 CHARACTER INTENSIVE

This 6-week master class will offer an intense focus on character development. We'll learn how to create real people from the improviser's "outside-in" approach and then develop those people -
physically, emotionally and psychologically - through a series of deep-diving acting and improv exercises. Once we have our people, we'll have a blast putting them into several different scene structures and play formats, allowing our characters to develop over time through a series of interactions and experiences. This class is limited to just 8 participants to allow for maximum stage time.
