Learn to create completely improvised comedy scenes and characters by working with others!

Students in this class will learn to really listen to their scene partners, add interesting specifics & details, and progress & expand improvised scenes. We'll use short, fast-paced improv games to learn to act quickly and spend less time worrying about making the perfect move. Invent and inspire rich and consistent characters, and learn to create a playable environment with just miming. This course ends in a share performance for an invited audience at Sea Tea Comedy Theater.
