Writing Through Improvisation
Writing Through Improvisation:
6 Weeks Saturdays Starting May 9th  June 13th  3pm  5pm
This course is a study of improvisation as it relates to sketch comedy.  Students will work individually, in small groups, and as an ensemble to experience the process of using improvisation to generate sketch comedy material for the stage (heavy focus will be placed on scenic structure). In addition, students will be required to write sketches outside of class.
