Shows, workshops & social events
July 31st – August 10th

Improv is for everyone, not just established actors and comedians. To prove it, we're offering you a fun intro session for FREE!

Each session will be hosted by one or two of our most enthusiastic teachers and performance ensemble members. You'll be guided through a few of the most exciting and inspiring activities and exercises from our Level 1 curriculum.

Expect heaps of fun in a low-pressure environment, with lots of like-minded people. There's absolutely no obligation to continue on to a paid class, but trust us, you'll probably want to!

Spaces are limited, so book now!

Once registered, please let us know ASAP if you won't be able to attend – we'll gladly let you reschedule for free with at least 2 hours of notice provided. Registrants who no-show or late-cancel will be asked to pay a modest fee to rebook.
