Level 1 Class – Mondays

Welcome to the formal program of improvisational training! Whether you want to perform, be better at team work or presentation for your job, or just be more engaged with your friends and family, this is the place to start!

In this course, we’ll jump into the beautiful world of “Yes, And” and study beginning fundamentals like basic games and the advantages of collaborative group work. We’ll enjoy exercises, talk basic theory, dive into basic scenework, push through object & environment, and establish the importance of relationship and truth onstage – and have an incredible amount of fun, getting away with pretending as adults.

Mondays from 6:30-9:00pm
Nov 6, 13, 20, 27, Dec 4, 11

 

Level 2 Class – Mondays

In Level 2, we will begin using the idea of group play. Whether it is via shortform games (playing with pattern, heightening, pouncing on the fun), longform openings (group work, exploration of one theme together), or scenes (game of the scene), we will understand the importance of utilizing our power together and play with rather than against. Character work, both by mirroring and complementing, is also pushed in this level.

Mondays from 6:30-9:00pm
Nov 6, 13, 20, 27, Dec 4, 11

Level 3 Class – Tuesdays

Level 3 digs deep into scene work. The relationship between the characters on stage is the most important part of the scene. Get ready to focus on two-person scenes and explore multiple ways to lock into the heart of things.

Pre-requisite: Level Two

Schmollcats: This matinee is your first glimpse at the latest group to go through our Advance Musical Improv training. Improvised scenes with improvised songs! Come check it out! Music by David Schmoll.

HERE the Musical 9/9 9:00pm

September 9th 9pm $10 online*/ $12 at the door

HERE the Musical is a feat of improvisation – a two person, fully improvised musical play. The players get one suggestion to inspire theme through an opening number, create characters and storylines inspired by the theme, and effortlessly weave the strings together to discover one piece. Not one ounce of music has been pre-conceived before the show begins. Music improvised by David Schmoll!

Opening for HERE will be our Level 4 graduation show.

*online sales end at 6pm day of show. Walk-up and SRO tickets may still be available after that time.

Level 4 Class – Tuesdays

Time to put all that prior work into practice. We’ll learn the structure of basic longforms like Armando (Storyteller), Montage/Commando, Shotgun, Bat, Monoscene, Beer Shark Mice, and WeirdAss. Rather than covering up our lousy scenework with a complex format, we’ll push our good scenework as to not get lost inside the construct of each form.

Not only that, but this level culminates in a Student Show!

Pre-requisite: Level Three

Tuesdays from 6:30-9:00pm
Aug 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, Sep 5
