Our mad-capped troupe laughs at the idea of needing scripts! All they need are their fast wits and their fellow performers. This is a high-energy band of performers who discover that, through hidden structures, they can create any hilarious scene from any audience suggestion - even about things they have not heard of before!
Nothing builds self-trust and confidence better than improvisation. It is great for players in our big productions for they learn nothing really goes wrong during a show. Every seeming error is an opportunity to create a new part of the show. And it is great for actors who don't have the patience for learning lines and prefer to just leap head-on into the unknown.
Improv performers will work on:
- Short-form comedy improvisation (comedy)
- Long-form comedy improvisation (creating entire stories that can last up to a half hour)
- Audience interaction
- How to combine voice, body and emotion into dynamic performances
- Confidence in creativity
- How to work together as part of an ensemble
Students will create an Improv Showcase that will highlight the skills they've learned and the fun we've had in class! The number of showcases and when they occur are decided by each class each season.
