Comedy improv is the art of plugging audience suggestions into scenes and theater games. This supportive and nurturing workshop consists of warm-ups, skill building theater games, followed by playing the performance games themselves. The results are often hilarious, or at least always interesting. Side effects include laughter and camaraderie as well as limber minds and muscles. Experienced improvisers and the newly curious are welcome! The final class will be a show for friends and family. |
