Event description

Description

Good scenework is the indispensable foundation of improv. No matter how brilliantly constructed your format, no matter how dazzling your wit, if you can't play a solid scene, your improv will eventually burn and crumble to the ground with you in it. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT? Of course not.

ColdTowne Conservatory Director John Ratliff wants to help. Every Thursday in December, we'll be digging into the essentials of scenework, deconstructing all the different ways there are to make stuff happen onstage. While the primary focus will be on the classic formula of Reality + Fun Thing + Heightening = Scene, we'll also take side trips into group scenes, nonverbal scenework, and navigating the choppy waters of absurd nonrealistic scenes ('cause they're gonna happen, y'all).

Each class will be based in part on what the participants specifically want to work on, so that you can get the most out of your two hours. It'll be fun and you'll learn things!

Sign up now to give your scenework a firm but loving kick in the ass.
