Use It to Prove It
What do you do when your character would say “no” but you want to keep moving forward? Anything that happens in the scene is an opportunity to prove who you character is. When your character has an opportunity to do something, do it and prove who your character is while doing it!
This workshop will help you trust in your character and replace those moments of thinking or talking about what happens next into moments of doing what happens next.
Prerequisite: Level 1 or equivalent basic improv skills
Date & Time: Sunday, October 30th 11:00am-2:00pm
