The Improvised Play — Narrative Improv Class

Dive into the world of spontaneous storytelling with The Improvised Play. In this 8-week advanced level workshop, you will learn how to create surprising and compelling narratives, learn to think faster on your feet, collaborate with fellow performers and craft memorable characters and plot lines in the moment that will delight your audience and leave them convinced you had it planned all along!

The first six weeks will be a regular class setting, while the final two weeks will be directed rehearsals, where you will review shows with the instructor and further bolster your narrative and rehearsal skills.

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