Limelight Theatre

Throughout this 8-week course, students will explore the basic concepts of improvisation in a warm, safe and supportive environment. The class is designed to build self-confidence and explore creativity using the fundamentals of improvisation. Designed for both actors and non-actors, it will expose students to:

  • Being – and reacting — in the moment.
  • Accepting and building on gifts from other classmates.
  • Embracing – and using — failure.
  • Co-creating with others (listening, communicating, giving & taking focus).
  • Thriving in an unscripted environment.

Students leaving this course will have a working understanding of the basic fundamentals of improvisational theater as well as an increased appreciation, and comfort, with being on stage without a script.

CLASS: Level 3 Improv – Characters, Emotions & Relationships – Oh My!
(Prerequisite: Levels 1 & 2)Improv Basics 2
Tuesdays, October 25th – December 13th
7 – 9 p.m.

Level 3 Improv takes the “yes, and…” concept and directs it to building strong characters, connecting through authentic relationships and developing emotions that heighten scenes. Play short form improv games, continue developing scene work and begin to stick your toes into long form improv waters.  Class culminates in a student showcase.

CLASS: NEW! Level 4 Improv – Scenework Foundations
(Prerequisite: Levels 1, 2 & 3)Improv Basics 2 Showcase
Wednesdays, October 26th – December 21st

After learning the improv language, how to create characters, and, how to build relationships with that language and those characters, what will you do next? Create great scenes of course! Lay a solid foundation for your scenework by learning to initiate scenes with purpose, recognize games and patterns, and heighten the action. Class culminates in a student showcase.

Level 2 will be offered again in early 2017.

The Adventure Project’s improv training center is comprised of five levels of improv instruction.
