Class Description

In this class (inspired by ADX - The Armando Diaz Experience), improvisers will work on creating a variety of scenes off a truthful monologue (provided by Magnet Theater storytelling students) -- grounded and emotional scenes, fun and silly scenes, group scenes, and more. The entire class will work as an ensemble to create an hour long show with patience, sustainability, patterns and storylines that converge in the end. We'll focus on details, relationships and how we can gain inspiration off the smallest of specifics. If you've enjoyed ADX Saturdays at 7:30pm, then this is the class for you!

Instructor: Megan Gray
