " 

To honor Gary we renamed this show to include his name 


Due to COVID we are strictly online for now.
