Makeshift Up

Makeshift Up is Northwest Indiana’s premier short-form/medium form improv team. Their brand of improv is performing ‘theatre without a script’; they strive to use the same skills and tools used in scripted productions in their improvised scenes and games all the while making audiences laugh.  The shows involve interesting characters, great scenes, and memorable performances all based on audience suggestion. They perform throughout Northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area. Makeshift Up is available for corporate functions and team building exercises.
