SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: The Funny & The Familiar: Improvising w/ purpose  with Joe Hartzler


Find more funny in your scenes by establishing familiar, realistic specifics, and learn to strike the balance between the two- too much of one without the other makes for boring scenework. This is a Long-form improv workshop with an emphasis on game, and generating information to help ground scenes in reality. By breaking scenes into two parts: The Funny & The Familiar, you'll never find yourself stuck again. Ever. I promise.

* 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.
