WORKSHOPS

“From a teacher’s point of view I just want to say thank you for providing my high school students with their first steps over the bridge to the world of professional improv. This has been an excellent opportunity for them to see themselves as performers outside of the high school setting and I’ve seen a real jump in their self-confidence and professionalism. I just want you to know that the gifts an event like this gives kids can last their whole lives. Thanks again!”

Dorothy Palmer, Teacher, Pine Ridge S.S

This workshop will encourage the actor / improviser to explore their potential to create character for improvisational performance. Participants in this one day intensive will learn new techniques for character development and gain understanding of how to rely on your characters while improvising. How far can your character go in performance? What kind of amazing stories can they tell? Let’s find out.
