Improv Technique For Actors

This month, the Chicago Actors Studio will be holding a special one-day free workshop focusing on important improvisation techniques.  This workshop is designed to be an introduction to our main Improv Class with Tim O'Malley.

This workshop will cover fundamental improv skills including:

- Thinking on your feet
- The importance of saying "Yes, and..."
- Telling a story
- Reacting in the moment
- Creating a scene based on given circumstances
- Working with an ensemble

Improvisational tools can be effectively used by actors in their auditions, rehearsals, and performances, and will give performers the confidence to trust their instincts, receive with gratitude, and support their fellow performers, making them more dynamic and skillful practitioners of their craft.

This workshop series promises to be enlightening, challenging and Fun!

Friday, November 22nd
8:00pm to 10:00pm
