Event Description

Wednesdays 6:30-9:30pm
16 Weeks

In this 16-week course that spans two-sessions, students will use improv to create material for an original sketch show. The culmination of skills and experiences learned in previous Arcade Academy classes along with skillful instructor direction, students will generate ideas through improvisation and then learn to refine those ideas into finished sketches. Using these sketches, participants will also get hands-on experience with all elements of putting-on a sketch show, including: acting skills, developing show order, utilizing props, developing ensemble rapore, marketing and production. Performance opportunities include both a work-in-progress show at the midway point and a fully formed sketch show at the end of the session with two-previews and two weekend mainstage productions.

Teacher: Larry Phillis
