About once a month, students meet after school to play a wide variety of theatre improvisation games. Students do no need to be enrolled in a theatre elective or participating in a production to participate.  All Mount Vernon students are welcome to attend and play.


Throughout the school year, improv competitions are held at various Fairfax County Public Schools.  Typically, each school plays as a team and teams are awarded points for how well they play each improv game.  But, much like the TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway, the points and who wins doesn't really matter.  It's just a fun night of improv with students from all over Fairfax County. To compete on the MVHS Improv Team, students must be a part of our Improv Club.
