WHY: Improvisational skills are vital to any performer, and you don’t have to be funny to participate. Believe it or not, improv does not stress being funny. Improv hones your listening and reacting skills as well as your creative thinking skills. No matter your theatrical role, the ability to improv is a great skill to add to your theatrical bag of tricks! Also, this is a great way to prepare for PPT’s annual murder mystery dinner!
WHO: The workshops will be led by Jennifer Thompson who trained at ImprovOlympic under the brilliance of Charna Halpern, Del Close, Neil Flynn, and Adam McKay (look them up, they’re pretty cool). While there, she was a part of several teams and served as a production coordinator for the acclaimed house team, The Family. Jennifer has performed in theatres across the stateline and is thrilled to bring this experience to Pec Playhouse.
Be sure to reserve your spot quickly! Cost will be $20.
