Improvisational Theater Troupe
Informally known as “the Archuckle Fellows” the Improvisational Theater Troupe is a Stanford-GSB-specific organization open to the entire Stanford community.

Activities include weekly improv practice sessions, which are open to all students on campus and available to all experience levels, including no experience. During the practice sessions, a series of improv games are played with the leaders of the session highlighting successful improv behavior and reinforcing general improv ideas, creating a very strong learning culture. Practices typically occur once a week. Activities also include quarterly shows, which are free shows for entertaining students and faculty members.
