Since, 2011 the Alchemy Comedy Theater has been committed to teaching the art of improv comedy throughout the Greenville area. That's why we are sponsoring the 4th Annual New South Comedy Festival guest workshops. These are one time chances to learn from a veteran instructors from throughout the country.

Behavior is a Game
Some of the most enjoyable scenic games to play are based in the emotional interplay of the characters. One player's behavior inspires an impulsive response in their partner. Patterns of behavior emerge and help form a game. Justifications bubble up from your unconscious to make sense of what's happening which leads to more ideas of how to play the game. Observe your scene partner, call out their behavior, respond impulsively and let the circumstances tumble out to make a game.
