Event Description

Thursdays 6:30pm – 9:30pm

Building on previous concepts of scenework and game, Improv 201 focuses on short form improv. We’ll be delving into a variety of different performance games including character-based games, justification games, guessing games, gimmick games, and line games, teaching students how to master the mechanics of each and apply their scene work skills for successful gameplay. Students will gain valuable experience in short form improv mechanics—fundamental skills for any well-rounded improviser.
