Fundamentals of Improv Class

Posted 03 April 2017

This workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to feel the rush of improv comedy, and the confidence that comes from jumping into the unknown onstage. Chock-full of simple "take aways" that you can rely on every day, this light-hearted lab focuses on accepting the best of what’s right in front of you, finding humor without jokes, and what to do when your mind goes “blank.”

Sunday, May 21

1 - 4 p.m.
