Improv comedy show benefits Promise Place


Promise Place, a nonprofit agency serving victims of domestic violence, is hosting its annual improv comedy benefit, “Promise You’ll Laugh,” in connection with “Teen Dating Violence Awareness” month, February.

The event is set for The Legacy Theatre in Tyrone on Friday and Saturday, Feb.20 and 21. A professional group from Whole World Improv Theatre in Atlanta will entertain the audience with 100 percent of the proceeds directly benefiting Promise Place.

Last year’s inaugural “Promise You’ll Laugh” event sold out in advance so the group is offering two nights to catch a show this year. Both shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:45 p.m.

Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door. For tickets, contact Wendi Bozeman at (770) 461-3839 ext. 112 or at Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Promise Place educates more than 3,000 teens each year on how to avoid abusive relationships by recognizing danger signs, the different types of abuse, as well as how to help someone they know is being abused.

Promise Place serves victims of domestic violence and their children in Fayette, Pike, Spalding and Upson counties.
