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 main-stage ensemble. By combining risk taking with fast thinking, improv classes make interesting dates or help chronic jaywalkers construct more believable alibis.
Workshops are Sundays – 7pm to 9pm
Cost: $10 a class. Drop-ins welcome. No experience needed. Please pay at the bar.
