Program Description


Over the course of this workshop, actors will work to hone their ensemble skills and learn the basics of improvisaton and sketch comedy. Students will work on mastering 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. Students who have participated in Improv and Sketch can return to the class and continue to build and develop their skills.

On December 12th, there will be an invited share during class time. It will be an opportunity for the ensemble to share and perform what they have been working on with their families.
