Class Description


Team Performance Workshop is a crash course for students specifically interested in auditioning for Megawatt, Magnet's house team ensemble. The first section includes eight weeks of classes during which students are split into two eight-person groups. In the second section ensembles rehearse with a coach outside of class to produce a six week run of shows on the Magnet Mainstage. This class is offered approximately twice a year.

Note: The application process for Team Performance Workshop is extremely competitive and spots are limited. The sixteen most highly recommended students, based on feedback from all previous instructors, will be offered placement.

Prerequisite to Apply: Advanced Improv Level One (if completed before August 2024) or Advanced Level 2

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: noon on 6/24
NOTIFICATION DATE: 7/1

Instructor: Louis Kornfeld

Louis Kornfeld began improvising way back in 2003, when both his phone and online presence were at the forefront of millennium culture. He's been a proud member of the Magnet Theater since it opened its doors, having logged countless hours as a performer, intern, house manager, member of 'The Boss,' Megawatt director, and (for the past fifteen years) teacher of improvisation. What can he say? He loves it.

In addition to improv, Louis is also an award winning writer and actor whose work is routinely featured on 'The Truth' podcast. Check it out, why don't you?

You can see him performing every Sunday night with the great Rick Andrews in 'Kornfeld & Andrews.' They have some short videos online you might enjoy.

He thinks you're doing great.
