SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: Making Scenework Easier with Chris Gethard

You put a lot of hard work into improv, but when it's at its best it should actually feel easy. We'll take a look at some simple ways to get out of your own way, increase the likelihood of success for your scenes, and ultimately to avoid the traps that lead to headaches on stage. If we wanted improv to be difficult, we'd write second drafts and be held accountable for our actions. Let's keep it easy.


PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR THESE DCM WORKSHOPS. READ THE POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING AND ENROLLING

Maximum class size is 16.

* You must be listed on the DCM website as a performer in a group from out of town to enroll.  The registrar will check for your name and if you are not listed when you enroll, you will be removed from the workshop and lose $50.
