Specialty Drop-in Workshops

Speciality Drop-Ins


Drop-In class

Instructor: Lindsay Mullan
Cost: $5 per person
Skill level: beginner & intermediate

Join us for a weekly improv workshop that is inspired by the style and teachings of improvisational theatre pioneer Keith Johnstone. This class focuses on short form narrative structure, status, emotional reactions, short form games, and grounded acting. Students will also learn to embrace failure, be obvious, actively listen onstage, connect with individuals in the audience, connect with their fellow performers, and access their inner sense of play and charm. This workshop is perfect for beginners and intermediate performers alike.
