Vintage Improv Festival
Vintage Improv is improv focused on the talents, needs and interests of mature improvisers over the age of 50. While there are a small number of professional improvisers that fall in this category, the vast majority of Vintage Improvisers are people who have discovered their passion for Improv later in life.
The Vintage Improv Festival started as part of the Boston Improv Festival in 2018. In 2019 VIF expanded and became its own entity. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the VIF to go virtual in 2020 and 2021, but it rebounded in 2022 to host an in-person festival for a limited number of participants in the Essex Woods retreat area.
Miki Manting is the director of the Vintage Improv Festival.
