Improv for the Stage

Extend your skills in the joy and art of improvisation and step boldly onstage. [For those who have completed the beginner course or have other relevant experience].

Description

Laugh, play characters, get them into trouble (and out again) and see how your skills translate into confident performance.

This is the W.I.T. Level 2 course and will take your improv that next step beyond the confidence-building of our Joy of Improv, and on into collaborative spontaneous theatre creation.

Suitable for those who have completed a foundation course either with W.I.T or another improv troupe or have some theatrical experience or training.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to: 

• Create characters and stories in open scenes
• Play and perform several classic improv games
• Stay positive and enjoy failure
• Use improvisation terminology to discuss story, character, comedy, theatre and think about performance (your own and others)

The course will end with a show for invited friends and family.

[This is a physical activity that involves an element of risk.  While all possible measures are taken to prevent accidents or injury, please note that participation is at your own risk].
