Outdoor Theater Program
Over the course of this workshop, actors will work to hone their ensemble skills and learn the basics of improvisation and sketch comedy. Students will master multiple improv games and use their learning as a lens in examining the world they are creating and inhabiting in their social lives. We will pay special attention to encouraging and engaging each voice in “the room” to be heard throughout the process. We will generate ideas, create situations and settings, identify absurdities, write and perform our own sketches and bring them to hilarious conclusions.
The workshop will culminate in an outdoor, socially distanced share for families.
