Course Description

Open to adults of all experience levels, from beginner to advanced. Learn skills and techniques to effortlessly perform unscripted, made-up-on-the-spot material -- often resulting in hilarity. John McKenna has studied and performed improv comedy for over twelve years and has taught it for more than eight. This class will give special attention to scene work and character-driven scenes.

A little background on improv:

Short form improv uses lots of games in performance. A long-form show is a bit different. Typically, in a long form show, the actors will get a suggestion from the audience, possibly a word or a location, and then the actors will perform a series of scenes, sometimes interconnected by theme or by characters. A typical long-form set will run between 20 and 40 minutes.
