Doing improv, like committing a crime of passion or solving geometric proofs while running a marathon, requires that you can think on your feet. Render your mind more dexterous with today’s Groupon to Capitol City Theater. Classes are held each Thursday evening. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get one improv-comedy class for two people (a $20 value).
- For $10, you get two consecutive improv-comedy classes for one (a $20 value).
- For $18, you get four consecutive improv-comedy classes for one (a $40 value).
Capitol City Theater’s trained improvisers pass down years of stage-earned experience during improvisational-comedy workshops. Fears about performing in public evaporate during two-hour classes as pupils invent scenes and play games that require them to act without scripts or the telepathic connection to William Shakespeare’s ghost that guides most actors. During workshops, students master the basic tenets of improvisational comedy, such as saying “yes, and…” to everything, and take the first step toward joining Capitol City Theater’s company of players and its main-stage ensemble. By combining risk taking with fast thinking, improv classes make interesting dates or help chronic jaywalkers construct more believable alibis.
