Four Day Weekend introduced the art of improvisational comedy to Fort Worth in February 1997. Four Day Weekend was scheduled for a limited six-week run at Casa Manana's Theater on the Square. The show quickly garnered critical acclaim and a growing audience. No one could have guessed the limited engagement would become the longest-running show in Fort Worth's history.
After only one year, Four Day Weekend outgrew Casa's Theater. The troupe packed up their props and three black chairs and moved into the beautiful Caravan of Dreams Theater. Although the new venue was more than twice the size of their previous digs, Four Day Weekend was soon selling out their new theater on a consistent basis. When the Caravan of Dreams closed its doors in 2001, they were offered the opportunity to take over the theater, thus the Four Day Weekend Theater was born.
Having performed more than 2,000 shows, Four Day Weekend has become a Fort Worth institution. Audiences know that every weekend they can catch a glimpse of tomorrow's television and film stars right in their own backyard. More than 250,000 people have attended the show and that number is still growing.
