Improv for Everyone


For anyone interested in laughing, playing, connecting, and refreshing their spirit.

It’s not just making things up on the spot, but the joy of connecting with others and creating something new! Explore the joy of improv and reconnect with new players with this “all play” workshop.

Participants will:

  • Review improv basics like listening, offering/acceptance, and “Yes, And.”
  • Explore short-form improv games that explore comedic characters, heightening and
  • Breakdown tools of improv scene work like tag outs, edits and walk-ons.

This workshop is perfect for those looking to try improv for the first time, and for improvisers who’ve taken classes before and are looking for time to play, connect and refresh their skills.

Instructor: TBD
