Improv and the Playwright

Improv games teach children to release the power within their own imagination as well as the joys of working together. This workshop uses improv to illustrate those points while also teaching students the elements of story structure, dramatic tension and characterization. Students begin with ensemble building through quick-thinking pantomime games and working together to tell stories non-verbally. Then, working in small groups they write, rehearse and perform their own original works.
