Hope and Wonder Theater Classes For Adults

Theater Games and Improvisation at The Woodland in 3rd Floor Studio B
Tuesdays from 6pm-7pm
Ages: 18 years or older 
$125 for 6 weeks starting September 24

This class is for Adults who want to act by improvising. Ever wanted to have the quick wit of comedians on stage, or wanted to be able to think on your feet better, or just want to relax and have fun?  Then Improv is your ticket. Anyone can learn to improvise! In a safe and fun environment we teach these skills using theatre games and improvisation techniques. Students will learn the basics of comedy improvisation and they’ll enhance other skills too such as impromptu speaking skills, listening skills, and being in the moment.

Natalie Picoe, Artistic Director of Hope & Wonder Theater Classes, and master improvisor Joe De Gise II will be teaching both sets of these classes.
