Intro to Improv @Central CMR

Join us in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room to get creative with the art of improvisation!

Synergy Theater's Kenn Adams will teach participants the three rules of improvisation: be spontaneous, make your partner look good, and build on your partner's idea. In no time flat we'll be making up stories, creating outrageous characters, and improvising our way through hilarious scenes, sagas, and sketches. Great for performers and non-performers alike. 

For ages 18 and up. No registration, audition, or experience is required.
