Hanging with Harold - Weekly Drop-In Jam
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a learn-by-doing drop-in jam where Sea Tea Improv and members of the improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) perform a kind of longform improv together known as the Harold.

Will you be among the first improvisers to reach 100 completed Harolds?

Sea Tea Improv's Longform Showcase feat. Starla!
Give us a single word, and watch fully improvised sets unfold before your eyes.

Every Longform Showcase features the Sea Tea Improv Ensemble, a killer guest group, and a one-night-only team.

This month's special guest is Starla from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island!

Starla is Brown University's first exclusively long-form improv troupe. They have performed in colleges around the northeast, and alumni have gone on to perform in house teams at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in NYC.

[Workshop] Premise Initiation with Terry Withers
Register for this workshop: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/workshop-premise-initiation-with-terry-withers-registration-31114788169

Participants will be introduced to and drill the Premise Keepers format, identifying comedic premises in a modified Pattern Game opening and then shooting directly into scenes.

The base reality will be left to improv, but the central comedic ideas of scenes will have already been selected.

About the Instructor: Terry Withers hails from New York where he performed improv routinely at the UCB Theatre (The Terry Withers Mysteries, Fuck That Shit, Dark Days) and the Reckless Theatre (The New David Mamet Play). Terry began his formal improv instruction at the UCB and Magnet traning centers in 2007, studying under Zach Woods, Joe Wengert, Armando Diaz, Kevin & Will Hines, Charlie Todd and Chris Gethard. He began coaching in 2009 and was fortunate to coach fantastic teams like Sandino (which he later joined) and Secret Man Group (which refused to add him even though he asked). He served as a teacher at UCB’s Training Center for over three years and has taught workshops for Chinese Menu in DC. Terry is also a big fan of professional basketball and will frequently compare it to improv. If you take a class with him, see if you notice him do that.

David Mamet's "The New David Mamet Play"
A Hilarious Spoof of A Modern Classic!

Comedic Improvisers Hunter Nelson & Terry Withers are veteran performers and teachers at some of the most notable improv comedy institutions in the country, including the UCB Theatre, Magnet Theatre, Baltimore Improv Group & Reckless Theatre.

While they insist David Mamet has retained them to workshop his newest, ever changing script, audiences are certain they make up each "workshop" as they go. And nothing could delight them more than the improvised madness these two pros deliver, always in a pitch perfect tone matching Mr. Mamet's more famous works.
