Adult Improv Class at Tyler Civic Theatre presented by Card 53 Comedy's Jamey Whitley.
Actors will learn the foundations of improvisation to help them hone their characters, improve their listening skills, learn to react truthfully and to trust their instincts. The basis of the class is built on the principle of "yes and". The "yes and" principle will be explored while learning to establish a base reality at the beginning of a scene to provide an environment where the "truth in comedy" can then be explored. The class will consist of several exercises and improv games necessary to create an improvised scene.
This course on the basics of improvisational comedy will meet Saturday, September 7 starting Noon.
Class is designed for ages 17+ and is great for the working actor, the business professional, or the introvert looking to get out of their comfort zone.
Cost is $50.00
