About the Workshops
11 am – 1:30 pm Scene work assault | Sometimes in improv scenes “play fast” and “listen” aren’t the best of friends. This workshop will focus on techniques you can use to play with force without being a ball hog.
2:30 pm – 5 pm Playing the show to win | Listening to your scene partner is easy a simple concept. What about listening to your show partners? Our job isn’t over when our scene ends, we have to keep playing the show.
