IMPROV WORKSHOP FOR TEENS
SATURDAYS 15 NOV TO 12 DEC 10AM-12PM

This introductory improvisation course for teenagers is a fast paced, exciting class that aims to give participants a solid grounding in the different contemporary styles of improv’ that dominate the writing, acting and comedy world today. Each week you’ll play games and explore a challenging variety of improv exercises that unleash your natural creativity and humour.

Theatresports™ is improvised theatre entertainment played as a spectator sport. Teams of players invent scenes from suggestions they are given, while following particular sets of rules we call “games”. Everything is made up on the spot; the lights, music, dialogue, mime and song. The teams are judged on their ability to follow the rules of each game, deliver a cohesive story line and entertain the audience.

Our aim is to work with small groups of committed, talented teenagers on developing their acting and improv skills, with a view to performing in the Middle Easts first ever Inter School Theatresports Tournament towards the beginning of 2015!
