In this introduction-level class, students will be introduced to the core concepts of musical improv over 8 weeks, culminating in a performance showcase for friends and family.
You'll learn the basics of writing comedic sketches, focusing on rapid idea generation and collaboration. This hands-on and practical approach allows you to get an idea from your head to the stage in as few steps as possible, because the only way to really know if an idea works is to try it out and get feedback. You'll practice writing sketches in different formats - including character, commercial parodies, and topical sketches. Students will be expected to write sketches outside of class.
