Improvised Monologues | Teacher: James Quesada
Monday, May 16 | 7-10p | $30 | In the Purple Room
Uh-oh. You're on stage but no one else is there, it's just you. How did this happen? You jumped out to edit the scene, ready for the next one, and the rest of your troupe took a moment to tie their shoes. Bad timing on your part.

Stay in Your Head | Teacher: Chris Petersen
Thursday, May 19 | 7-10p | $30 | In the Purple Room
In improv, do you find yourself wishing you could 'get out of your head'? Why? Maybe you should stay there. Trust your instincts, reactions, and the one character you can play best (hint: it's you) when you're onstage.
Extreme Listening | Teacher: Nuverre Naami SOLD OUT
Sunday, May 22 | 12-3pm | $30 | In the Go Comedy HQ
In this session we will give your ears a workout like never before! We'll dive into creating stronger scenework with a focus on presence and active listening. We'll also explore the realms of "listening" visually and physically and uncover the secret behind the coveted "callback" (Hint, there isn't one!). After this workshop you'll realize that everything you ever need in a scene is already there...if you're listening!

*SOLD OUT* PARALLEL UNIVERSES | Teacher: Chris Petersen
Thursday, May 26 | 7-10pm | $30 | In the Purple Room
