IMPROV COMEDY

Have you ever wanted to learn how to improv?

The Guild’s Improv Workshop can get you started!

 

With decades of improv experience between them, instructors Graham Putnam and Rob MacDonald will guide you through this fun and rewarding 10-week Improv Workshop designed for those with little-to-no improv or acting experience and those who would like to refresh their skills.

You’ll learn the very Basics of Improvisation, plus explore fundamentals like Advancing The Scene, Character Development, Object Work (like holding that imaginary cup of coffee while you’re in a scene), Creating an Environment, and of course, Always Always Always Having Fun!!

 

Classes will be held Tuesdays, May 11-June 22, at The Guild, from 7pm-8:30pm weekly!

Meet Our Instructors!
