Each master class course offered at this level is instructor-driven. Students will get to study the Harold and related performance pieces at an advanced level and will receive in-depth personal feedback about their own performance and progress as improvisers.
This is a 12-week course. You must apply to be in this class, even if you have taken an Advanced Study level course before. Please see instructions below.
12 Week Advanced Harold Workshop with Shannon O'Neill
This class will focus on what it is like to be part of a team. After a couple of weeks, the class will be split into two teams. For the remainder of the sessions, each team will work exclusively with each other, learning what it is like to build a group mind and embrace teammates for their strengths and support them while they work on their individual weaknesses.
This class has a heavy focus on organic improv. Your minds will be opened up to new ways of looking at the Harold and you will be pushed into truly being in the moment. Do not apply to this class if you can not make all 12 classes and three shows, the last thing you want to do in this class is let your teammates down. Students will have opportunities to perform at the UCB Theatre.
