Sorry I forgot to include this in the last email. If you can email the correction out in your next email, I would greatly appreciate it :)
Are you a fan of the TV show “Whose Line is it Anyway?” or the theatre group “Second City”? Have you ever wanted to give improvisational theatre a try? If so, this is the workshop for you! Improvisational theatre, improv for short, is theatre without a script where players create a character and scene on the spot. In this one day workshop, students will learn the basic rules of improv theatre and play improv theatre games. Through this medium of theatre, students will develop communication skills, work as a team, and step out of their comfort zone in a safe learning environment. Whether you are a seasoned performer or a newbie to theatre, all skill levels are welcome. Limited space available for each session.
