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.

"You'll have to do about a hundred Harolds to start feeling comfortable with the form." - Matt Besser, founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade

We will keep track of the cumulative number of Harolds done by each participant from week to week. Each week, we will do 1, 2 or 3 Harolds (time depending), and everyone who participates will add to their Harold total toward everyone's personal goal of 100 completed Harolds.

Who will be first to reach 100 Harolds completed?

The Game (4-week, 8-class adult improv comedy class) begins!
The Game (Foundation-Level Improv Course)

Instructor: Laura Manasewich
Cost: $199

Saturday evenings (4pm to 7pm) & Monday evenings (6:30pm to 9:30pm) starting November 16, 2013

Using the fast-paced energy of short-form improv, students will learn how to explore and manipulate the game of the scene. Players will understand how to find and play patterns within the game, manipulate and heighten the suggestion of the game and to play to the top of their intelligence. This course ends in a share performance for an invited audience.

Beat of the Street & Sea Tea Improv-- a Fundraiser for Homelessness
Sea Tea Improv has had such a good time working with Beat of the Street-- a group of folks who are homeless, formerly homeless, or supporters of those struggling against homelessness-- that we've decided to put on a show with them!

Sea Tea will perform one of its legendary "Whose Line Is It Anyway"-style shows, but for the first time ever, will integrate our students from Beat of the Street & The Center for Creative Learning into the show. We are so excited to join these two creative, collaborative, and generous forces of Hartford together.

Sea Tea Improv has been teaching improv comedy to Beat on the Street and would love to welcome you to a show that will raise funds for this awesome program, just as we head into winter.

The fundraiser will be $10 at the door and begin at 7:30 at Charter Oak Cultural Center.

100% of proceeds will go to the Center for Creative Learning, a service that provides free classes for the Hartford homeless community. BOTS staff and other community members have developed a curriculum that provides people with skills that will help them find employment and enrich their lives.

Classes take place twice a week and offers participants a bag lunch as well as a safe, warm place to go when homeless shelters close during the day. The Center for Creative learning needs funds for staff, food, and coffee. When it comes to hot beverages, Sea Tea is obviously dedicated to helping out!

Tuesday, November 26th in the evening at Charter Oak Cultural Center. After the show, enjoy light refreshments and meet the students and improvisers yourself. Don't miss it!
