Improv Workshop for Interactive Scripted Theatre

With Mike Young

Venue: StageCoach Theatre Company office, 44121 Harry Byrd Highway, Suite 240, Ashburn, VA 20147

Workshop Cost: $30

Interactive Scripted Theatre provides a unique challenge for actors. How do you bring the audience into the play and make them part of the world of the show? How do you deal with the inherent instability and chaos caused by audience interactions? What can you do to keep the script from completely going off the rails? This class will teach how to use improv theatre techniques to enhance audience interactions and keep the show running smoothly.

Improv experience is recommended but not required. This would be the perfect class to take if you are interested in acting in our murder mysteries but have only performed in stage productions.
