Class Description

What is the form? That is the question. In this eight week class the instructor will develop a new long form structure, inspired by YOU (the students.) This new form will serve as the basis of a show to be performed in a three week run on the main-stage at the Magnet Theater. This class is for advanced students. Prerequisite: Magnet Improv Level 3

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