Special Topic: The Harold

The Harold

In Level 4, students will put all of the knowledge and skills obtained in the previous levels to work on stage as they form a full-fledged Harold team. In 8 weekly sessions, students will experiment with different openings and group games, heighten their scene work across three beats, play with various themes and editing techniques and develop as a cohesive ensemble performing the classic longform format:  The Harold.

This class culminates in a showcase performance, where students demonstrate what they’ve learned before a supportive audience of family, friends and fellow improvisers.
