Not enough to do this summer? How about spending a few weeks at RAAC Community Theatre learning about improvisation?
Wednesday evenings July 13 to August 17 (six sessions), RCHS drama teacher Russell Paulette (with assistance from RAAC Community Theatre member Patty Hardee) will lead you through fun and energetic improv exercises and games.
Improv is a versatile skill — writers use improv to develop characters and plot, people afraid of public speaking use improv to learn to think better on their feet, actors use improv to understand their characters’ motivations. But most people do improv just to have fun. (And you’ll have insight into how they do what they do on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” Who wouldn’t want to know that?)
You don’t have to be an actor or even be funny. The exercises and games are designed to help you progress at your own comfort level.
Please come join us. We think you’ll have fun. And the more people there are, the funner it is.
The series runs 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays, July 13–August 17, at RAAC Community Theatre, 310 Gay St., Washington (Russell will extend the sessions by two weeks for participants interested in giving a public performance. That is totally optional.) Cost is $50 for the six sessions ($10 for students), due at the first session. Dress comfortably and be ready to move.
