Class Description


From day one you will jump into a series of fun warm ups and games designed to ease you into improv. Before you know it you will be playing scenes and learning how to heighten and explore your ideas. As the class progresses you will learn how to do 2 person scenes, group scenes, group games and how to deliver simple monologues. The class is all about fun and support. Whether you are a beginner who has never improvised or someone who has improv experience, you will learn strong fundamentals that will build your confidence, improve speaking skills and foster spontaneity

All students will be asked to show proof of vaccination prior to the first session in order to participate in this class

Instructor: Charlie Nicholson

Charlie was born during the Blizzard of 1989 in the small town of Pomfret, Connecticut. He loves Star Wars, puzzles, tomatoes, and cats. If you want to impress him, mention Ray Bradbury in passing. A proud Story Pirate, he's an alumnus of Vassar College and he works as Education Fellow at the New York Public Library! In addition to teaching and performing at the Magnet, Charlie runs Improv-for-Beginners and Improv-for-Actors workshops in high schools, libraries, film academies, bachelorre parties, graduation ceremonies, weddings, haunted houses, and baby showers all across the 5 boroughs and beyond.

Charlie has studied comedy at the Magnet Theater and UCB, but he really got cookin' with THE LIMIT back at Vassar in the early '10s. He spends his leisure time drawing, sleeping, and giving directions.

New York acting highlights include; The Ginsberg Project (Alchemical Theater), Height of Success (Secret Theater), Ambrosia (Manhattan Rep), The Disastrous Tale of Vera and Linus (Kipuka Theater/Salem Art Works) and Drag/Stein (Target Margin/Bushwick Starr).

Let's get these Halloween parties going, but don't forget to start planning your Mid-Summer outfits!
