Where: Downstairs studio at 104 Russell St (Rt. 9) in Hadley
PREREQUISITES (Intermediate/Advanced workshop): Completion of Zen of Improv 3 or the equivalent at another improv comedy school.
Learn techniques to create distinct characters with staying power! Invest in memorable characters for your Long Form sets that can be sustained in a single scene, taken on a tag-run, or easily called back in a piece. Discover the ways to reveal character relationships without using heavy-handed initiations. Improvisers will be guided through the exploration of short/long-form improv skill exercises to engage their sense of play and to inspire performers to make bold character choices on stage.
