Extreme Yes! with Jaime Moyer

This workshop is for the ladies only, sorry fellas! We will work on strong initiations, committing to characters, and extreme “yes, and!” Jaime will use her 10+ years as an instructor and performer to side-coach and note where scenes are not reaching their full potential. If you’re interested in taking your scene work to the next level of creativity, look no further than this class.

Jaime Moyer is the writer/creator of the viral hit "Fancy Catz" which can be seen on YouTube at the Second City Network.  Jaime has written and performed sketch comedy for ten years, including writing and performing original material for The Second City-Detroit, where she was a mainstage member, and Planet Ant Theater where she also served as Artistic Director.  Jaime recently created new content and directed Miley Montana: The Musical for The Second City Hollywood.  Her recent sketch credits also include: Google My Tweet at Second City Hollywood and Jack, Morris and Jones at iO WEST. Jaime can be seen performing weekly at The Second City-Hollywood and iO West, appeared on Parks and Recreation as mail lady Roz Degrandis, and recently was seen on the red carpet for The Oscars in a video with Jimmy Kimmel.

Chickprov with Rachel Hamilton

Chickprov is a Ladies’ Only Workshop. No Boys Allowed. This workshop will, of course, begin with all of us in a lingerie-clad pillow fight, after which, time permitting, we will improvise. We will play with the intention of exploring the ways in which we as women have internalized what is culturally expected of us.

• What do we not allow ourselves to say? To be?

• Where do we hit our heads on our own permission of how we are allowed to behave?

In this workshop we will look at the limiting beliefs we have ingested, play with getting that nonsense out of our systems and emerge as bolder improvisers who play fiercely, with more freedom and truth.

Rachel Hamilton is an accomplished Improvisational Actor, Storyteller and is widely regarded as one of the best Improv teachers working today. A former Mainstage cast member at The Second City, Chicago, Rachel learned her craft from and with the best, having shared the stage with geniuses like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Scott Adsit, Nia Vardalos and many more incredible artists.

Tuition: $65
Please Note: Women Only
Instructor: Rachel Hamilton
Day/Date/Time: Sunday, April 27th, from 2pm – 5pm
Location: Tides Theatre, 533 Sutter Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco
