Groups of approximately 10 students hone their off-the-cuff humor under the tutelage of experienced players. Classes will be scheduled based on demand, with four-week courses meeting for two hours once a week and tentatively set to start around the beginning of each month. The book included in this option will be signed by Charna Halpern. Improv classes teach students to think on their feet and can translate into honing professional communication and public-speaking skills.
Improvolution’s motto is “live funny, die laughing,” and although it’s a slightly edgy sentiment, the troupe promises that its shows are clean enough for kindergarteners, grandparents, and everyone in between. The crew, whose managing director is also a regular cast member, regularly stages evenings of short-form comedy at their new venue or at business and birthday functions. Continual audience interaction and occasional wacky props produce a stream of new inspirations for the performers as they build quick scenes or even stage a rap video at a moment’s notice. The troupe also spearheads workshops in the art, helping aspiring actors flex their adlibbing abilities and audiences break through debilitating suggestion-shouting blocks.
