Improvisation Week - July 27 - 31, 8:30 - 4:00
Ages: 10 & up Cost: $300
If you've ever wondered about the enriching possibilities of improv and want to learn more, this program is for you! Improvisation training helps actors build confidence, courage, and creativity. It also teaches them to trust their instincts, to learn to stay out of their head, to listen, and to respond honestly. Perhaps more than any other acting training, improv work opens up possibilities and helps you grow both on and off the stage. And it's a lot of fun! Directed by Victor Toman, veteran of the Tony-award winning San Francisco Mime Troupe, who has taught and directed theater for over 20 years.
Here at The Barre Opera House, we care about the performance, but our camp motto is 'process over product.’ Let's have a great theater experience!
