Improv has long been considered “theatre of the people” and “the last bastion of counter-culture.” It has been used to write scripts for institutions like Second City and SNL. But, in recent years, improv has been used to improve communication in the workplace through corporate training and even heralded as an aid to improve brain function among at-risk teens and senior citizens. In this workshop, it doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned professional at improvisational acting or just curious how playing improv games might improve your life. We will all support each other and make each other look like geniuses as we jump into the barrel and play. And if we have too much fun, we might just do it again…..and again!
Ages 18 and up. (14-17 by audition only.)
This one-day workshop takes place on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 1:00-3:00 PM
