Heck yes fest workshops


Heck Yes Fest 2 will be a blowout performance highlighting all the comedy skills we have in our arsenal: sketch, stand-up, film, and improv. Students will develop their writing, performing, and teamwork skills as they work together over the month-long workshop to create a GIANT show during Hell Yes Fest, the Gulf South's largest comedy festival. And as a special treat, the kids will be joined onstage by young mega-comic Saffron Herndon! It’s gonna be HUGE!

Heck Yes Fest Workshop Series

Want to attend & perform, but need some financial aid?

In order to make our programming accessible to students of all income levels, TNM is proud to offer a limited number of Comedy Uprising scholarships In the future, we hope these scholarships will be created in part with grant funding, but at our current stage, our scholarships are funded entirely out-of-pocket from the theater and by the generous donations of our supporters who think kids and comedy make a good combo.

Don’t have a kid, but want to sponsor one?

The cost of a full scholarship for this Heck Yes Fest program is $40, but you can donate anything you'd like. We're attempting to raise enough to offer six full scholarships, but we're happy with whatever you can afford to give.


We also accept donations via Venmo @ 'TheNewMovement' or Paypal us @paypal.me/thenewmovement. Let’s team up on this and make these kids feel like rock stars!
