Improvisational theatre is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up in the moment. Improvisers will often take a suggestion from the audience, or rely on some other means of inspiration to get started. In this workshop learn the basics of improv through exciting games and exercises! In Improv anything goes- no experience is required! Audience members, actors, non-actors, all levels welcome. Ages 16 and up! Join us for some unscripted fun!
