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?

Cost: $199

Saturday afternoons
from 3PM to 6PM

Using the fast-paced energy of short-form improv, students will learn how to explore and manipulate the game of the scene.

This course ends in a share performance for an invited audience.

This course is one of Sea Tea Improv’s 3 Foundation-level adult improv courses: this course, focused on the concept of game in improv, “The Scene” (last offered in Spring/Winter 2013), and “The Character” (last offered in Fall 2012).

Prerequisite: None. People with no improv experience will learn basics and more, and people with some improv experience will benefit from this course’s specific attention to the topic of “The Game”.

Get a Clue Tours: Solve a Mystery in Mark Twain's House
The hour-long tours step off every 15 minutes.

Like the stately home where a murder takes place in the classic Parker Brothers/Hasbro game CLUE, the Mark Twain House has a Conservatory, a Dining Room, a Library, even secret passages...all the elements for a live-action mystery involving the characters Mark Twain invented there.

Was it Tom Sawyer in the Library with the Wrench? Merlin in the Billiard Room with the Knife? The Pauper in the Kitchen with the Rope?

In a parody inspired by the great original game, a full-fledged murder mystery will be laid out for visitors to solve during The Mark Twain House & Museum's "Get a Clue" Tour, Saturday, March 9. The one-hour experience provokes fun, intrigue and hilarity among visitors.

The 1874 home's opulent chambers become possible murder scenes in this classic challenge of deductive reasoning and detective skill. In a special one-hour tour, visitors will be able to make accusations and figure out who sent "Pap" Finn -- Huck Finn's drunken, abusive father -- to his doom. And where he was dispatched. And what was used to dispose of the scoundrel.

Moving from room to room in the mysterious gloom of evening, probing dark corners of the house (magnifying glasses optional), visitors will get clues to help them in their detection and make their guesses. Finally, in a stunning reveal, all will become clear and the perpetrator unmasked.

Members of Hartford's beloved, hilarious Sea Tea Improv comedy troupe portray the suspects, who are based on famous literary characters Twain created in the very house where the mystery unfolds.

Tickets are $20 ($16 for members); $13 for children 16 and under. 860-280-3130

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?

$5 per person
