Mopco Fundamentals Class: Narrative
Improv Fundamentals: Narrative
Class Dates: Saturdays on Sept 22, 29, Oct 6, 13, 20, 27 @ 10:30 am
Performance Date: Saturday, November 3rd - 7:00 pm
Improvisers are not only the actors on stage but the writers, too. This course focuses on what makes a strong, compelling story and gives you the skills necessary to create one on your feet, out loud, in front of an audience. Not just for improvisers, this course is great for writers and storytellers of all varieties!
Through improv exercises and exploring different methods of storytelling, students will learn to work collaboratively to create a coherent story collaboratively with their scene partners. The six-week class will culminate in a performance by the class here at the Mopco for friends and family to attend before a Saturday night mainstage show.
Some improv experience and basic knowledge are helpful in making this class as rewarding as it can possibly be for students and their peers. If you do not have some basic improv knowledge before taking this class, we recommend you take an Improv Essentials class or take Improv 101 before taking any of the Fundamentals classes.
Each Improv Fundamentals and Musical Improv 6-Week course each has a unique performance element that showcases the skills you focused on during the class. You'll be able to show off to your friends and family everything you've learned. The performance is not mandatory but we bet you'll want to take part. Participation is dependant on consistent attendance. Students will receive two free tickets as part of their enrollment in the class. One ticket will be to attend the show after their performance and the other is to be used at the discretion of the student during the duration of the class.
