This workshop is geared toward the basics of improvisation. In it, we’ll focus on on using the fundamental improv tenet of “Yes, And” to expand scenes through building ensemble work and “group mind” with an emphasis on patterns and character building. No improv experience is necessary! Whether you’re new to the game or a seasoned pro, this workshop is a great opportunity for anyone to strengthen their comedic skill set.

And when you’re done learning the ropes, see Two Broken Girls Preform live in the Kum and Go Theatre – buy tickets HERE!
