Secret City Improv Festival Launches Kickstarter Fundraising Campaign

Secret City Improv Festival launches Kickstarter Fundraising

East Tennessee’s only improv festival is fundraising through crowdfunding campaign

Oak Ridge, TN – July 2022 – The Secret City Improv Festival is seeking additional
fundraising through the crowdfunding site Kickstarter. The Secret City Improv Festival will
be featuring 18 professional improv troupes from across America and 5 area high schools at
Oak Ridge’s Historic Grove Theater.

An innovative program for high-school students to hone their creativity, leadership potential,
and problem-solving skills in a fun, funny, dynamic, and supportive manner will debut at the
second annual Secret City Improv Festival in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, on October 1, 2022.
The program, called the Slayden Intensives, will be led by professional improv instructors.
High-school students will have one day to prepare and perform their own comedy improv
show in front of a live audience at the Festival. The intensives are being offered to the
participating schools at no cost. This program is a first of its kind and is unique to the Secret
City Improv Festival. The students’ performances will be held on October 1st during the 5:00
p.m. and 7:00 p.m. shows at the Grove Theater in Oak Ridge. Both shows will be suitable for
all ages.

“Fundraising has not been as strong as it was last year,” said Festival Director Aaron
Campbell. “We are closing in on the end of this festival period, and we are behind on
fundraising goals putting the Slayden Intensives at risk.” continued Campbell. “Partnering
with Kickstarter to bring attention to our mission is vital to keeping the Slayden Intensives
free for the participating schools.”

The festival has made it very easy to contribute and is offering perks for all contribution
levels from being featured as a contributor on their website to free passes and workshops for
contributions at different levels. The campaign on Kickstarter is all or nothing. This project
will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Tue, August 30 2022 11:59 PM EDT. To reach the
Kickstarter page visit, www.secretcityimprovfest.com/kickstarter. Local companies are invited
to sponsor the Slayden Intensives or the Secret City Improv Festival visit,
