Current & Upcoming Classes

All Class Dates and Times are California Time (PDT)

The Improvised Play

Sold Out! - This class will work towards creating fully improvised 30 minute plays. Rather than focusing on the tropes of specific genres we will focus on acting and basic dramatic structure. As in a monoscene the comedy will come from clear character Games but these multi-scene plays will also be built around the characters’ objectives, obstacles and actions. Although the plays will almost always be funny we’ll make emotional honesty and commitment the priority. The class will culminate with us improvising two mind-blowing one-act plays live on YouTube. Some outside of class preparation will be required.

Starting Tue May 18 3pm for 6 weeks

The Slacker

Sold Out! - 'The Slacker' is a format where improvisers only use tag-outs to transition to new scenes. Great for improvisers who want to work on comedic timing, quickly identifying 'the game of the scene', world building, heightening, and fully exploring the notion of "if this is true, what else is true".
