Description

Inspired by the simple creative tenet of “don’t tell me, show me,”, we take curriculum based
materials and make them stage worthy. Designed for both the classroom instructor and creative
artist, this workshop will provide simple tools to inspire and engage students and teachers alike.
In this training participants will:
* Learn basic improvisational theatre terminology & philosophy!
* Play improv & tableau games that encourage you to trust your instincts!
* Use imagination to solve problems as a group!
* Have fun and build unity as a team!
* Work in small groups to create & present!
* Have fun and laugh!
