Limelight TheaterWednesdays
February 17 – March 23

Limelight Theater

St. Augustine, FL 32084

Throughout this 6-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.

PLAYSHOP: Improv for EverybodyAINplayshop!

Monday, February 15th
6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Rock Art Studio
1333 Old Dixie Highway, Unit 9
St. Augustine, FL 32084

Explore the basic concepts of improvisation in a warm, safe and supportive environment by taking a bite out of an improv sampler class. Check your inhibitions at the door and and discover how to feel more confident, and more fun, in your everyday life. How? By playing games. Improvisational theater games aren’t just for actors or comedians. They’re great for anyone who wants to be more spontaneous, communicate more effectively, and be more present. Designed for everybody and anybody, the class will play with the “yes, and …” concept that’s the cornerstone of improvisational theater. You’ll leave having had a taste of being – and reacting – in the moment, accepting gifts from classmates, and celebrating the joy of failure. No experience with acting or comedy needed – only a willingness to discover endless possibilities without a script!
