Event Description

Wednesdays 6:30pm – 9:30pm

This new four-week class will cover everything it takes to bring a comedy sketch from the page to the stage. Each student will develop their script into a produced sketch, learning how to work with actors, how to use props and costumes to enhance their sketch (even on a tight budget), and how to work with stage managers for seamless tech. The class will work with our team of veteran sketch producer instructors to understand how a complete sketch show comes together. The class will have a showcase performance of their produced sketches on the Arcade Mainstage on Friday, June 24.

Dates: Wednesdays June 1–22 6:30-9:30PM, Class show Friday June 24 8:00PM

Instructor: Robin Hitchcock with guest sketch production experts including Frank McDade and Aaron Tarnow
