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 highlight interesting and unusual discoveries, play with patterns in a scene, and follow newly created logic to ridiculous or even too-true conclusions by playing to the top of their intelligence.
This course ends in a class share performance for an invited audience at Sea Tea Comedy Theater.
