Groundlings Treasure Hunters: Previews

Treasure Hunters Previews: Unfiltered and Unrefined

Los Angeles (June 24, 2019) – The characters that are created on stage at the Groundlings go on to see their own T.V. shows, movies, and late-night sketches. But they all start somewhere: preview shows. Starting June 29th, The Groundlings Main Cast starts previewing their new show “Groundlings Treasure Hunters” - working the sketches that will (or won’t) make it to the show’s full run starting July 13th.    

For four straight Saturdays at 10pm, audiences are invited to see the magic unfolded as characters and sketches are imagined for the first time on The Groundlings stage. Filled with outrageous moments that may end up on the cutting room floor – this is an experience for true fans of comedy to see the Main Company testing out wild new characters and pushing every possible sketch comedy boundary. It’s about to get real.


The cast includes Lauren Burns, Tony Cavalero, Chris Eckert, Julian Gant, Patty Guggenheim, Lyric Lewis and Emily Pendergast, directed by Ted Michaels.


Preview shows start this Friday June 29th – space is limited for this short run, so grab your tickets today.  


The Groundlings Theatre is located at 7307 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit or call (323) 934-4747
