Founded in 1995, Dad's Garage is an award-winning non-profit theatre company that brings in over 30,000 people a year at our new Ezzard Street home in Atlanta's historic Old Fourth Ward, public events across the continent, and festivals around the globe. Each season features original plays and world premieres created by our artistic family. While just about everyone in the artistic group at Dad's is an improv comic, the artists also write, direct, design, and perform in our scripted shows and write, perform, direct, and edit pieces for DGTV, our YouTube channel. We support the creation of new and experimental works that travel around the country and transform the careers of their creators.
Dad's Garage is a key partner in demonstrating and training in improvisation techniques, which includes training in "Yes, and", mirroring, and storytelling. These skills can be used by paid and informal caregivers to help them be more present in the moment and thus improve communication skills when supporting persons living with dementia. Dad's Garage offers small workshops for 5-25 people and can accommodate large group events from 26-300 people.
