Advanced Format Workshop

Location: Shetler Studios

Price: $50

Format: The Evente

Experience: Advanced

Anyone can do a Montage or an Armando but what about the Pretty Little Flower or the Macroscene? What about Harold splinters such as the Evente or Tracers? Or even the more experimental formats such as the Betrayal or the Glen.  Each workshop will focus on a specific format, which by the time you're done, you will be able to perform and help make your group stand out from the rest of the groups performing the same old traditional formats.

Lets Get Serious

Location: Shetler Studios

Price: $30

Experience needed: None

After many years of teaching intro classes I noticed a pattern of new improvisers caring more about being the funniest person in the room instead of focusing on the actual tools that help every improviser succeed. So with this workshop we will remove the comedy and just focus on the fundamentals of good scene work.  This workshop is geared for both beginners and veterans who want to refresh on the standards.

The Opening

Experience Needed: Intermediate

Do you struggle to pull strong ideas from your openings? Ditch those tired, cliché openings and work on openings to make your group stand out.  Learn techniques to pull clear ideas from your openings that you can put directly into your scene work.  We will work with a variety of conventional and unconventional openings (Documentary, Invocation, Follow the follower, Painting, and The Organic) and pull ideas straight into scene work to connect it all.
