The Headliner

Founded in 1985, the Purple Crayon of Yale is the oldest collegiate long form group in the country. Over breaks, the Purple Crayon goes on a fall and spring tour to a different city around the country. This spring we are headed down the East Coast to the lovely Southern Pines, North Carolina doing shows and workshops at schools and improv theaters along the way!

Through April 1, every dollar you donate to WIT will be DOUBLED thanks to a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Make a gift during your check-out process.
