Welcome to Emerald Chronicles

Character. Genre. Improv!

Welcome! This is the home site for Emerald Chronicles, the largest and longest running genre based live action improvisational immersion theatre troupe west of the Mississippi. 

What does all that mean? It means we build character, explore settings within generes with our peers, and enjoy the fascinating and unlimited entertainment potential that only live interaction can accomplish. Comedy, drama, horror, adventure, mystery, suspense, we've got it all, live and interactive!

We do all of this with the community at large in mind.


This isn't your father's role-playing troupe or traditional improv group. The fictional characters you'll create at Emerald Chronicles are only one part of your experience with us. We're building a community within our communities and we're looking for your creativity and help.

We immerse ourselves in the craft that allows us to have fun and invent fanciful creatures, places and characters while simultaneously stepping outside of our fun to address the needs of the greater world around us together.

Entertaining characterization within, strong character without.

This is why Emerald Chronicles has partnered with and generously donated time and needed items to:




Community building and community outreach: It builds character, and so do we!

Unlike traditional open improv, our troupe is constrained by genre. Genres include gothic fantasy, mystic dystopia, horror punk and more! These contstraints allow us to build a fictional Seattle landscape full of frightening wonder and majestic darkness full of heroes and anti-heroes brought to life for fun by our troupe.

This is something new. This is something different. If you are a theatre person looking to explore character within a framework of supportive fun, or a game enthusiast looking to step away from the console, computer or kitchen table and out into the lively world of genre improv role-play, we offer more for-fun supportive immersion than you've seen before.

Intrigue and fascination, politics and prestidigitation, action and reaction. Nothing is more challenging and more limitlessly fascinating that improvisational theatre, and it's sister discipline, role-playing. At Emerald Chronicles, we invite you to come out of your shell and step into a character you make, in a world we've all helped to build.

Leave the day-to-day worries of life behind and join a supportive, friendly cast of people who just like you love to explore the fascinating landscapes associated with our many genres, then come back to earth and settle into to community events like group movie outings, BBQ's and other community activities that are built around relaxing with friends or join us in supporting local charities.
